RoadRunner is a complete hardware/software truck dispatch package that uses Nettech middleware to communicate with the TrackYourTruck.com Web site. Using this service, customers can automatically track the progress of their deliveries online.
The Palm IIIx organizers used by RoadRunner offer a high-quality display and signature-capture capability that allows for "paperless ticketing," which saves customers the expense of multi-copy ticketing and billing.
Customers can also create their own messages without costly programming and custom software. The system uses Airlink Pinpoint radio modems to communicate over Cellular Digital Packet Data (CDPD) networks.
The RoadRunner system is expected to be generally available in March 2000.
