Expanded tablet portfolio offers more choice and support for fleet managers and operators to increase business efficiencies
Seattle Wash. - June 7, 2018 - Zonar, the leader in smart fleet management technology, today announced it is expanding its driver-focused offerings to include the Samsung Galaxy Tab E tablet. With Zonar's solution on the Galaxy Tab E, commercial fleets receive a managed and secure mobile solution that provides vehicles, operators and fleet managers with critical information such as vehicle health, driver Hours of Service (HOS) and other insights to help businesses ensure the safety of their fleets. This also provides an effective solution to manage compliance with industry regulations, such as the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) requirements determined by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
With the addition of the Samsung Galaxy Tab E into Zonar’s existing solution set, the company can deliver its industry-leading fleet management solutions with a growing list of trusted third-party apps to enable customers to address additional business needs. Fleet managers, for instance, can use the solution to increase performance and asset utilization, streamline data capture, reporting and analysis, and ensure compliance and data security.
"Zonar understands that fleet management solutions are not one size fits all. We are pleased to include Samsung in our tablet portfolio solutions, enabling us to deliver customizable business critical apps drivers depend on, wherever they go," said Larry Jordan, chief product officer at Zonar. "The apps Zonar offers meet a stringent set of criteria before release to ensure they meet the high levels of security, versatility, and support that our customers have come to expect."
Together, the Zonar and Samsung Galaxy Tab E solution serves as a secure, managed alternative to unmanaged and unprotected personal devices. By using Zonar's trusted ecosystem of hardware, software and apps, fleet managers can minimize security risks and ensure operators are using updated and regulation-compliant devices. The Samsung-Zonar solution also incorporates Samsung Knox, the company's defense-grade mobile security platform and Zonar Mobile Shield for mobile device management. The Zonar-Samsung solution is available immediately and Zonar will serve as the point of contact for sales, warranties, data management, customer service and compliance expertise.
"Today's rapidly evolving supply chain is placing additional pressures on fleets, requiring secure, user friendly and compliant telematics solutions from trusted partners that are able to scale and provide value-added services from security to apps to mobile device management," said Susan Beardlee of ABI Research.
