Platform Science, Werner Enterprises to deploy driver technology solutions

Sept. 17, 2020
Werner plans to roll out its new telematics device, EDGE Connect, to all drivers by Q1 2021.

Platform Science and Werner Enterprises (Werner) have partnered to equip Werner’s fleet of nearly 8,000 trucks with the necessary tools to easily deploy new applications and services that support its business needs, meet evolving compliance requirements and enhance the overall driver experience.

"Through our innovation initiative, Werner EDGE, our drivers [stay] efficient and safe on the road," said Danny Lilley, VP of fleet systems and technology at Werner. "Incorporating Platform Science into our new tablet-based telematics solution allows us to provide a smart workflow, reduce manual data entry and improve navigation and safety features, an important step in furthering our company's unwavering commitment to our drivers and moving the industry forward."

Through this partnership, Werner trucks will be outfitted with Platform Science's full suite of products including its innovative catalogue of applications and third-party app marketplace. The company's open platform will enable Werner to easily customize and scale its in-cabin and backend experiences, ensuring an unprecedented level of flexibility and control over its technologies. 

"As one of the largest and most progressive enterprise fleets in the nation and a pioneer of electronic logs, Werner has consistently been a leader in developing and implementing cutting-edge technologies to improve its fleet operations and keep America moving," said Jake Fields, co-founder and CTO of Platform Science. "We worked closely with the Werner team, honing in on their fleet's unique needs and provided them with the necessary tools to execute their operations easily and efficiently, while seamlessly controlling all of their technologies on one easy-to-use interface."
