Omnitracs, TMW Systems announce new integration capabilities

Omnitracs LLC, provider of fleet management solutions to transportation and logistics companies, and TMW Systems Inc., provider of enterprise software to transportation and logistics companies, announced new integration capabilities to further streamline fleet operations. Fleets utilizing TL2000 and Omnitracs’ thin client AS/400 integration for mobile computing platforms (MCPs) can now gain increased visibility into Omnitracs Portal features, as well as enhanced integration for Driver Workflow and ALK RouteSync navigation, supporting improved fleet management, customer service and profitability.

“Omnitracs is committed to delivering seamlessly integrated solutions that offer greater asset visibility and operational intelligence to address fleets’ most pressing safety, regulatory and productivity needs,” said Dan Speicher, chief technology officer at Omnitracs.

The following integrated solutions are now available:

  • Omnitracs Thin Client AS/400 Integration for TMW TL2000 Version R2014.0.01—enables TMW TL2000 IBM i customers to use all of the Omnitracs Portal features, including mapping, geofencing and global groups, through a more modern and robust user interface. By using thin client, TL2000 customers will require fewer computing resources and can reduce their software maintenance spend.
  • Omnitracs Driver Workflow to TMW TotalMail version 14.30—this new integration for Omnitracs Mobile Computing Platform 110 and 200 enhances operational efficiency through better management of load assignments. This integrated solution helps fleets deliver the right information to the right driver at the right time, helping to reduce expenses, improve productivity, and let drivers focus on safety and customer service.
  • Omnitracs/ALK RouteSync Integration to TMWSuite version 2014.13_07.0847 and higher via TotalMail version 14.20.82 (SP12)—provides seamless integration to TMWSuite customer fleets’ back office and onboard systems to ensure consistency between planned route and the navigation route in the cab. Drivers receive turn-by-turn directions via Omnitracs Mobile Computing Platform to better adhere to the planned route, improving route compliance, reducing non-revenue mileage, and creating operational consistency among variables such as planned versus actual miles, driver pay, billing, load planning and fuel tax reporting. Additionally, out of route mileage is reported immediately after every trip. Optionally, carriers may also configure the RouteSync system to utilize ExpertFuel version 8.3, also from TMW, to generate fuel-optimized routes for the driver, enabling increased fuel purchase savings and ease of use.

“At Covenant Transportation Group, we recognize the professional driving force as our number one resource. Because of this we are focused on improving driver experiences and easing daily frustrations that may be encountered in their daily tasks. Omnitracs Driver Workflow has been a benefit on both of these fronts,” said Doug Schrier, vice president of continuous improvement and internal audit at Covenant Transportation Group. “It has taken our circle of service communication from an extensive and confusing group of macros to a clear, concise checklist that the driver completes on each load. Ease of use has increased for the professional drivers and our in-house personnel receive the needed information in the correct order and at the right times. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.”

“TMW and Omnitracs have collaborated for many years, offering our shared customer base cutting-edge functionality,” said Ray West, vice president at TMW. “The new enhancements will provide customers the latest time-sensitive and actionable information when they need it to make appropriate decisions quickly.”
