2018 Ford trucks linked to Telogis platform through SYNC Connect

2018 Ford F-150Ford, America’s truck leader, introduces the new 2018 Ford F-150 – now even tougher, even smarter and even more capable than ever.

At its annual business conference, Telogis, A Verizon Company, announced that Ford commercial customers will be able to use Ford SYNC Connect to access the services of the Telogis Mobile Resource Management (MRM) software platform.

The Telogis platform provides vehicle location, driver behavior, navigation, route planning and optimization, and compliance applications for companies with fleets and mobile workers.

“Ford commercial customers are hard-working and their vehicles are important tools for their success,” said Michael Seneski, director of Ford Commercial Solutions. “By accessing these services from Telogis through SYNC Connect, they can transform the way they monitor and optimize their fleets.”

Customers who order the 2018 Ford F-150 with SYNC Connect can link their vehicles to their existing Ford Telematics or Telogis accounts.  This capability will soon be made available in other Ford commercial vehicles including Ford Super Duty, Transit and Transit Connect. Customers also can choose to have Ford Telematics factory-installed in current Ford commercial vehicles.

“The addition of connectivity in Ford commercial vehicles provides value for customers that goes way beyond owning a great truck,” said Susan Heystee, senior vice president, worldwide OEM sales at Telogis, “Once Ford customers are connected to the Telogis platform through SYNC Connect, it’s like turning the lights on and getting insight into every aspect of their mobile business.”
