Teletrac Expands Integration With TMW Systems and TruckMate Dispatch Software

GARDEN GROVE, Calif., Feb. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Teletrac, a leading provider of advanced fleet management solutions for the trucking sector, today announced availability of an interface between its award-winning Fleet Director™ GPS and vehicle tracking solutions and TruckMate®, an enterprise transportation software solution from TMW Systems.  The interface provides customers using both systems with seamless and reliable 2-way communications between dispatchers and drivers, along with real-time GPS-based location, motion and mileage data.  This integration enables a wide range of real-time information to be directly transmitted to the cab, with details specific to individual jobs.   Knowing the position of drivers and loads is not only essential for efficient load planning, it can be used to provide accurate and seamless shipment updates back to customers.  Teletrac also integrates with TMW Systems® TMWSuite transportation management software.

With Fleet Director's new TruckMate® interface, a wide range of real-time information is transmitted directly to the cab, with details specific to individual jobs.  For example, load offers and all associated data created in TruckMate can be sent directly to the driver via Teletrac Fleet Director without having to re-enter data — a significant time-saver that also reduces errors.  Drivers using Fleet Director can instantly confirm arrivals, departures and load details including weight, actual quantity, delivery notes and any other data required by TruckMate, either by inbound canned, form-based, or free-form messages. These messages are presented within TruckMate so that the dispatcher can update all documentation such as freight bills.

The ability to visibly track every minute and mile of the delivery cycle enables dispatchers to proactively allocate resources to avoid problems or delays and increase utilization.  Every update from the driver is accompanied by GPS position, mileage and movement data, which means that dispatchers and customers always know the "What, When & Where" about consignments in real-time.

About Fleet Director and Teletrac

Already proven and trusted by more than 10,000 fleets of all sizes and tracking more than 200,000 vehicles in 75 countries, Fleet Director saves fleet owners time, money, and reduces their carbon footprint.

Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...

As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility.

The benefits of automated cloud deployments for speed, reliability and security are undeniable. The cornerstone of this approach, immutable deployment, promotes the idea of continuously rolling safe, stable images instead of trying to keep up with managing a fixed pool of virtual or physical machines.

Serverless Computing or Functions as a Service (FaaS) is gaining momentum. Amazon is fueling the innovation by expanding Lambda to edge devices and content distribution network. IBM, Microsoft, and Google have their own FaaS offerings in the public cloud. There are over half-a-dozen open source serverless projects that are getting the attention of developers.
If you are part of the cloud development community, you certainly know about “serverless computing,” almost a misnomer. Because it implies there are no servers which is untrue. However the servers are hidden from the developers. This model eliminates operational complexity and increases developer productivity. We came from monolithic computing to client-server to services to microservices to the serverless model. In other words, our systems have slowly “dissolved” from monolithic to function-...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability.

We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
