SKOKIE, Ill., Sept. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Rand McNally and TMW Systems® today announced the availability of an integration between Rand McNally's TPC 7600 and TND™ 760 mobile fleet solutions and TMW Systems Innovative release R9.5 transportation management software. The Innovative software includes Innovative Access and Access Plus® SaaS platforms as well as Innovative IES® for on-premise IBM i Systems.
Rand McNally, a long-standing technology partner of TMW Systems, has existing integrations with TMW Systems® TruckMate®, TMWSuite® and TL2000® transportation management software products. TMW Systems is the leading provider of transportation management solutions while Rand McNally is a leader in truck routing, navigation and mobile solutions.
"Now we can accommodate any customer on any platform that TMW offers. Our ease of integration, along with the advantageous pricing and easy installation of our products, will make it easier than ever for fleets to generate the savings and efficiencies that mobile communications offers. In addition, fleets will be well positioned for the upcoming EOBR mandate," said Dave Muscatel, CEO of Rand McNally.
The Innovative IES® integration, enabled by Rand McNally's Connect web portal and IBM® i middleware software, enables:
- Text message communication pushed to the in-cab device from operations, reducing the need for telephone communication between dispatch and truck
- Data on each vehicle's position within operations, to provide customer service, aid scheduling and tracking of out-of-route miles
- Circle of Service form messaging for immediate communication of task completion and next steps
- Tracking miles in real-time for fuel tax calculations, customer billing, and operator settlements
"The new integration with Rand McNally's products creates additional options for our customers to incorporate valuable mobile communications in their business. The critical information that moves between our Innovative IES system and the in-cab devices from Rand McNally can help carriers to improve driver and asset utilization, and streamline operations," said Jennifer McQuiston, Director, Partner Management, TMW Systems.
Despite its compact design and affordable price, the TND™ 760 features a broad array of capabilities including fleet communications via email, driver and vehicle performance monitoring, electronic hours of service (HOS) compliance, and truck-specific navigation. Information on fleet activity is managed via Rand McNally's Connect web-based portal. The TPC 7600 offers a more robust enterprise platform with added benefits of scanning and tri-mode communication.
