“An issue that has proved problematic for fleet managers is the lack of internal expertise regarding mobile technology and the accompanying inability to plan, deploy, and manage optimal, integrated solutions,” explained Jeanine Sterling, Industry Director | Information and Communication and Technology at Frost & Sullivan. “Outside partners can provide that expertise and are becoming increasingly crucial to successful implementations. When evaluating potential mobility partners, thought leaders recommend looking for industry-specific knowledge, technology roadmap support, device lifecycle management capabilities, and a commitment to ongoing R&D.”
