Rand McNally released its all-new Rand McNally Connect Web portal, enabling a single point for users to view all of the metrics, features, and services connected with Rand McNally’s TND 760 and TPC 7600 mobile fleet management products.

The Connect Web portal features a dashboard view that allows fleet managers to see trends and key performance indicators quickly, and then to drill into business issues via detailed reports.

Also included in the new portal release are the following features:

  • Dynamic mapping, which combines location intelligence with a visually based user interface, featuring a robust set of geo-spatial tools allowing for a “war room” like user experience.
  • A Geofence program that allows complex polygon “fences” to be drawn around customer locations, terminals, routes, and more, enabling alerts and reports on vehicle activity. 
  • A POI Manager, which saves important locations to the mapping interface, is ideal for viewing customer locations, terminals, and more.

In addition to the new portal, Rand McNally announced that it will be integrating a host of value-added services. These services will pull data from the Rand McNally mobile fleet management devices and provide insight into business challenges such as driver behavior/CSA scoring, fuel-tax reporting, and event analysis for improving training and safety.   

SpeedGauge is the first of these services to be fully integrated with the Connect Web portal. SpeedGauge, a provider of business intelligence and location-based analytics for the trucking and insurance industry, will use the GPS tracking information from the Rand McNally devices to identify the location, frequency, severity and duration of speeding events. 

Fleet managers subscribing to the service can create customized reports, considering context (“where exactly was the driver speeding?”) and analysis (“is this particular driver doing better or worse than last week?”).

The reports allow managers to address driver behavior, and to track improvements over time, while reducing the opportunity for additional citations when a driver is pulled over for speeding.
