TMW Systems Certifies Integration with Rand McNally's Mobile Communications Devices
"Rand McNally Connect" Allows Seamless Interface with TMWSuite and TL2000 products
SKOKIE, Ill., June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Rand McNally today announced that its mobile communication systems are now certified and integrated with two applications from TMW Systems, Inc. As a result, fleets that use TMWSuite® or TL2000® now can pull data from Rand McNally 's TND™ 760 and TruckPC in-cab devices through their TMW products.
" Rand McNally has been a TMW Business Alliance Partner for decades," said Scott Vanselous , CMO of TMW Systems. "By certifying integration with Rand McNally 's mobile communication and management systems, our customers have ready access to a full suite of Rand McNally solutions."
One customer is Freight Exchange of North America (F/X), a Chicago-based, North American full truckload carrier that operates nearly 300 power units from its terminals in Southern California, El Paso, Dallas, and Chicago. F/X has integrated information from Rand McNally 's TND™ 760 (Fleet Edition) with TMWSuite. For F/X, the integration allows for the use of real-time information from the in-cab device to dispatch trucks, receive automatic arrival and departure notification, match loads with available drivers, and track the progress of the driver's daily workflow.
"TMWSuite has been a tremendously successful tool to manage our operation. Rand McNally 's integration allows us to leverage our investment even further," said Fred Alaimo , V.P. of Operations at F/X. "The TND™ 760 offered more functionality than other solutions we reviewed, and it's priced significantly more competitively. The icing on the cake is that the drivers love the new device and have been quick to adopt and use the technology, making everybody a winner."
The TMW certified integration pulls critical data from Rand McNally 's in-cab systems via Rand McNally Connect software. The data provided by Rand McNally 's devices enable TMW products to deliver the following:
- Automated and standardized driver daily workflows;
- Notification of vehicle arrival and departure via Rand McNally 's automated geofencing capability;
- Integrated turn-by-turn navigation, provided by Rand McNally 's IntelliRoute® TND™ GPS software;
- Automatically linked information – such as bill of lading numbers – from one form to another further simplifying the driver experience;
- Integrated Hours of Service information into load planning and dispatching operations.
"Having a certified solution with TMW's industry-leading enterprise transportation management systems enables customers to confidently integrate the benefits of mobile communication, award winning navigation and fleet management," explained Dave Muscatel, CEO of Rand McNally . "In particular, our TND™ 760 Fleet Edition device offers fast ROI recognition due to its cost effectiveness, ease of use and driver acceptance."
