TouchStar, a mobile computing and field force automation solution provider, is teaming with Wireless Matrix Corp. to develop an integrated, real time data management solution for mobile-workforce service and delivery fleets.
The companies will develop their products to be compatible and provide a solution for firms operating in the petrochemical and field service industries.
The solution will integrate Wireless Matrix’s real-time vehicle based communications hardware, and its FleetOutlook mobile resource management application with TouchStar’s FuelWare applications. The incorporation of Wireless Matrix’s vehicle mapping and telemetry functions through FleetOutlook and TouchStar’s workforce and delivery data management programs creates a platform that supports increased driver productivity, asset and inventory management, data accuracy and improved customer service, TouchStar said.
The combined solution will provide immediate availability of operational data so customers can improve delivery times and routes, reduce operating, administrative and data entry costs, meet critical deadlines, and ensure the safety of their drivers, equipment and transported product, TouchStar said.
“Both TouchStar and Wireless Matrix bring innovative practices and products to the partnership,” said TouchStar vp of sales & marketing David Krapff. “TouchStar’s automation and integration platforms and Wireless Matrix’s real time communications systems create best practice deliverables and provide our customers the ultimate competitive edge.”
“Together, Wireless Matrix and TouchStar present complimentary strengths that offer service and delivery fleets a strong value proposition,” said J. Richard Carlson, president & CEO of Wireless Matrix. “Creating a targeted solution for the Petrochemical and Field Service distribution sectors is a great opportunity for us. We look forward to working with TouchStar on this and future endeavors.”
