Rogers, Fleet Complete launch fleet management solutions
Canadian telecom operator Rogers Communications and Fleet Complete announced a strategic partnership to provide local businesses with a full range of commercial fleet management and asset tracking solutions.
This collaboration will deliver connected technologies, including vehicle and asset GPS tracking, to businesses that own and operate fleets across Canada and the United States, Rogers said in a release.
With this announcement, Rogers says it now offers customers an integrated management platform that allows businesses in all industries to offer an improved customer experience by providing accurate arrival estimates and proof of delivery with time and location stamps.
“In partnership with Fleet Complete, Rogers is bringing Canadian businesses the latest in critical fleet management solutions,” said Dean Prevost, president, Rogers for Business. “With Fleet Complete’s innovative IoT platform, we are enabling fleet-owning businesses of all sizes to elevate the customer experience and use smart technologies to drive cost-effectiveness and improve safety.”
Rogers Fleet Complete solution also helps municipalities build smarter cities through the visibility and optimization of fleets including public transportation and city maintenance vehicles.
Tony Lourakis, founder and CEO of Fleet Complete said: “We are very excited to partner with Rogers, a leader in IoT, to bring leading-edge telematics solutions to more Canadian businesses. Together, we will deliver smart solutions to municipalities and bring new opportunities to the people they serve.”
Rogers said that its Fleet Complete solutions are enabled by a LTE-M network.
Rogers Communications has recently begun rolling out 5G network in select cities around Canada using equipment from Swedish vendor Ericsson.
The launch, which will start in downtown Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal, will eventually expand into over 20 more markets by the end of the year, according to the carrier.
Rogers Communications aims to start deploying spectrum sharing technology later this year, the company’s CEO Joe Natale said during a conference call with investors.
The executive said that the deployment of this technology will allow Rogers to use its current 4G spectrum for the provision of 5G.
