Orbcomm's new in-cab fleet management solution combines mobile technology from Samsung with the company’s electronic logging device and reporting and analytics from its FleetManager platform. The new solution lets fleets build a scalable productivity hub and "connected driver ecosystem" that can help retain drivers, boost customer satisfaction, and reduce costs with improved asset and resource utilization, according to the company.

“Together with Samsung, we are providing fleet managers with the comprehensive tools they need to improve the driving experience, increase customer satisfaction and reduce IT risks and admin costs,” said Chris MacDonald, senior vice president and general manager, Americas.

The truck management solution is available on Samsung's ruggedized Galaxy Tab Active2 and Galaxy Tab A 8.0 tablets, which are secured with Samsung Knox, the company’s defense-grade enterprise mobile security platform, to safeguard fleet data. Fleets can connect their drivers, schedules, assets, back-office and customers through one in-cab screen.

“Through collaboration with Orbcomm, this new truck management solution is easy to deploy and use, helping driving fleets stay connected to maximize efficiency, productivity and security across operations,” said Taher Behbehani, head of B2B Mobile at Samsung Electronics America.
