Heavy-duty: Despite likely inbound recession, factors continue to dull sharp truck downturn
In conjunction with Omnitracs Outlook 2015, Roadnet Technologies launched its Roadnet Anywhere Tracking application. The complimentary web-based workforce tracking application, Roadnet Anywhere Tracking, offers fleet managers an ‘always-on’ level of visibility into their drivers’ work day and real-time location through GPS positioning. Roadnet Anywhere Tracking does not require additional hardware, stated Omnitracs, and can be installed across a broad range of smart phones and tablets to give fleets visibility into drivers and assets in the field.
“The trucking industry is becoming increasingly mobile and fleets expect instant visibility into their drivers’ location and status of shipments,” said Cyndi Brandt, director of product marketing at Roadnet Technologies. “Roadnet Anywhere Tracking offers an easy-to-use mobile platform for vehicle tracking and driver performance analysis in real-time, answering the common question, ‘Where is my truck/driver/shipment?’ within seconds. It makes workforce tracking as easy as login and go.”
Roadnet Anywhere Tracking enables fleets to track their workforce to see how drivers are performing out on the road. Omnitracs noted that having an instant and clear view of location and performance data allows managers to quickly identify undesirable behaviors such as speeding, accruing extra miles, or making unplanned stops—and provide an opportunity for coaching to remedy it.
In addition to the workforce visibility, Roadnet Anywhere Tracking also includes several exceptions which can be configured to the fleet’s business model to define exception thresholds including max speed exceeded, GPS gap, late GPS, road speed exceeded, drivers out of contact, or stationary too long.
“With access to real-time, actionable insights from the Roadnet Anywhere Tracking application, fleets are in direct control of their vehicles while en route, which allows them to always be connected to their workforce, make better business decisions and improve customer service,” said Kevin Haugh, vice president and general manager of Roadnet Technologies. “We look forward to seeing the benefits our fleet customers will reap from our newest tracking application and believe that this offers them another innovative yet simple SaaS solution to help manage their mobile workers.”
