n addition to providing customers with the solutions that can help businesses be more efficient and productive, recent analysis of anonymized usage data from Verizon Connect showed how customers can transform their business using the comprehensive Verizon Connect fleet management software platform. According to the 2021 study, Verizon Connect customers can see significant improvements through cost reductions, a focus on driver safety and reduction of vehicle idling which is a source of CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions.
The data analysis from more than 1,800 active customers showed that using Verizon Connect helped customers lower emissions and promoted safe driving. The data also showed that active customers experienced improvements related to driver safety including:
- Speeding: up to 34% average monthly reduction
- Harsh driving events: up to 26% average monthly reduction
- Idling: up to 9% average monthly reduction
“One of the key tenets of Verizon Connect is ‘innovation with purpose’, which for us means developing products that allow our customers to transform their business — through massive cost reduction, prioritizing driver safety and the ability to dramatically improve their own customers’ experience, and all while being more and more eco-friendly,” said Peter Mitchell, senior vice president and general manager of Verizon Connect “and this study underlines that this is exactly what we are delivering.”
