Omnitracs Expands Web Browsing Options with New Terrestrial Browsing App
August 13, 2013 - Products
Omnitracs Inc. launched a Terrestrial Browsing application for its Mobile Computing Platform 110 and 200 (MCP110 and MCP200). To complement Omnitracs’ existing Open Wi-Fi offering, Terrestrial Browsing helps fleets further streamline business operations and improve driver productivity and satisfaction. With Terrestrial Browsing, drivers can access the Internet via Omnitracs’ MCP Web browser and terrestrial network, avoiding “offline” periods associated with no Wi-Fi connectivity.
While applicable for fleets of all profiles and sizes, because the application enables browsing anywhere the MCP has terrestrial coverage, Terrestrial Browsing is ideal for long-haul drivers that need Internet access, regardless of Wi-Fi accessibility.
Standard terrestrial networks provide reliable connectivity for drivers removed from a central location—such as a truck stop or distribution center, where Wi-Fi might be available—for enhanced access to information and improved quality of life.
Terrestrial Browsing lets fleets designate a list of approved websites to help control costs. The application intelligently takes into account whether a driver is connected via a terrestrial or Wi-Fi network, ensuring the most economical access to the company portal and other critical office functions that help improve driver productivity.
Additionally, to ensure fleets can manage costs effectively, Omnitracs offers a choice of data plans to support not only Terrestrial Browsing, but also other key mobile office applications including In-Cab Scanning and Media Manager.
