Subscription fees for Xata Turnpike, a division of Xata, will be directly added to customers' Verizon Wireless bills.
"Enterprises across the board are looking to streamline fleet operations, both in the truck and in the office, to reduce costs and increase efficiency," said Benigno Gonzalez, vice president of sales operations for Verizon Wireless.
Xata Turnpike's RouteTracker device transmits Global Positioning System (GPS) and other important vehicle data to a wireless phone and sends the data back to a hosted website. Verizon Wireless customers can easily access Xata Turnpike on their Verizon Wireless handsets, providing fleet efficiencies such as hours of service tracking and logging. Through the partnership, Verizon Wireless customers can integrate fleet and driver data with other third-party applications they are using so the data can be easily collected and analyzed.
"In today's economic environment, efficiency is everything," said Brendan Staub, senior vice president of sales, Xata Turnpike. "Verizon Wireless customers can now take advantage of Xata Turnpike's low-cost solution to improve fleet operations and remain HOS compliant, all without adding an additional step to their accounting processes."
