Mack Trucks has expanded its fleet management services with the addition of Mack Omnitracs Integrated Telematics, providing real-time GPS location information as well as performance data.
Omnitracs Integrated Telematics makes use of Mack’s factory-installed GuardDog Connect telematics hardware to capture and relay information such as relative road speed, idling duration and cost.
The system is also 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. Subscriptions for current customer vehicles may also be available.
“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 & uptime services. “Applying that knowledge helps increase productivity, while also improving the safety of their drivers.”
