EV Self-Service APIs
You can now share electric vehicle (EVs) specific data with third parties via Reveal’s self-service APIs. With this update, if you have started to electrify your fleet you can now work with third parties to enhance business processes associated with your EV fleet. Third parties will be able to pull three different types of data associated with EVs from the Reveal APIs:
- Charging: Shows when a compatible EV is charging or not charging
- Battery Percentage: Shows the battery percentage left in an electric vehicle
- Fuel Type: Shows whether a vehicle is electric, gasoline, or diesel powered
We have added another new Field Service Provider, WorkWave, as our latest Verizon Connect Reveal integrated partner. This integration allows those of you in the pest control and lawn care industries to better manage your vehicles, drivers, and field service management activities.

Unregulated Driving mode is now available
Unregulated Driving in Logbook allows your drivers to use non-commercial motor vehicles without counting towards HOS limits. When Unregulated Driving mode is on, HOS status is shown as On Duty (not driving).
Support case visibility improvements
There are now more ways to manage your support cases online. You can check case statuses and request to close your cases within the Customer Portal. We've made several updates to the functionality including more dates and times regarding status changes, allowing you to request to close a case (for duplicates or no longer needed) and add comments to attached files. Also, color coded case status makes it easier for you to review case status at a quick glance:
- “Awaiting your reply” status highlights case progress and customer next steps
- “Subject” column with search capabilities enables you to quickly find cases based on the subject of the case
- “Updated” column & in-case activity thread provides additional methods to track case progres
Lastly, we have enhanced basic user access where admins no longer need to grant access for basic users to see support cases.
Video coaching is now available
If you have Integrated Video, you can now assign coaching statuses, add coaching notes and track coaching progress over time. This will allow you to take a more proactive approach to safety initiatives by making it easier to identify areas for improvement. With the new Driver Profile, you will be able see a bird's-eye view of each driver and create personalized coaching plans for them based on video data.
Check out our recent webinar: 5 tips to coach drivers using Integrated Video. In this webinar recording, you can see prevailing industry trends, hear why coaching is so important for fleets today, and see how our solution can help to drive proactive safety improvements. We also have a new Quick Reference Guide version as well.
