Platform Science, an enterprise IoT fleet management platform, partnered with Werner Enterprises on the integration of the company’s technology within Werner’s fleet of nearly 8,000 trucks. Platform Science will equip Werner with the necessary tools to easily deploy new applications and services that support its unique business needs, meet evolving compliance requirements, and enhance the overall driver experience.
“Our drivers require best-in-class technology to keep them efficient and safe on the road, which is why we remain focused on developing new technology-rich solutions and offerings through our innovation initiative, Werner EDGE,” explained Danny Lilley, VP of Fleet Systems and Technology for Werner Enterprises. “Incorporating Platform Science into our new tablet-based telematics solution allows us to provide a smart workflow, reduce manual data entry, and improve navigation and safety features, an important step in furthering our company’s unwavering commitment to our drivers and moving the industry forward.”
Through this partnership, Werner trucks will be outfitted with Platform Science’s full suite of products including its catalogue of applications and third-party app marketplace. The company’s open platform will enable Werner to customize and scale its in-cabin and backend experiences, ensuring flexibility and control over all of its technologies.
“As one of the largest and most progressive enterprise fleets in the nation and a pioneer of electronic logs, Werner has consistently been a leader in developing and implementing cutting-edge technologies to improve its fleet operations and keep America moving,” said Jake Fields, co-founder and CTO of Platform Science. “We worked closely with the Werner team to hone in on their fleet’s unique needs and provided them with the necessary tools to execute their operations easily and efficiently, while seamlessly controlling all of their technologies on one easy-to-use interface.”
Werner plans to roll out its new telematics device, EDGE Connect, to all drivers by the first quarter of 2021.
