ABB Ventyx
One of the best solutions in the market with an easy-to-use system. This is very useful when the ABB system is existing, new, or existing; All ABB systems can be integrated using this instead of going to a third-party vendor, which might have interface issues.

For overall fleet management, maintenance scheduling, employee tracking and equipment tracking this service seems like it is an all in one package that hit all the check boxes my firm needed.

The issue is lack of hardware and software updates and support, and what appears to be an over taxed cell network that is not allowing any of these devices to work correctly.

  • Transit temperature monitoring - Verizon Connect allows us to fill in previously missing temperature information for food products in transit.
  • Vehicle location monitoring - While not our primary goal, we are able to use Verizon Connect to see if any of our vehicles has stopped for an excessive amount of time. This helps us ensure safety of our vehicle drivers.

  • Contractor install is very cumbersome, inconvenient, and causes downtime.
  • Tracking had lots of unexplained glitches, thousands of miles added and lost to various trucks out of nowhere.
  • Customer Service is quick to "open a case" on any issues, but lacks follow-up and solutions.
  • Lots of problems are "sent to development."

Verizon Connect has great customer service. Our account manager has always replied quickly to any inquiries of mine and has been very knowledgeable and reliable. Drivers who've occasionally needed to call into the customer service helpline have quickly had their questions answered and problems resolved. All reports I've received from them about their experiences have been positive, stating that the Verizon Connect employees have been courteous and helpful, resolving their issue quickly and efficiently.

Verizon is more precise with GPS, but the easy installation and quick onboarding make Motive the winner. Verizon connect has better accuracy and less chance of removal, but the interface set up take away from its ease of use. Motive is easily installed and can be transferred between vehicles that Verizon connect cannot.

Verizon Business (formerly Verizon Enterprise)
  • Costly compared to other GPS programs.
  • Tied to long term contracts. Representatives do not know how to cancel service.
  • Must wait until the end of the contract to request cancellation. If you miss date, you are tied to another 3 years.
