OMAHA, Neb. — Omaha-based REI announced the release today of its new ARMOR Cloud service to handle customers’ server management responsibilities. Intended for use by small- and large-fleet transportation customers, ARMOR Cloud augments impressive features offered by REI’s ARMOR Software Suite; an all-in-one wireless solution for fleet management.
“With ARMOR available in the cloud, we’ve made the adoption of these wireless technologies even easier,” said Dan Mancuso, REI’s software engineer manager. “Customers no longer need to worry about managing servers, software updates or uptime. REI handles it all from our headquarters. Traditionally, ARMOR is installed on customers’ on-premises servers and managed by their respective IT staffs. Now, transportation companies of any size may reap the benefits of ARMOR Cloud for remote ARMOR server management services.”
REI President Scott Hays added, “REI is especially proud to be able to offer this service to small- fleet companies. Many have very small IT staffs or no IT personnel at all. And the scalability and management of ARMOR data and assets have the potential to inundate customers. By allowing REI to maintain its fleet management software via ARMOR Cloud, they’ll realize substantial savings in server management and IT asset needs.”
ARMOR Cloud’s remote server management option adds to the robustness of REI’s ARMOR Software Suite. Among the Suite’s features are: automatic downloading of event-specific video, alert customization, vehicle tracking in real-time, driver performance monitoring, and automatic stop-arm violation reporting. The suite is typically integrated with a digital video recorder, high-definition color cameras, and accessories to form a complete surveillance system.
