Qualcomm Inc., a provider of integrated wireless systems, applications and services to transportation and logistics companies, and TMW Systems Inc., a provider of transportation management software solutions, on Sunday, Sept. 23, announced the integration of Qualcomm’s Services Portal with TMWSuite.

Automatically collecting critical tethered and untethered trailer and reefer data directly from Qualcomm’s Services Portal, TMWSuite is designed to acquire near real-time alerts on trailer information. The companies say the integration supports both Qualcomm’s Trailer Tracks untethered trailer management solution and Trailer Tracks 100 tethered trailer tracking solution, enabling fleets to gain access to timely trailer connect/disconnect information, position information, door open/closed alerts and cargo sensor updates (loaded/unloaded), as well as reefer-equipped trailer notifications and alerts.

The companies say the combined offering provides more data directly from Qualcomm’s Service Portal into TMWSuite, which is based on ResultsNow by TMW with The Dawg applications, provides enhanced business intelligence for improved trailer utilization, proactive response to unanticipated trailer activity, improved cargo security and increased customer service levels.

“By knowing the location and status of trailers in near-real time, fleet managers can maximize their resources by making informed time-critical decisions to better serve their customers,” said Jennifer McQuiston, alliance manager for TMW. “Our latest integration with Qualcomm’s Services Portal enables us to deliver this benefit through valuable connect and disconnect information.”

“Together, we are dedicated to providing the business intelligence fleets need to maximize productivity and profitability,” said Norm Ellis, vice president of sales, services and marketing for Qualcomm Enterprise Services. “Our latest integration adds to the more than 75 existing Qualcomm-TMW integrations and ensures mixed fleets can more easily and intelligently manage their assets with improved visibility and access to real-time data within a seamless user interface.”
