DriverTech — designers of the DT4000 TruckPC, a Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard (formerly known as Windows XP Embedded) onboard computing system with three modes of communications — announced the release of its new Core Mobile Software. The company says Version 4.26 contains several updates as well as more detailed reporting capabilities and key second-generation applications that enhance operations for fleets and their drivers.

“Along with the ongoing development of our DT4000 TruckPC hardware, now in its third version, we have learned what works best for our customers and have continually refined our software,” says Mark Haslam, chief executive officer of DriverTech, based in Salt Lake City. “This latest version of our Core Mobile Software based on the Windows Embedded Standard 2009 operating system is designed specifically to meet their needs.”

Available for new TruckPC users and already being delivered to fleets using DriverTech DT4000 units via over-the-air programming, Core Mobile Software incorporates several new features, according to the company:

  • A single driver login capability that can be integrated with third-party applications replaces separate login requirements for each integration partner;
  • A security feature that can send an e-mail if vehicle movement is detected without a driver logged on; and
  • An enhanced End of Day Rollup that sends information from each TruckPC, including data on drivers, vehicles and the amount of cellular and Wi-Fi usage, that now includes 156 metrics, twice the number available in previous software versions.
  • Also incorporated in DriverTech Core Mobile Software Version 4.26 are two recently announced applications, developed with the input of key customers, designed to enhance the efficiency of business processes by making it easier for drivers and fleets to manage documents. Included is a new version of the DTScan In-Cab Scanning solution that features added capability to view, zoom and pan scanned documents, according to the company; additionally, a completely redesigned suite of eLog applications enhances the accuracy of driver logs, allows drivers to e-mail or fax log information, and makes it easier for fleets and drivers to remain in compliance with hours-of-service regulations.
