It also needs to present intelligence and produce insights that help a business make smart decisions to efficiently deploy resources, sharpen its competitive edge and become a better supplier for its customers – setting it up for long-term success. The level of success, however, depends on the quality of the solution, which comes down to reliability, the amount of visibility into fleet assets and total cost of ownership.
