Phillips Connect Partners with Velociti for Installation and Post Sales Support for its Trailer Health Monitoring Equipment

Newport Beach, CA (July 27, 2021) – Phillips Connect is partnering with Velociti for installation and post deployment proactive technology monitoring and repair service support for their trailer telematics solutions.

Once a Phillips Connect customer has chosen the smart trailer solutions right for their operation, a designated Velociti Project Manager will arrange for the installation of the equipment when and where convenient for the customer.  All required components will be staged appropriately ensuring an efficient installation process by Velociti certified technicians.

The Phillips Connect equipment will begin continuously reporting data from all the systems being monitored, instantly identifying and sending alerts via the Phillips Connect dashboard of any problem that requires attention to keep the asset in a safe operating condition and reduce the chances of costly unscheduled downtime.  The new partnership will seamlessly integrate Phillips Connect asset health monitoring with Velociti’s VeloCare.

“Velociti has a long-standing history in supporting transportation technology and we are proud to partner with Phillips Connect who share a commitment to the industry and value forward thinking ideas,” remarked Ryan Powell, Senior Vice President of Velociti. “Our goal is to build mutually beneficial partnerships and deliver the best-in-class customer experience, both of which are achieved with this alliance.”

VeloCare proactively monitors a customized 24/7 system health portal for the Phillips Connect customer and if a problem is detected, immediately notifies a Velociti representative to arrange the required repair either remotely or to dispatch a technician to complete the service at the customers preferred location.

As a Phillips Connect partner, Velociti will manage parts inventory, process RMA’s and provide real-time visibility, and provide trailer maintenance based on real time visibility from Phillips Connect smart sensors.  This arrangement maximizes the ROI a fleet can expect from Phillips Connect health monitoring and frees the customer from having to react to technology failures.

“Phillips Connect has developed the best scalable smart trailer technology available but we realize that just knowing about a problem is only a first step,” commented Jim Epler, executive vice president of Phillips Connect.  “There needs to be a way to resolve the problem quickly and efficiently to maximize the benefits of the technology. Velociti has the experience, the systems and the skills to work that out and get the trailer back on the road in the most cost-effective way. I have been working with Velociti for almost 10 years and they have the best project managers and installation expertise I have ever worked with.   This is a great partnership for Phillips Connect because it offers another significant benefit to our customers.”
