Fleetmatics, GLDS team up on workforce management @CED

April 28, 2014 by Mike Robuck | Fleetmatics, Group and Great Lakes Data Systems (GLDS) have teamed-up to provide workforce management integration capabilities for independent cable operators.

Fleetmatics has paired its mobile workforce platform for fleet management with GLDS’ subscriber management and provisioning solutions.

“Combining work order data with real-time vehicle activity in the field provides an objective view into a company’s field operation and quickly highlights opportunities for improved efficiency,” said Karl Weber, vice president, enterprise for Fleetmatics. “The added layer of insight allows a cable operator to be more effective on a daily basis and better understand where operational efficiencies can be gained.”

Both companies said the ultimate goal was to provide useful and powerful information that can help with real-time decision making that works alongside independent cable operators’ existing systems.

“GLDS teamed-up with Fleetmatics to provide a powerful solution that complements WinCable and enhances overall operational effectiveness,” said GLDS president Garrick Russell. “The insight gained allows for more effective dispatching and strategic planning.”
