Vodafone is helping Huawei enhance the efficiency of their transport operations in Qatar with Vodafone’s Internet of Things (IoT) Fleet Management service.

Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology provider, serves a multitude of large enterprise customers including Vodafone across Qatar which requires a sizeable fleet of vehicles that are constantly on the move across various parts of the country. To address Huawei’s business needs and in order to better serve customers whilst ensuring the safety of their employees and assets, Vodafone provided an end-to end Fleet Management solution that enables the delivery of real-time information such as traffic data, vehicle location, driver speeds, fuel consumption and employee work-time. 

“We’re proud that Huawei looked to Vodafone to increase their operational efficiency. Our global expertise in IoT solutions and in delivering fleet management services is eliminating the challenges many companies in Qatar face in managing their fleet of vehicles,” said Mahmud Awad, Chief Business Officer, Vodafone Qatar. “As a leading technology company, we are always looking to partner with organisations that can provide us with innovative solutions to enhance all aspects of our business. Vodafone’s Fleet Management service is one such advanced capability which helps us to improve our productivity, at the same time providing enhanced safety as well as cost efficiencies,” said Zong Yan, CEO, Huawei Qatar.

Vodafone was recently named by Gartner as a worldwide Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Managed Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Services, Worldwide for the fourth consecutive year. Vodafone’s latest IoT Barometer Report  shows that IoT projects are getting bigger with the number of large scale projects doubling in the last year and 61% of all companies agreeing that digital transformation is impossible without IoT.
