MINNEAPOLIS — June 11, 2018 — PeopleNet® (www.peoplenetonline.com), a Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) Company and leading provider of fleet mobility technology, today announced that it received a 2018 Compass Award of Excellence from the Transportation Marketing & Sales Association (TMSA), which recognizes marketing and sales best practices by transportation and logistics companies.
PeopleNet was recognized for the creation of a virtual reality (VR) experience for its Video Intelligence solution, which consists of forward, side and rear-facing cameras to give fleets increased visibility of their trucks on the road. With the Video Intelligence solution, fleets have a neutral recording of events to potentially exonerate them in the event of an accident as well as identify coaching opportunities to help prevent accidents from occurring.
“The Video Intelligence solution is a highly-visual product and we wanted to find a unique way to convey the benefits of the platform,” said Jim Angel, Vice President, Video Intelligence Solutions for PeopleNet. “We are honored to be recognized by the TMSA for creating an interactive experience that explains the benefits of Video Intelligence for fleets and their drivers.”
Through the combination of a 360-degree video and a customized viewer, users are able to experience being inside of a truck driving down the road, bringing the Video Intelligence solution to life in an interactive way. PeopleNet has leveraged the VR experience as part of a multi-channel product awareness campaign, featuring it at industry trade shows, customer and prospect onsite visits and during media briefings.
PeopleNet’s Video Intelligence campaign was among more than 50 entries evaluated using TMSA’s 6-point proven scaling system to evaluate the strategy and execution of each entry. Total points earned determine whether a recipient receives an Award of Excellence (the highest level of the award) or an Award of Merit.
“The TMSA Compass Awards Program provides transportation and logistics companies with the opportunity to showcase their best work in marketing and communication strategies and sales performance,” said Brian Everett, CEO of TMSA. “In addition, recipients of this award earn recognition from their peers while they benchmark their work against others in the industry.”
All winners of the TMSA 2018 Compass Awards will be recognized at an awards banquet June 11 during the TMSA Logistics Marketing & Sales Conference at the Westin Cape Coral Resort at Marina Village near Fort Myers, FL.
