December 9, 2011
BASKING RIDGE, N.J., and ATLANTA — Verizon Wireless and Pedigree Technologies announced that the companies will offer OneViewPOV, a suite of tablet applications for fleet and field service management on the Verizon Wireless network. With OneViewPOV, said the companies, mobile workers can now have a single device in their vehicles for tracking, routing, and logging driver hours of service, as well as utilization in the field.

As a newly launched Verizon Wireless Business Solution Alliance, Pedigree and Verizon Wireless said their working relationship is focused on providing mobile computing, machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, and cloud applications that make the mobile enterprise more productive and profitable. By packaging the OneViewPOV applications with a broad range of tablet configurations and the Verizon Wireless network, users have a reliable, cost-effective way to increase the productivity of people in the field while simultaneously providing the organization with a comprehensive view of the mobile enterprise via the cloud, said the companies.

“In fleet management, the speed to make decisions is a catalyst for companies to save money and resources — and when it is being executed over a reliable network, then the workflow and results are exponentially realized,” said Michael Toto, director, enterprise and government partnerships, Verizon Wireless. “Pedigree Technologies’ OneViewPOV solution encompasses all the key nuances a business needs to streamline their workflow and smartly deploy their services to their customers.”

“This is really about making our customers more productive and profitable by implementing what we refer to as condition-based service management and closing the service loop for mobile workers who could be driving a truck, filling a fuel tank, or changing filters on an HVAC system,” said Ian McPherson, vice president of marketing and product management, Pedigree Technologies.
