Velocity Truck Rental & Leasing is built on eliminating customers’ inherent business risks associated with managing and operating a fleet while providing highly responsive, personalized service. They offer customized, flexible solutions utilizing the latest technology to partner with customers and promote their success in today’s rapidly evolving business environment. Platform Science was implemented at VTRL to satisfy the need for an upgraded telematics system to support future technology changes.

The Challenges

VTRL was in need of enhanced tracking and reporting of their assets, as well as the desire for custom reports for their unique business in the rental and leasing segment. Translated vehicle fault functionality was also requested to help make better decisions regarding solutions for vehicle breakdowns and to arrive at best practices to serve their customers.

The Benefits

By partnering with Platform Science, VTRL has benefitted in many ways:

  • Enhanced equipment location and tracking

  • Simplified access to data such as fuel usage, mileage, and engine hours

  • Eliminated manual processes

  • Saved time in the billing process

  • Gained independence in administering their program


The Future

Ultimately, Platform Science will support both telematics in their J1939 heavy duty systems as well as their light and medium duty systems, blending them both under one platform that will allow flexibility and simplicity.

Partnering and working with the Platform Science Team has been a terrific experience. Everyone has been very helpful in learning to understand our needs for an enhanced telematics system that meets our challenges as well as provide good collaborative solutions to those needs.
