Omintracs expands telematics portfolio

by Truck News

DALLAS, Texas — Omnitracs revealed two new telematics solutions today that it says is beneficial to fleets of all sizes.

Geared especially toward short-haul fleets, the Omnitracs Roadnet Telematics provides company fleet managers a big picture view that allows them to optimize fuel consumption, reduce maintenance costs, maximize productivity and identify under-utilized assets, reducing costs associated with out-of-service vehicles by up to 25%. It is offered as a bundle that includes hardware, training, and data.

As well, the new Omnitracs XRS  is for companies and carriers with smaller fleets looking to combine both telematics and compliance solutions. The company says it helps level the playing field by enabling the use of smartphones and tablets to quickly and inexpensively equip their fleets with the applications and data.

“Often these solutions have been seen as being geared for only larger carriers that could deploy and support these critical intelligence-based decision-making tools,” said Kevin Haugh, chief strategy and product officer. “Omnitracs’ expanded telematics portfolio offers tailored plans and the simplicity of a single device for each vehicle. Now, telematics is accessible whether you’re a large carrier or foodservice business in need of compliance — or a small landscaping business in need of track and trace capabilities that can scale up when the company grows.”

Both the Omnitracs Roadnet Telematics and Omnitracs XRS are available today.

  • Good thing Vista Equity is starting to market the companies they bought two plus years ago. These two offerings are not new, just the retread of the same old solutions.

    Omnitracs like Apple is a hardware company offering software as a second thought.
