Green Bay, WI (October 22, 2019) — Regional wireless carrier Cellcom has partnered with Direct Communication Solutions, Inc. (DCS) to deliver new Internet of Things (IoT) solutions to its customers. MiFleet Business is a comprehensive fleet and asset management tool scalable for businesses of all sizes to connect and monitor speed, idle time, location and more. MiFleet Mobile is a consumer solution to monitor the health and location of a family vehicles.
“IoT solutions can help businesses create efficiency and give a consumer peace of mind. Partnering with DCS has allowed us to connect vehicles that our customers use every day over the Cellcom wireless network that they know they can rely on,” said Jeremy Huck, associate business solutions manager for Cellcom. “The benefits range from saving money and time, to simply having more knowledge and data to make better decisions.”
MiFleet Business offers easy-to-install, GPS-enabled hardware that connects to a cloud-based platform to optimize fleets from one vehicle to hundreds. The device can report on location, monitor fuel consumption, detect idle time, report on engine diagnostics and more. The data is uploaded automatically to allow for real-time notifications or reports can be scheduled to analyze data over time.
“The true power of the solution comes from leveraging the data. Small changes can make a big difference, and MiFleet Business provides the information needed to make intelligent decisions. Consider something simple like idling, which can use anywhere from a quarter- to a half-gallon of fuel per hour. Optimizing a route with MiFleet can decrease idle time and save money and time every day. That’s just one example of the efficiency our IoT solution provides.” said Wayne Hotchkiss, vice president of business development at DCS.
MiFleet Mobile scales the position and diagnostic technology powered by DCS for the everyday consumer to track the health and location of family vehicles. Common use cases include new driver monitoring, vehicle theft recovery through vehicle tracking, routine maintenance through monitoring trips and stops, as well as vehicle diagnostics and health. MiFleet Mobile also includes roadside assistance, which provides customers with towing, flat tire assistance, jump start service, fuel delivery, vehicle lock-out aid and more.
“Not only is the MiFleet Mobile interface flexible and user-friendly, but the ease of installation and affordability makes this product very accessible to consumers, whether they want to set boundaries for a new driver or have greater insight into their vehicle. MiFleet Mobile puts the power in their hands,” said Nic Beining, director of product management at Cellcom.
