Rand McNally expands asset tracking on the new Rand Platform

Rand McNally recently launched an expanded asset tracker lineup – all now available on the company’s flexible Rand Platform. Along with a solar-powered tracker and a battery-driven version, the company is now offering a wired option for customers who require constant location tracking with alerts/pings every two minutes.

The wired tracker, the TrueTrack-W110, connects and supplies pings every two-minutes as a standard offering. The industries’ average ping rates on wireless trackers can range anywhere from once every 30 minutes to once per day, depending upon need and situation.

All Rand McNally trackers are in stock and available for shipment.

The Rand platform

Earlier this year, Rand McNally announced that its Rand Video Telematics (RVT) solution was available on the company’s new platform. An API-first solution, the Rand Platform features technology that reduces risks, accelerates development, allowing for flexibility and quick innovation.

Fleets that use both asset tracking and the RVT package, which includes road-facing and cab-facing cameras, can view drivers, assets, and vehicles on the same screen, via a single sign on.

With the added features that the Rand Platform offers, customers have access to:

  • The platform’s innovative and easy drag-and-drop workflow tool that can be anything the customer needs – no need to select from prescribed metrics, reports, or alerts.
  • Enhanced reporting and dashboard views of advance fleet tracking features such as details from vehicle “breadcrumb” trails, geofences, and more.
  • The ability to create a freeform geofence unconstrained by “polygon” shapes.

More current products, as well as new Rand McNally solutions, will be integrated into the platform in coming months, simplifying vehicle, asset, and driver management for fleets.
