Roadnet rolls out new business intelligence tool, expands telematics platform

DALLAS, Tex. – Roadnet Technologies introduced its new business intelligent tool, called Roadnet Insight today.

The new tool gives users accurate information across their entire enterprise including planning, dispatching, asset and vehicle tracking, proof-of-delivery and telematics.

Roadnet Insight links analytics to other Roadnet business application and takes advantage of advanced forms of data visualization.

“Fleets today are leveraging sophisticated technologies, many of which generate a vast amount of data. Collecting this disparate data culminates into a big data mess that is hard to decipher, not to mention resource intensive and expensive,” stated Kevin Haugh, vice president and general manager at Roadnet Technologies. “For customers, Insight reduces the burden of sifting through and interpreting complex data by filling in the missing link between analytics and operational applications and presenting data in a manner that is easier to consume. Insight’s interface allows users to see the connections between all parts of transportation management in order to make informed decisions that will impact their operations and, most importantly, their bottom line.”

Insight will be available in March 2015.

In addition, Roadnet also announced it has expanded its Roadnet Telematics platform this week.

The company claims with this expansion, customers can achieve new levels of visibility as well as the ability to mak adjustments to their fleets to improve safety and efficiency.

“Since joining with Omnitracs we have endeavored to address an even wider range of our customers’ needs.  With this release Roadnet customers have access to an even more comprehensive and integrated mobile fleet management platform, which supports a wide array of hand-held proof of delivery devices, basic tracking devices and telematics devices, each delivering information via a consolidated user interface,” notes Kevin Haugh, vice president and general manager of Roadnet Technologies. “The ability to combine routing and dispatching with telematics data allows fleet managers not only to orchestrate efficient route plans but also to see how drivers are performing against these plans, and at the same time monitor performance around behaviours such as  speeding, hard braking, rapid acceleration, idling and off hours movement of the vehicle.”

The new platform allows managers to quickly spot problem areas and begin training before an accident occurs.

“Our goal is to provide customers with the most flexible tools and insight needed to manage fleet operations in a simple and efficient manner,” said Cyndi Brandt, director of product marketing at Roadnet Technologies. “The new enhancements to Roadnet Telematics offer fleets one convenient platform that centralizes all of the data for better vehicle tracking and driver performance analysis, removing the hassle of switching between various applications.”
