Omnitracs, LLC, a provider of fleet management solutions to transportation and logistics companies, announced the availability of Omnitracs Roadnet Anywhere v3.9.

With the new enhancements, the Roadnet Anywhere platform provides an even more holistic view of fleets, consolidating views of routing, dispatching, proof of delivery, telematics, customer notifications, and business analytics in one place. 

One of the biggest additions to the new version of Roadnet Anywhere is the ability to create and optimize multi-day routes.These routes can be created automatically based on existing orders customers have in the system, and can be configured to include any layover rules (e.g., information pertaining to hotel fees, equipment location restrictions, etc.) in an easily accessible format.  

The update also includes significant enhancements to Insight — a data discovery and exploration tool that allows executives, managers, drivers, and data analysts to easily and quickly mine data. Specifically, the release allows users to dynamically change data drill down paths to determine root cause analysis and understand relations — unlike most BI (business intelligence) products, which have pre-determined drill-down paths and require IT involvement to change these. 

In addition to the routing and Insight upgrades, other enhancements to the Roadnet Anywhere platform include:

  • Geofence Enhancements: Offers the ability to draw geofences in additional custom shapes, giving customers more flexibility in defining stop parameters.
  • Vehicle and Equipment Assignment: Allows workers to assign equipment using their mobile device at the beginning of the day as well as if they switch equipment mid-way through the day. This will help ensure an accurate record of where each piece of equipment was used and by whom, and, in turn, support more effective performance management.
  • Enhanced Analytic Filtering: An improved filter for Key Performance Indicators allows fleets to sort by Operations Unit, enabling them to focus on specific units of their business at a time, whether these are depots or regions.
  • Key Fob Support for Telematics —Newly-available key fobs allow drivers to be associated with telematics devices and their given vehicles. This important new feature allows performance data associated with a hands-free telematics device to be definitely associated with a given driver, especially where vehicles may have different drivers from one day to the next, or even in a given day.

Roadnet Anywhere v3.9 is now available. For additional information on Omnitracs’ planning and delivery solutions, visit: http://www.omnitracs.com/solutions/planning-delivery.
