FARMINGDALE, N.Y. and MARKHAM, Ontario, Dec 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Robocom Systems International announced today the launch of the latest version of their R-Mobile System for real time communication between drivers and dispatchers.
R-Mobile is part of Robocom's state-of-the-art Centerline Transportation Management System. Centerline is a suite of business solutions designed for Less-Than-Load (LTL) and Truck Load (TL) businesses. The Dispatch module in Centerline communicates with the newest technologies for mobile users, across a cellular data backbone. A GPS card in the mobile device sends frequent location updates to the Centerline Dispatcher and the position of every vehicle in the fleet is tracked on a map on the Dispatcher's screen. R-Mobile uses a new Web Server along with a series of intuitive functions on the mobile device, all developed by Robocom, eliminating the need for expensive equipment and satellite communications.
Companies using R-Mobile have already reported a significant reduction in overall operating costs. R-Mobile improves driver and dispatcher productivity, reduces fuel costs, improves customer service and increases revenue.
Fred Radcliffe, President of Robocom, stated "our transportation customers, both private fleet operators and LTL carriers have contributed to the overall design of R-Mobile. The result of this collaboration is software that takes full advantage of the significant changes in mobile computing over the past year and provides functions that are meaningful and easy to use. We are experiencing tremendous interest in this exciting new product."
R-Mobile is the first in a series of new modules being developed by Robocom to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of trucking companies. Future releases of Centerline will expand R-Mobile functions to include delivery and pickup data, signature capture, wireless cross-dock functions and provide expanded web access to shipment data.
