Omnitracs offers new tracking solution powered by Roadnet

Aug. 13, 2014

Omnitracs has announced a new mobile workforce tracking application for smart devices powered by Roadnet. Omnitracs Tracking offers basic capabilities to help companies track the locations of their mobile workers throughout the day and get additional performance data to help make them safer and more productive.

“Every transportation company with a mobile workforce wants to know the location and key behaviors of their drivers,” said Dan Speicher, chief technology officer at Omnitracs. “Omnitracs Tracking powered by Roadnet enables companies that have not adopted a fully featured mobile fleet management solution to utilize their existing smart devices in order to track locations of mobile workers, improving safety, productivity and customer satisfaction.”

Benefits of Omnitracs Tracking include:

  • Location Tracking—By leveraging existing smart device GPS positioning technology, location tracking pinpoints drivers’ locations in real-time using satellite and street maps.  Fleet managers access this information through a web-based application, enabling them to provide customers with timely updates on the status of their delivery or service call.
  • Speed Tracking—The application monitors drivers’ speed throughout the day, allowing fleet managers to take prompt action to help preempt potential safety issues.
  • Exception Reporting—Users can predefine thresholds for maximum speed allowed, GPS gap, over road speed and stationary position time limits. Exception reporting helps to quickly identify driver behaviors that may lead to unsafe driving and reduced productivity.

“Omnitracs is committed to leveraging the expertise and capabilities of our business units to continuously bring value to our customers. Our newest basic tracking application will give companies the tools they need to better manage their mobile workforce and take fast, appropriate action to improve safety and productivity,” added Speicher. 

Omnitracs Tracking is available through Roadnet and Omnitracs’ resellers.
