DRVR partners with Tata Communications
International fleet management application provider, DRVR, has selected Tata Communications as its global IoT connectivity partner to help improve Asia's vehicle fleets. Leveraging Tata Communications' mobility solution, MOVE, DRVR says it can convert information collected from vehicles across Thailand, Myanmar, Philippines, and Indonesia into actionable insights to help drive efficiencies and improve cost savings through smarter fleet management.
Vehicles in fleets using DRVR technology have been fitted with Tata Communications' MOVE-IOT Connect SIM technology. The sensors transmit data collected in real time using Tata Communications' MOVE, which connects services using the best available local cellular network. The DRVR application then processes and analyzes this data, turning it into actionable intelligence and further illustrating fleet performance metrics on mobile or laptop devices.
David Henderson, Co-founder and CEO of DRVR, said, "Our partnership with Tata Communications enables us to overcome two major challenges in our quest to create smarter fleets across our entire geographical footprint. First, rather than negotiate multiple contracts with individual service providers, our entire international IoT network is managed through Tata Communications. As a result, we get valuable visibility of data collected across borders so that we can realize the benefits of smarter fleet management. Second, it allows us a holistic view on a singular dashboard allowing us to respond with improved accuracy and eliminating downtime almost entirely."
Anthony Bartolo, Chief Product Officer, Collaboration, Mobility and IoT, Tata Communications, added, "DRVR's ambition is to revolutionize international fleet management by making it smarter, borderless, and seamless. With Tata Communications MOVE, DRVR only needs to deal with one service provider that takes care of multiple deployments across international borders. Our product portfolio gives any business with a network of assets better control over their costs, reduces time spent on supplier management, and enables actionable data to be derived from operational IoT data. All in all, it is an intuitive solution for improving fleet management operations thereby enhancing business performance and success."
Tata Communications' MOVE service will be rolled out to DRVR customers through its smart fleet management applications.
