SAN DIEGO, Calif. — Velociti has announced a new Deployment as a Service model, which will help motor carriers install and manage various technology systems across their fleets.
The new service, available in Canada as well as the US, was announced at the American Trucking Associations Management Conference & Exhibition.
“Our focus has always been on helping technology providers and fleets properly plan, implement and support technology solutions quickly, efficiently and professionally,” said Deryk Powell, president of Velociti. “Deployment as a Service spreads out up-front costs and includes life-cycle support services at a predictable cost for our customers. As industry adoption of on-board technology continues to grow at a rapid pace, Deployment as a Service ensures fleets can leverage technology solutions as quickly as possible and maximize their return on investment.”
The new service is subscription-based, allowing fleets to spread out the costs of deploying technologies over a multi-year term. The company will capture fleet vehicles in the field, install the necessary hardware and then provide ongoing 24/7 support.
“With so many great technology solutions available today, fleets have a lot to consider when determining what is right for their operations,” Powell said. “Up front costs to deploy on-board technology typically range from 10% to 50% of hardware costs, and maintaining the long-term health and performance of the technology is a cost that must be accounted for as well.”
