SKOKIE, Ill., June 26, 2012 – Rand McNally today announced that its mobile communication systems are now certified and integrated with two applications from TMW Systems, Inc. As a result, fleets that use TMWSuite® or TL2000® now can pull data from Rand McNally’s TND™ 760 and TruckPC in-cab devices through their TMW products. “Rand McNally has been a TMW Business Alliance Partner for decades,” said Scott Vanselous, CMO of TMW Systems. “By certifying integration with Rand McNally’s mobile communication and management systems, our customers have ready access to a full suite of Rand McNally solutions.” One customer is Freight Exchange of North America (F/X), a Chicago-based, North American full-truckload carrier that operates nearly 300 power units from its terminals in Southern
California, El Paso, Dallas, and Chicago. F/X has integrated information from Rand McNally’s TND™ 760 (Fleet Edition) with TMWSuite. For F/X, the integration allows for the use of real-time information from the in-cab device to dispatch trucks, receive automatic arrival and departure notification, match loads with available drivers, and track the progress of the driver’s daily workflow.
“TMWSuite has been a tremendously successful tool to manage our operation. Rand McNally’s integration allows us to leverage our investment even further,” said Fred Alaimo, V.P. of Operations at F/X. “The TND™ 760 offered more functionality than other solutions we reviewed, and it’s priced significantly more competitively. The icing on the cake is that the drivers love the new device and have been quick to adopt and use the technology, making everybody a winner. The TMW certified integration pulls critical data from Rand McNally’s in-cab systems via Rand McNally Connect software. The data provided by Rand McNally’s devices enable TMW products to deliver the following:
