DIRECTV and Fleetmatics Group have entered into a master subscription services agreement to enhance tracking, driver safety and on-time arrivals for the satellite broadcaster's fleet of vehicles making service calls.
DIRECTV will add Fleetmatics' REVEAL+ cloud-based solution to its 6,200 service vans, cars, and pickup trucks.
"Fleetmatics' advanced tracking system offers the ideal mobile workforce solution for DIRECTV’s field-based operations," said David Baker, senior vice president of field services for DIRECTV. "This partnership will help our business operate more efficiently while continuing to deliver on our promise of industry-leading customer service."
Fleetmatics REVEAL is a fleet management solution designed to drive cost savings and improve productivity for virtually any mobile workforce, according to the company. Fleetmatics REVEAL+ enables enterprise customers with larger fleets, such as DIRECTV, to manage complex organizational structures and large numbers of users, as well as to deliver actionable executive level business intelligence across the entire enterprise.
DIRECTV provides digital television entertainment services to more than 39 million customers in the U.S. and Latin America, according to the company.
