Fleet management data drives changes to driver behavior, new Verizon analysis says

The use of fleet management software to analyze information from connected vehicles is resulting in real value for businesses in terms of safer and more efficient driver behavior, according to new analysis from Verizon Connect, the operator’s telematics’ business.

“For field service businesses, vehicle utilization can be a primary source of lost efficiency and a leading indicator of areas of improvement,” Verizon Connect said in a new report. The company’s analysis was based on report utilization figures from 720 U.S.-based fleets and more than 27,000 individual vehicles that Verizon Connect supports.
