Omnitracs, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated and provider of integrated wireless systems, applications, and services to transportation and logistics companies, and TMW Systems announced the availability of several new product integrations.

As announced on August 23, 2013, a definitive agreement was entered into to sell Omnitracs to Vista Equity Partners, a U.S. based private equity firm. Closing of the acquisition is expected during the first quarter of fiscal 2014, subject to the terms and conditions of the definitive agreement.

“TMW has partnered with Omnitracs for many years to offer cutting edge functionality to our customers. With these new additions, customers can benefit from ready access to the very latest, time sensitive and mission critical information from Omnitracs, giving them actionable information when they need it,” said TMW executive vice president of marketing, Scott Vanselous.

TMW customers will now gain integrated access to the following Omnitracs offerings:

Critical Event Reporting (CER)—joins Omnitracs’ comprehensive, actionable view of safety-oriented, event-driven data summarized within TMWSuite by vehicle and monitored with TMW Dawg Alerts to provide near real-time updates when specific events occur. Additionally, TMWSuite can now forward integrated messages from critical events, requesting driver feedback.
Trailer/Reefer Tracks Portal—delivers Omnitracs’ pertinent trailer information, such as connect/disconnect information and reefer alerts, directly to key personnel via the TMWSuite Trailer Tracking module and The DAWG exception alerting module for TMWSuite. Additionally, advanced Dawg alert functionality enables customers to gain greater and timelier visibility when certain events occur.
Driver Workflow with Automated Arrival & Departure Functionality—simplifies circle-of-service operation in-cab by providing an application that enhances operational efficiency with better management of load assignments for fleets using the enhanced Omnitracs integration from TMWSuite.
Hosted TMW/Omnitracs Portal â€” thin client and streamlined user interface is easier to adopt, install and manage for small- to medium-sized fleets using Innovative IES, Innovative Access or Access Plus dispatch solutions from TMW Systems.

“Today, fleets have access to more data than ever before, but they don’t always have a streamlined and actionable picture across systems to power the most informed business decisions,” said Norm Ellis, vice president of sales and marketing at Omnitracs. “Our newest features now available to TMW customers will give fleets the tools they need to take appropriate actions more quickly, increasing productivity and enhancing customer service.”
