Mack Trucks announced an expansion of its fleet-management services with the addition of Mack Omnitracs Integrated Telematics. Powered by Omnitracs, LLC, a global pioneer of fleet-management solutions for transportation and logistics companies, Mack Omnitracs Integrated Telematics utilizes Mack’s factory-installed telematics hardware to help boost productivity and safety by providing real-time GPS location information, as well as driver performance data.
“Mack Omnitracs Integrated Telematics gives our customers a new look into their operations, enabling them to more easily see where and how their truck assets are being utilized,” said David Pardue, Mack vice president of connected vehicle and uptime services. “Applying that knowledge helps increase productivity, while also improving the safety of their drivers.”
Mack Omnitracs Integrated Telematics uses Mack’s fully integrated GuardDog Connect telematics hardware to capture and relay information such as relative road speed and idling duration and cost. In addition, the system is capable of providing analyses of driver performance based on the data and GPS information captured from the truck. Real-time email or text messages can alert customers to potential issues.
“With no additional hardware required, Mack Omnitracs Integrated Telematics provides detailed fleet management data without the need to add to or modify equipment,” said Rich Glasmann, vice president of OEM strategy, sales and marketing at Omnitracs. “This allows customers to gain even greater value from their existing hardware through data analytics.”
Mack Omnitracs Integrated Telematics subscriptions are available for all new Mack Pinnacle, Granite, TerraPro and Titan by Mack models.
