NASHVILLE. Here today at the TMW TransForum User Conference, Rand McNally announced its latest mobile fleet management integration with TMW Systems’ TMT maintenance software. This means data provided by Rand McNally’s line of mobile fleet management devices (including TPC 7600, TND 760 and HD 100) can be accessed through the TMW software.
Rand McNally said that will “allow fleets to proactively manage maintenance with real-time details, such as vehicle fault codes and location of the vehicle. Rapid response to a maintenance issue and management of a repair through to completion enables fleets to keep loads moving safely, with minimal downtime.”
“Rand McNally’s mobile fleet management devices provide critical information that enables our fleet customers to proactively manage their repair processes, maximize warranty recovery, and analyze repair trends across their fleet,” said Mike August, senior vp & gm of Asset Maintenance Software for TMW.
“This new integration with Rand McNally allows our joint customers to leverage mobile fleet management investments they have already made to address additional business challenges,” he added.
TMT Fleet Maintenance, an equipment and shop management software system, helps manage preventive maintenance schedules, parts inventory, fuel and tire usage, mechanic productivity and more.
Rand McNally explained that details from the Driver Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR), provided by Rand McNally’s devices, are used to create Inspection Tickets within the asset management software. An Inspection Ticket is tracked throughout the repair process, providing cost estimates, and generating warranty information.
Additionally, TMT Fleet Maintenance users may evaluate fuel and tire usage and repair as well as costs per mile throughout a fleet, based on odometer readings provided via the Rand McNally devices.
“Rand McNally’s mobile fleet management solutions provide a wealth of information that can be used to solve many everyday problems,” said Jim Rodi, senior vp, Mobile Communications Group, Rand McNally.
“This latest integration with our long-standing partner, TMW Systems, will benefit fleets looking to provide better service and profitability from their shop operations, along with more vehicle uptime," he added.
