In another move BlackBerry joined hands with Fleet Complete, which serves 250,000 subscribers and 10,000 businesses around the world through its tie up with
Fleet Complete will sell BlackBerry Radar technology alongside its existing services in a package executives described as “unbeatable” .
The tie up with Fleet complete is aimed at getting Radar” to the market faster. “What we anticipate here with this partnership is the more rapid expansion of opportunity for us to get to customers that we may not have otherwise been able to get to as quickly,” said Philip Poulidis, BlackBerry’s senior vice president and general manager of Radar.
BlackBerry Radar helps track data such as load status, temperature, humidity and whether a trailer door is open or closed, information that can help companies improve efficiency.
Only about 12 per cent of trailers, chassis and flat beds use tracking systems similar to Radar, Poulidis said. “There’s a lot of room there for growth and opportunity.”
