ORLANDO, Fla. — Eaton Corporation has integrated its Fleet Resource Manager with TMW Systems TMWSuite Total Mail application.
The new integration capabilities allow fleet operators to provide drivers with real-time job updates and other information such as TMW dispatch and load information. Information is shared through easy-to-use, pre-formatted electronic forms, the company announced this week at the American Trucking Associations annual management conference.
Drivers will be able to view messages and respond to dispatchers and supervisors using form-based or free-form text messaging, directly from their vehicle using an in-cab display terminal. The new capabilities allow fleet managers to more efficiently and effectively manage their fleets through driver monitoring, implementing safety and productivity enhancements and improving fleet health and vehicle performance, Eaton officials announced.
The integration of Fleet Resource Manager with TMW represents a significant step forward in our efforts to position Eaton as the trucking industrys leading provider of telematic solutions, said Scott Adams, business unit manager for the Vehicle Solution Business Unit of Eaton. Now were looking forward to quickly demonstrating the newly developed capabilities with our customers throughout the months and years ahead.
The newly-integrated system is being tested by Falcon Transport out of Youngstown, Ohio, Eaton announced.
We are excited about the potential of an additional mobilecom partner with the added benefit of seamless integration with VORAD,” said Frank Castro, director of process development at Falcon Transport. “For our company and the industry at large, it is becoming increasingly important to have integrated telematics solutions.”
