Omnitracs Launches Integrated Telematics for Volvo Trucks

Omnitracs, LLC, a global pioneer of fleet management solutions to transportation and logistics companies, announced today the launch of Omnitracs Integrated Telematics (OIT). Meeting the needs of growing fleets or those that just need better data capture and analytics, Omnitracs Integrated Telematics provides real-time GPS and driver performance data, increasing visibility into asset location, driver behavior, and traffic conditions.

As part of a strategic partnership between Omnitracs and Volvo Trucks, this first release of the solution will be an available option on every new Volvo truck, and can also be retrofitted on older trucks equipped with telematics hardware. OIT is a web-based solution that will help Volvo customers gain valuable insights about driver behavior and asset location.

“Unlike traditional solutions, Omnitracs for Volvo Trucks’ software integrates with our original hardware, allowing Volvo customers to benefit from a best-in-class solution, without having to add to or modify our existing equipment,” said Conal Deedy, director of connected vehicle services at Volvo Trucks. “It’s giving fleets the real-time insights to better monitor assets and promote safe driving.”

In addition to tracking relative road speed and idling duration and cost, other key features of the Omnitracs Integrated Telematics solution include:

  • In-depth data capture and analysis of individual driver performance and historical and current GPS information
  • Vehicle usage monitoring, including information regarding activity during or after defined work hours, fuel costs, and route accountability
  • A “hardware-free” solution that is offered as part of the original equipment, allowing for optional integration with routing and dispatching
  • Detailed summary and exception reporting with real-time alerts via email or text message

“With OIT, our partners can leverage their existing OEM hardware and receive all the productivity and visibility benefits that come with data analytics,” said Rich Glasmann, vice president of OEM strategy, sales, and marketing at Omnitracs. “Additionally, OIT streamlines the process for managers trying to ensure road safety and drivers looking to improve their own efficiency.”
