Microlise and Skywire tie-up to benefit Australian fleets
Skywire, which designs, deploys, manages and supports mobility systems in rugged environments, said the Microlise portfolio complemented its offering and would bring real value for its transport, logistics and warehousing customers.
“This partnership makes a lot of sense. Microlise offers industry-leading telematics, journey management and proof of delivery solutions, with drivers often requiring enterprise mobility devices as an in-cab rugged terminal. As a Premier Partner of Zebra Technologies here in Australia many of our customers are already using Zebra devices,” said James Shepherd CEO Skywire.
Luke Olsen, director of sales for Asia Pacific, Microlise, said the partnership would help enhance its presence to fleets in the region. The company’s solution suite covers four broad areas – telematics, safety compliance, journey management and proof of delivery – helping fleets to reduce fuel consumption, maximise vehicle utilisation, improve safety and provides real-time visibility of the fleet against schedule.
He added: “Skywire has many customers operating within the supply chain and logistics Industry, a sector our products have been specifically developed to serve. As a new entrant in the APAC market we are committed to growing in the region. Skywire will act as an ambassador, helping to get our product in front of more potential customers.”
