Twitter Interview: Mobile and Cloud Solutions for Fleet Management

Not understanding the capabilities, or lack of capabilities, of the environment of mobile and cloud solutions can turn into a very painful process for organisations, which clients will have no tolerance for, explains Jonathan Kent, VP Logistics for AmeriFleet.

Here, Jonathan talks us through his valuable experience with introducing cloud technologies into the enterprise to deliver for clients, as well as improving business processes, all in 140 characters or less!

Enterprise Mobility Exchange: Which key trends do you feel are affecting the mobility market at the moment?

J Kent: BYOD is the driving force as we choose what app platform we're going to release things in. That seems to be the most important factor.

EME: What should an organisation consider when trying to leverage cloud technology in their enterprise? What are your experiences with this?

J Kent: For us it's 100% up-time. Our clients have very little threshold for pain when it comes to the server being down or an app not running.

EME: What can mobility leaders do to overcome the obstacles they may face when trying to implement cloud technology in their organisations?

J Kent: It's important to work with people that have already implemented the technologies to understand what their pain points were.

EME: Where do you believe AmeriFleet are leading the way in terms of Enterprise Mobility and IT? What has been your greatest success to date?

J Kent: The implementation of real-time capture of events, and delivering the information that is needed to the user that actually needs it.

EME: Where do you think that the mobility market is heading in the next 12 - 18 months? What do you think will have the biggest impact and why?

J Kent: We're seeing wearables become a great potential solution to provide training and information to our employees to keep them up to date.
