Mobile workforce managers looking to make more informed investment and
planning decisions as they consider moving to electric vehicles (EVs) from
their gasoline-powered ones will benefit from new enhancements, developed
exclusively for EVs, in the Verizon Connect Reveal fleet management
platform. For those customers who have already made the leap to EVs, the new
updates to Reveal enable customers to easily manage their EVs and
gas-powered vehicles, increase uptime by seeing their EVs’ charging and
battery status information all from one platform, and more.
Beginning next month, Verizon Connect Reveal customers in the U.S. and
Canada will be able to more effectively support various vehicle types – both
gasoline-powered and EVs – in one pane of glass. These enhancements will
support all Reveal customers including government, small and medium-sized
businesses (SMBs) and large enterprise customers who have any combination of
Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs), Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs)
and Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles with OBD-II Standard Protocol.
Planning for the implementation of EVs can be evaluated from data and
analytics from the Verizon Connect Reveal fleet management software
platform. The data the team is able to extract, regarding miles driven,
vehicle wear and tear, vehicle tracking and location, utilization and other
points, can inform a fleet’s EV planning decisions, including the number of
EVs included in the first phase of the rollout and future investments,
infrastructure plans for charging, EV maintenance, EV storage and yards, and
“EV adoption rates are continuing to grow and by analyzing data for just one
month, business owners can be better informed about the introduction of EVs
to their fleets,” said Peter Mitchell, senior vice president and general
manager, Verizon Connect. “Once they make the decision, the new enhancements
for EV in Reveal will support their evolving mixed-fleet management needs.”
What EV fleet managers can expect from the new release:
EV icon: Quickly identify which EVs are charging on a live map within
Mobile app support: Manage people and the fleet with location and status of
ICE vehicles, EVs and assets in the Verizon Connect Spotlight app.
Charge state: Charging status informs which EVs are actively being charged
at any given time.
Battery level: Near real-time battery level percentage to identify which EVs
in your fleet have the highest/lowest battery level.
Report: New EV-specific report that includes charging data.
EV Alerts: Configurable alert for EVs experiencing a “Low Battery.”
