REI Launches New Service to Streamline Data Management

Posted on June 24, 2019

OMAHA, Neb. — REI has released its new ARMOR Cloud service to streamline data management for small and large transportation fleets.

The ARMOR Cloud augments the list of features offered by REI’s ARMOR software suite — an all-in-one wireless solution for fleet management, according to a news release from the company.

“REI is especially proud to be able to offer this service to small fleet companies,” said Scott Hays, president of REI. “Many have very small IT staffs or no IT personnel at all, and the scalability and management of ARMOR data and assets has the potential to inundate customers. By allowing REI to maintain their fleet management software via ARMOR Cloud, they’ll realize substantial savings in server management and IT asset needs.”

Dan Mancuso, REI’s software engineer manager, added that "customers will no longer need to worry about managing servers, software updates, or uptime."

The company's ARMOR Cloud remote server management option adds to the current features of the ARMOR software suite, including automatic downloading of event-specific video, alert customization, real-time vehicle tracking, driver performance monitoring, and automatic stop-arm violation reporting. The ARMOR suite can also be integrated with a digital video recorder, high-definition color cameras, and other accessories to form a complete surveillance system.
