This blog is an adaptation of a presentation delivered at Omnitracs Outlook 2016 by Product Managers Laura Lohrke and Matt Johnson. 

Did prior commitments prevent you from attending Omnitracs Outlook 2016? Did you join us in Dallas, but have to skip the session on “leveraging always-on, always-connected smartphone technology” focused on improving fleet operations? Not to worry — we’ve recapped some of the key take-aways here, to help ensure you’re up to speed on the latest options for incorporating this ubiquitous technology to improve productivity, efficiency and compliance.

The numbers don’t lie. There are more than 26 billion mobile devices worldwide. The Internet of Things represents a $19 Trillion—with a “T”—technology sector. With these combined stats, we can assume that these realities will soon affect even more of our daily activities than they do today. The commercial trucking industry is no exception.

Connected smart devices can simplify fleet operations, serving to extend the value of onboard telematics systems to improve the driver experience and retention, streamline out-of-cab activities, and enhance overall productivity. However, integrating mobile devices into fleet operations can be a complex undertaking—just think about the multitude of device options, technology trade-offs, data plan options, and more.

Omnitracs’ Enterprise Services’ mobile solution suite simplifies things by delivering on the promise of always-on, always-connected smartphone technology today. From offline data capture and access to trips and workflow, pictures, documents, signature capture, barcode scanning, OS&D, and more, mobile solutions streamline productivity in ways never before imagined.

With availability slated for May 2016 on the MCP50 and Q1 2017 on the Integrated Vehicle Gateway, Omnitracs Mobile Solution is a straightforward answer to a complicated set of fleet challenges.  To learn more about our comprehensive solutions for fleets of all sizes and operational profiles, visit
