Ireland’s first tech scale-up success story Fleetmatics (now known as Verizon Connect) has been named by Berg Insights as the global leader in fleet management solutions. It’s a good news story for the 250 people who work with the company at its Networks Operations Centre here in south Dublin. Fleetmatics was co-founded by Peter Mitchell, who now serves as the CTO for the company globally.

Verizon Connect has been identified as the leading provider of fleet management solutions globally, according to the Fleet Management in the Americas – 8th Edition report
