Dilworth Attorney Links Nonprofit MANNA with splitsecnd’s Transportation Solution
November 16, 2017 (Philadelphia, PA) – Through Patrick Harrington’s efforts, split-second and MANNA have partnered on a beta test, wherein split-second provided MANNA, at no cost for three months, with a remarkable product for their delivery trucks that will allow MANNA’s operations staff to monitor and track daily meal deliveries in real-time for greater efficiencies and safety using split-second’s unique solution for delivery fleets. split-second’s flagship product plugs into a vehicle’s 12V outlet and provides automatic crash detection and response, roadside assistance, and driver telematics data without the need to pair with any other device (such as a driver’s cell phone) or access a vehicle’s critical computer network. According to Harrington, “providing legal services and strategic counsel at the nexus of commerce and community is a hallmark of Dilworth Paxson’s legacy, and it’s been very rewarding to connect split-second with a nonprofit like MANNA that has such a great reputation for helping individuals and families to thrive.”
After using the product in their fleet of seven delivery trucks over the past month, MANNA’s Eric Gantz is delighted with the split-second product and likes “that my Distribution Manager and I are able to see where the trucks are at any given moment.” He also confirmed that the drivers feel safer, due to the product’s emergency assistance features including location tracking, crash detection, a 24/7 emergency call center, and more. Gantz stated, “I feel certain that we will keep the product” after the three-month free-trial period expires in January 2018.
split-second, whose mission is “keeping drivers safe and connected,” is an end-to-end aftermarket connected car and truck solution that provides drivers in any vehicle safety and connectivity features, while equipping businesses with real-time information to help optimize their customer engagement, member relationships, and fleet management systems. split-second’s Mel Taylor noted that this partnership with MANNA is “the first of many to come in the mid-Atlantic region, with strategic plans to reach a broader national and international market in 2018 and beyond.”
MANNA is a non-profit organization that cooks and delivers nutritious, medically appropriate meals and provides nutrition counseling to neighbors who are battling life-threatening illnesses such as cancer, renal disease, and HIV/AIDS. Through their delivery of three meals a day, seven days a week, MANNA provides hope and nourishment to residents of the Greater Philadelphia area and Southern New Jersey.
