VANCOUVER, B.C. — AirIQ/eDispatch and Maddocks Systems have announced a partnership to assist commercial transport companies to more effectively manage their vehicle fleets.
Under the agreement, the two companies will integrate AirIQ’s location-based information services with Maddocks’ enterprise-wide fleet management software, thereby delivering a more powerful overall solution to the commercial transport industry.
Fleet managers using Maddocks TruckMate for Windows (TM4Win) software will now be able to utilize AirIQ’s services on the same desktop, at the same time, from the same screen.
“With AirIQ, Maddocks customers will have access to a wealth of information about their vehicle fleets, making it possible to react quickly, thereby increasing efficiency and profitability,” says Donald Simmonds, president and chief executive officer of AirIQ/eDispatch. “We are committed to creating partnerships with leading transport management solutions firms like Maddocks to further enhance the value of AirIQ’s services.”
The enhanced service will give transport firms that use TM4Win the capability to obtain and verify vehicle location and availability. With this information, the impact of delays or unexpected situations can be minimized by adjusting plans “on the fly.”
“The terrestrial based communication options provided by AirIQ will provide significant options to our U.S. and Canadian clients,” explains Bob Maddocks, president and chief executive officer of Maddocks Systems. “With the information regarding tractor/trailer positioning and messaging available over the Internet, integration will be fast, cost effective, and painless.”
