Trimble announced new integrations with KeepTruckin and project44, and several new user features for its transportation management system (TMS) during its virtual in.sight user conference + expo this week. KeepTruckin also announced integrations with Innovative and Vusion, both Trimble companies.
“As the COVID-19 pandemic has shown, maximizing asset uptime is a critical component to keeping the supply chain moving,” said Renaldo Adler, industry principal, asset maintenance for Trimble Transportation. “Each of these enhancements to our TMT solutions is designed to enhance the fleet maintenance process, enabling users to focus on increasing profitability, improving uptime and serving a wider variety of customers.”
KeepTruckin is now integrated with Trimble’s TMT Service Center and TMT Fleet Maintenance solutions, opening up more data insight for shared customers. Specifically, the integration allows for data such as fault codes to be synced between KeepTruckin and TMT and any defects identified via KeepTruckin’s DVIRs are automatically pulled into the TMT platform.
KeepTruckin’s integration with Vusion will tie fuel purchase data and GPS and ECM odometer readings together to streamline International Fuel Tax Agreement and mileage tax returns.
The Innovative integration connects KeepTruckin’s mobile app to the platform, allowing load data to flow seamlessly. Hours-of-service details, load information, and remaining drive time from KeepTruckin’s app are made available within the Innovative platform, as is real-time GPS data.
Trimble’s announced integration with project44 provides TruckMate broker and third-party logistics customers with quicker access to rate quotes and easier management of load tenders and acceptance. With this new tool, brokers and 3PLs can gain access to industry-leading carriers directly within their TMS without the need to maintain individual connections.
Trimble also announced a number of new features for its own products. These include:
TMT Fleet Maintenance and TMT Service Center – credit card processing: Credit card processing enables third-party credit card processing through integrations with a payment processor partner.
TMT Service Center – dashboards for advanced reporting: The advanced reporting dashboard provides an easy to use, configurable and intuitive way to visualize critical data such as invoices, profitability and resource efficiency.
In addition to the KeepTruckin and project44 integrations, Trimble announce several additional integrations at its user conference. There are:
Container IQ In-Port Tracking: Container IQ has been enhanced to enable TruckMate intermodal carriers to track containers in port, providing greater visibility into container location. This enhancement joins Container IQ’s existing rail tracking functionality and expands fleets’ ability to more closely anticipate containers’ availability for pickup.
WorkOptima Integration: When using WorkOptima with TruckMate, carriers and brokers can easily manage all of their critical documents, workflows and processes in a cohesive and integrated solution. The solution enables automation to improve accuracy, save time and reduce errors and the costs of utilizing manual paper and workflow processing.
Innovative IES platform customers now have a new dashboard that allows end users to customize screens, add key data content such as available loads, assigned orders, and orders in progress, and then drag and drop that content into a format that is easiest to use. Reports, maps and graphs can also be added.
TMW.Suite users now have access to fuel dispatch subscription services. These subscription bundles offer a standalone solution to improve planning and dispatch operations, streamline in-ground inventory management and replenishment of products and track fuel deliveries to ensure they are made on time and in the right quantity, the company said.
