Today’s motor vehicle is no longer for transportation only – it’s also a highly advanced mobile office that integrates voice, data, video, warning and operating systems. As new technologies evolve, vehicles are becoming more complex – and so do their upfits. Vehicle upfits for mobile offices must solve specific business problems and meet work function requirements, all while accounting for occupant safety and ergonomics concerns – not to mention time and budget constraints.
Maintaining the reliability of mobile computing systems in the field is one of the most challenging aspects of fleet professionals today. These devices must perform critical job functions and maintain data flow in tough operating conditions. While there are several keys to a total mobility solution including Software, Hardware, Connectivity, Docking & Mounting, and Professional Installation; having a reliable continuous power supply is the most critical factor to ensure productivity on the jobsite.
With this year’s Electronic Logging Devices (ELD) mandate looming ahead, it’s important for fleets to understand the impact it has on their business and strategically plan how to implement the new standards. Beyond choosing eligible devices and software to track, manage and share data, consider how those devices will be secured inside a vehicle. The right in-vehicle docking and mounting solution for devices not only protects the fleet’s investment in equipment, but also ensures a safe and comfortable mobile office for drivers – reducing the risk of distraction and increasing productivity.

By exploring the key areas of retailer-supplier communication, this report provides insights into what such a solution would entail and the business benefits it would create. Stakeholders in technology companies should take note that it is our vision that unrestricted, synchronized data sharing is the direction of the future.
