Powerfleet, Inc. (Nasdaq: PWFL), a global leader of Internet of Things (IoT) software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions that optimize the performance of mobile assets and resources to unify business operations, has formed a partnership with ClickNow, a protection-as-a-service smart mobile application company. The partnership strengthens Powerfleet’s focus to provide mission-critical solutions across business operations and expands existing safety capabilities to personal safety outside of a vehicle. The ClickNow mobile application in conjunction with Powerfleet’s existing Unity platform, advanced modular solutions, and data science will continue to help Powerfleet customers save lives, time, and money.
“We are thrilled to partner with ClickNow to help take Powerfleet’s safety module, which will be released in March 2023, to a new and impactful area of mobile resources outside of a vehicle,” said Jim Zeitunian, Chief Technology Officer of Powerfleet. “The partnership marks our first of many leading technologies being incubated in our Pointer Innovation Center (PIC) in Israel, with the goal to offer it in all of our core markets.”
Accessible through Powerfleet’s Unity platform and safety module, customers will have access to a personal safety application with a built-in AI Guardian, which will conduct systematic and automated checks of the driver’s safety and provide threat alerts to the driver. The AI Guardian engages a 24/7 command control center if it is flagged for a potential emergency. Powerfleet will provide call center infrastructure support to power the ClickNow command control center. Members of the driver’s family or designated contacts can also get emergency alerts as well as day-to-day information. Over time, the AI Guardian application will become increasingly predictive, deterring and alerting drivers and fleet managers to avoid potentially dangerous locations.
“With this partnership with ClickNow, we see an opportunity to provide our customers increased safety options and save more lives,” said Ilan Goldsten, Chief Executive Officer, Pointer, part of Powerfleet. “Our vast customer base is an ideal subscriber for this safety application and our Israeli location will be the first place of deployment.”
Powerfleet offers vital information that can be used to take immediate action. Powerfleet applications give businesses the ability to gather IoT data from various high-value asset types into a comprehensive view for analysis, enabling unified operations across organizations, and improved decision-making. With the help of clear reports, dashboards, and real-time alerts, we help our customers increase safety, productivity, security, and profitability.
