The latest version of Omnitracs Roadnet Transportation Suite, v3.7.4, is here with several enhancements across FleetLoader, MobileCast, and Roadnet products. With improved visibility to driver activities, the latest release helps fleets plan, manage, and route trucks more efficiently.
Route divergence is common and often necessary for drivers, yet it is not always easy to account for. One of the biggest new functions in this version of Roadnet Transportation Suite is the ability for drivers to relocate their layovers on routes. Now, if an incident occurs that forces drivers to spend their layovers somewhere other than predetermined locations, they can relocate layovers on routes to match what actually happened in real life. This ensures that Roadnet is always up to date and maintains an accurate history of everywhere your drivers stayed, along with any expenses associated with those stays.
Another major new feature in v3.7.4 is the ability for MobileCast to now recognize compartments when suggesting a route. When this option is enabled, MobileCast will look to add a stop to a route, but will search only for compartments that are either empty, or contain a compatible product in them. This is vital because certain products cannot be mixed with non-compatible liquids and that could ruin the product, jeopardizing all the deliveries for the rest of the route.
Other exciting enhancements include:
- Roadnet – Three new user-defined fields have been added, giving users more space to provide important information for their drivers regarding stops or equipment involved in their routes.
- MobileCast – Drivers can now mark a stop as undeliverable on their routes and also indicate whether or not they will attempt to redeliver at a later point.
- FleetLoader – When enabled, FleetLoader will attempt to maximize the usage of lower and empty bays while minimizing the use of wheel and upper bays. This helps the drivers have to exert this work when loading/unloading as well as combats safety hazards if the driver takes a turn to sharply and the vehicle begins to lean dangerously to one side.
