Continuing a 20- plus-year relationship, Schneider National has announced it will deploy Qualcomm's Mobile Computing Platform 200 Series (MCP200) fleetwide no later than October 2010.
“Our long-term relationship with Qualcomm was founded on our shared commitment to technological innovation and leadership,” said Chris Lofgren, president & CEO. “Our fleetwide adoption of MCP200 further illustrates the success we have accomplished together and our mutual desire to continue to improve fleet management solutions for the … industry.”
The MCP200 offers training, customer information and back-office data to drivers, enhancing in-cab productivity, Qualcomm said. In 1988, Schneider was the first transportation company to implement Qualcomm's OmniTracs mobile information service.
Internet and multi-mode capability are included. Drivers will then be prompted for information needed to integrate with back-office systems.
“We are excited that Schneider, a recognized industry leader, has elected to renew their long-term relationship with Qualcomm by choosing our leading-edge platform, and we look forward to working with them as we drive the industry to new, enhanced levels of functionality and performance,” said Norm Ellis, vp of transportation and logistics sales and service for Qualcomm Enterprise Services.
