TMW Systems, Inc. and WebTech Wireless, Inc. have entered into a reseller and partnership agreement, creating a new mobile resource-management product for truck fleets. The offering is based on TMW's existing D2Link software and WebTech's new WT7000 Locator in-vehicle device. It is available to TMW's base of more than 1,600 customers, who manage more than 325,000 power units throughout North America. Under the deal, TMW will supply WT7000 in-vehicle Locators for use with its D2Link mobile communications software, combining the latter's cellular handset technology with the vehicle GPS location and telematics data provided by WebTech's Bluetooth-enabled devices. Trucking companies and drivers can easily and accurately monitor a wide range of vehicle location, usage and engine diagnostics data, all suitable for International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) reporting. On-demand reports offered with the combined D-2Link and WT7000 installations include a driver scorecard which records trip mileage, fuel economy, idle time, hard braking and overspeed. Other standard reports cover average and maximum speed and stop locations, arrival and departure times, and odometer readings. A fuel report records fuel consumption plus miles per gallon, and an Electronic Control Module Fault Log monitors vehicle component failures. Handsets incorporating barcode scanners can record information directly into D2Link, reducing mistakes in data entry, the companies said.
