Based on its recent analysis of the fleet optimization and analytics market for the oil and gas industry, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Storm Telematics (Storm) with the 2016 North America Frost & Sullivan Award for Customer Value Leadership. Storm has uniquely integrated traditional telematics with advanced radio frequency identification (RFID) to create a proprietary fleet and analytics solution suite comprising Smart-vu Pro, Smartvu TagNet, and Smartvu Analytics. Unlike competing solutions that largely gather telematics data, Storm’s solutions intuitively accumulate data sets that are relevant to customers’ respective businesses, focused on those key performance indicators that are of relevance to the organization.
“By fusing telematics data and RFID technology into an analytics engine, Storm is able to convert data into actionable intelligence and generate quantifiable savings,” said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst, Gokulnath Raghavan. “It analyzes massive volumes of data from multiple sources and formats, and turns them into clear, highly granular information so the client can measure the true cost of inefficiency.”
Storm believes that in order to deliver best-in-class customer service, it is important to first create a vast data pool. Performing algorithm-based analytics of that data pool allows customers to gain insights into the current state of their assets, as well as the benefits that they will enjoy by optimizing fleet and asset performance. The cost of inefficiency is pushed to a driver app that presents rankings, scorecards, compliance, and the true cost of inefficiency, giving the operator first-hand information about areas that need to be addressed.
In addition to an overview of assets in an enterprise fleet, Storm provides advanced descriptive, diagnostic, predictive, and prescriptive analytics. While descriptive analytics offer fleet managers a detailed understanding of issues that may occur, diagnostic analytics enable customers to comprehend the reason behind the issue’s occurrence. Predictive and prescriptive analytics, meanwhile, preemptively inform customers about the consequences of pending incidents and the measures that can be taken to avoid them.
“With a team of mathematicians, statisticians, and data visualization specialists, Storm creates distinct, flexible algorithms that match each customer’s needs, while simultaneously collecting telematics data,” noted Raghavan. “Unlike its competitors that require clients to sign long-term contracts, Storm does not have contract terms, and its solutions have the ability to seamlessly integrate with existing back-end application program interfaces.”
To ensure that customers receive a truly superior ownership experience, Storm conducts quarterly customer surveys for feedback on ways to improve its products and functionalities. The company has dedicated implementation specialists for every customer account, facilitating prompt feedback and relevant fleet information.
Storm’s strategy of delivering the best value for the money has opened many doors in the North American fleet optimization and analytics market. The company’s 9-year partnership with Canadian Natural Resources has positioned it to expand its customer base in the energy sector.
Frost & Sullivan is excited to recognize Storm Telematics for its market-leading focus on enhancing customer experience and return on investment for its products in the fleet optimization and analytics market.
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in implementing strategies that proactively create value for its customers with a focus on improving the return on the investment that customers make in its services or products. The award recognizes the company's inordinate focus on enhancing the value that its customers receive, beyond simply good customer service, leading to improved customer retention and ultimately customer base expansion.
