Here at Omnitracs, we’re finishing up our busy fall tradeshow season with CCJ’s Fall Symposium next week, December 2-4, in Scottsdale, Arizona. Our team looks forward to this event each year, as CCJ brings the industry’s top experts and leading fleet executives together to learn, share insights and network with peers.
There are certain times of the year that are particularly special to all of us at Omnitracs, LLC and as we gear up for the holiday season, we look forward to our annual involvement with Wreaths Across America (WAA). For four years, Omnitracs has helped WAA carry out its mission to coordinate wreath laying ceremonies at the graves of fallen soldiers across the nation. This year, thanks to a generous contribution from Qualcomm, Omnitracs will once again help WAA meet its goal to deliver more than 500,000 wreaths to 900 locations. On December 14, National Wreaths Across America Day, Omnitracs employees and other volunteers will lay remembrance wreaths of evergreen branches and a red bow on headstones at Miramar National Cemetery and Fort Rosecrans Cemetery in San Diego, symbolizing our gratitude for the sacrifice made by the men and women of our country’s armed forces.
Vista Equity Partners, LLC today announced it has completed its acquisition of Omnitracs, Inc., formerly a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated. In conjunction with this announcement, Omnitracs announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Roadnet Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of fleet management software solutions for private fleets.
Have you ever wondered what the Omnitracs team does behind the scenes? In between developing new technology to help shape the future of the transportation industry, launching new products and solutions to help customers do more with less, and supporting industry and customer events, we work hard at becoming better at what we do. In fact, that is exactly the goal the Omnitracs team was focused on when we came together in San Diego this month for the Omnitracs annual training conference. The event is always one that employees look forward to—employees from across the country come together for a great week filled with team building activities, educational sessions, and opportunities to reconnect as a larger group.
Today, more and more fleets are looking for ways to reduce fuel consumption in order to lower costs and maximize profitably. Fuel is one of the largest drains on a fleet’s bottom line, especially with today’s fluctuating fuel prices and taxes. To keep fuel costs down, you must identify and correct the leading causes of high fuel consumption. To help you do this, we’ve developed a useful guide where we share seven tips on how to improve fuel efficiency. Inside the guide, we explore different driver habits that cause unnecessary fuel consumption, like idling and taking inefficient routes, and provide suggestions on how your fleet can stop wasting fuel and start saving money!
As you may know, Omnitracs recently reached an exciting milestone, our 25th anniversary of transportation industry leadership. We invite you to take a look at a short video that showcases highlights of our history, as well as a sampling of the marvelous employees and customers that make Omnitracs so successful.
During a recent interview with Red Eye Radio at the 2013 ATA Management Conference & Exhibition, we spoke to host Eric Harley about a number of different technology offerings that Omnitracs provides for carriers—both small and large. Over the past 25 years, Omnitracs has worked hard to develop a suite of technology solutions that enable fleet managers to have good conversations with their drivers while they’re out on the road, while also ensuring fleet managers have visibility into the status of their loads and routes in near real-time. To that end, Omnitracs recently launched its new Virtual Load View application at this year’s ATA event. Virtual Load View provides enhanced visibility into the supply chain and helps carriers achieve their operational goals by improving resource allocation and planning.
The Omnitracs team had a great time last week at ATA’s Annual Management Conference and Exhibition in Orlando, Florida. One of the highlights was our celebration of Omnitracs’ 25th anniversary during the Expo on Monday, Oct. 21. Our team welcomed many of the more than 1,800 conference attendees with smiles, celebratory champagne and fresh pastries as they entered the exhibit hall that morning. I personally talked to over 50 booth visitors – some of whom were longtime Omnitracs customers or represented fleets interested in exploring how to increase their safety and/or productivity with our fleet management solutions.
The American Trucking Associations’ team, once again, did an outstanding job of planning and executing the annual Management Conference and Exhibition. My colleagues and I found the educational sessions to be very worthwhile and, of course, we thoroughly enjoyed seeing so many of our customers and friends on the tradeshow floor and throughout the conference. We were thrilled that so many folks stopped by our booth on Monday, October 21to help us celebrate 25 years of serving the transportation and logistics industry. This icing on the cake was learning that Omnitracs was one of four recipients of the 2013 American Trucking Associations (ATA) “Mike Russell ‘Good Stuff’ Image Award.”
According to Department of Transportation statistics, 273,000 large trucks were involved in traffic collisions in 2011. This fact hits close to home for Omnitracs, as we strive to provide fleets with technology solutions that help drivers and managers improve safety and prevent accidents. In light of these statistics, and amidst mounting pressure to maintain on-time delivery with lean operations, fleets are challenged more than ever before to reduce costly accidents and keep drivers safe. To mitigate these pressures, we announced at the annual ATA Management Conference and Exhibition in Orlando, the enhancement of our Critical Event Reporting (CER) application which includes the Over Speed Events add-on and the introduction of an additional provider of integrated Following Time Violation (FTV) and Forward Collision Warning (FCW) add-ons.
