Telematics and fleet management providers PeopleNet and TMW Systems previewed a number of multi-platform solutions and integrations at the 2016 in.sight User Conference in Nashville, Tenn.
Both PeopleNet and TMW are part of the Trimble international transportation and logistics division.
The new solutions included a driver-facing mobile app, a comprehensive journey management application and a universal, cloud-based solution to allow fleets to integrate PeopleNet data into their TMWSuite software. A new integration will also allow users of the web-based PeopleNet solution to simultaneously access critical information from their TMS software.
Connected solutions previewed included:
ConnectedDriver Mobility App: Provides custom, bi-directional messaging; dispatch and stop data; hours of service availability; driver pay; driver time-off; and other information. The cloud-based app, which has been available to drivers as a companion to the PeopleNet system, is now integrated with the TMWSuite platform.
TripInsight Solution: A cloud-based journey management solution that provides decision support and accurate ETA and PTA to the back office and driver. The application manages around multiple variables influencing trip outcome, including hours of service calculation, route restrictions, over-the-road purchasing and rest stops.
TMW FleetConneX: A cloud-based universal solution that enables fleets to integrate their mobile communication platforms into TMWSuite software without on-premise servers or custom coding. FleetConneX is now available for fleets using TMWSuite software in conjunction with the PeopleNet solution.
PeopleNet Fleet Manager SSO Integration: The companies now offer a single sign-on capability that enables dispatchers using TMWSuite software to view PeopleNet driver log hours within a unified interface. This information is displayed in the context of other important data related to driver management.
“Being able to simultaneously view business-critical information from multiple platforms helps every member of a transportation enterprise save time while making choices that contribute to improved business performance,” said David Wangler, president of TMW. “We are partnering with an ever expanding range of transportation businesses to collect and analyze operational data, define industry benchmarks and track emerging trends that can impact productivity and competitiveness.”
