Omnitracs Expands Telematics Portfolio to Make Flagship Tracking and Compliance Solutions Beneficial to Fleets of All Sizes, in a Wider Range of Industries

Omnitracs, LLC, the global pioneer of fleet management solutions to transportation and logistics companies, today announced that two flagship solutions for scalable, easy-to-deploy telematics and compliance have new capabilities that can now benefit a wider number of industries using a variety of vehicle classes, to allow fleets of all sizes to realize greater benefits from real-time asset tracking and data-based fleet visibility. 

Geared especially toward short-haul fleets, Omnitracs Roadnet Telematics provides company fleet managers a big picture view that allows them to optimize fuel consumption, reduce maintenance costs, maximize productivity and identify under-utilized assets, reducing costs associated with out-of-service vehicles by up to 25%. Its unique accelerometer technology offers highly sensitive detection of maneuvers in any direction, including high speed, harsh breaking, rapid acceleration, and even backing into a loading dock. In-cab alarms alert drivers to risky driving behaviors, providing them with real-time feedback that allows them to immediately address the practices that put them at risk. Omnitracs Roadnet Telematics is offered as a bundle that includes hardware, training, and data. Once fleets are ready for even more productivity, Omnitracs provides seamless integration to Omnitracs Roadnet Telematics with Omnitracs Roadnet Anywhere, its industry leading route planning, dispatching, and delivery solution, as well.

For companies and carriers with smaller fleets looking to combine both telematics and compliance solutions, the Omnitracs XRS platform helps level the playing field by enabling the use of smartphones and tablets to quickly and inexpensively equip their fleets with the applications and data previously available only to the largest carriers. The “plug-and-play” in-cab relay device provides diagnostic and positioning data via Bluetooth to the driver’s Android or Windows Mobile device. With the ability to leverage mobile technology, the powerful XRS compliance solution provides fleet managers with real-time intelligence, while minimizing drivers’ time spent on tracking activities. Further, Omnitracs XRS offers customizable plans with add-on options for those with more complex performance and monitoring needs: 

  • Support for both HOS and non-HOS driver time tracking 
  • Automated, compliant Driver Vehicle Inspection Reports and International Fuel Tax Agreement reporting 
  • Critical Event Reporting, Trip Management and Fault Monitoring 

“Often these solutions have been seen as being geared for only larger carriers that could deploy and support these critical intelligence-based decision-making tools,” said Kevin Haugh, Chief Strategy and Product Officer. “Omnitracs’ expanded telematics portfolio offers tailored plans and the simplicity of a single device for each vehicle. Now, telematics is accessible whether you’re a large carrier or foodservice business in need of compliance — or a small landscaping business in need of track and trace capabilities that can scale up when the company grows.” 

Omnitracs Roadnet Telematics and Omnitracs XRS are customizable to any fleet size, and are available today.
