PeopleNet-TMW integrations improve IDSC MatchAdvice and TMT Fleet Maintenance

Sept. 26, 2013

According to PeopleNet,  new integrations between its eDriver Logs and TMW Systems’ IDSC MatchAdvice optimizes  asset utilization and compliance for MatchAdvice
and incorporates fault code diagnostic data to streamline mechanic tasks into TMW’s TMT Fleet Maintenance .

Making the announcement at the annual TMW TransForum User Conference held this week in Anaheim, CA, PeopleNet senior vp of Tailored Solutions Randy Boyles said, “The integration with MatchAdvice combines productivity and compliance. Now TMW’s real-time power/load match optimization program also helps ensure HOS compliance by recommending drivers who have the available hours (through PeopleNet eDriver Logs) that are required to perform specific tasks.”

PeopleNet said it has strengthened its integration with TMT Fleet Maintenance–SQL, which now expands mechanic and driver capabilities with incorporated diagnostic information from PeopleNet Fault Codes.

Now, explained PeopleNet, mechanics can create repair orders within TMT using data from PeopleNet Fault Codes as part of the enhanced PeopleNet mobile communications integration within TMT, listing the default component, complaint and reason for the needed repair. Diagnostic information from the fault code is also listed in priority mechanical order in the repair comments section.

Also through the PeopleNet mobile communications integration within TMT, drivers can now inspect a tractor, multiple trailers and con-gear in a single eDVIR form that TMT can process, which  reduces data-entry time. Another time-saver lets drivers correct a miss-entered trailer number without having to fill out a new eDVIR form.

“By integrating fault code data and PeopleNet’s extensive eDVIR functionality more closely with TMT, our joint customers can better prioritize and streamline the repair order process, resulting in more efficient and cost effective shops,” said TMW executive vp Scott Vanselous.
