Qualcomm Inc. today announced the availability of OmniOne, a low-cost transportation application for digital mobile phones, and Qtracks/Web, a Web-based interface to the OmniTRACS and OmniExpress mobile communications systems.
OmniOne will provide trucking companies, affiliate fleets and subcontractors a portable communications tool that enables drivers and dispatchers to receive and send load assignments, status updates and other information. The OmniOne application is designed to run on Qualcomm’s Binary Runtime Environment for Wireless (BREW) platform.
"OmniOne is a high-value tool that empowers owner-operators and affiliate fleets to work more productively while on the road," said Chris Wolfe, president of Qualcomm Wireless Business Solutions. Wolfe said more than 80% of owner-operators rely primarily on public pay telephones and personal mobile phones to receive their work assignments and to report status to their customers.
OmniOne, which seamlessly integrates with current Qualcomm OmniTracs and OmniExpress systems, was designed to eliminate that process while allowing drivers and logistics companies to communicate information with greater efficiency.
Qtracks/Web is a Web-based interface to the OmniTracs and OmniExpress mobile communications systems that helps trucking companies manage two-way data communication with their fleet. The secure Web-based product allows companies to access their fleet data through a Web browser and view current and historical vehicle locations, and display them on a scalable, street-level map.
Qtracks/Web is available in customer-hosted and Qualcomm-hosted versions.
