Omnitracs, a leading provider of fleet management solutions to logistics and transportation companies, has recently launched Intelligent Vehicle Gateway (IVG), a new and advanced technology designed to lead the next generation in commercial vehicle telematics.
Representing a breakthrough in mobile fleet management technology, this highly powerful and integrated application delivery technology offers state-of-the-art features such as hands-free voice commands, outstanding wireless connectivity and a larger display designed to enhance efficiency, safety and productivity.
Jimmy Fortuna, vice president of product management at Omnitracs, explained that IVG is a single, mobile device that takes several of the time-tested features of its predecessor technologies, combined with new features, to provide fleets with one advanced, unified platform to enable the fast, safe and efficient delivery of mobile applications and back-office information exchange.
He added that IVG is the most solid commercial vehicle telematics platform available which links drivers to vehicles assets and the home office as well as enables them to access Omnitracs and third-party applications in one place, improving the driver experience and enhancing fleet productivity.
IVG’s cutting-edge connectivity and hands-free options fully support wide-ranging in-cab and out-of-cab mobility applications to enhance driver quality of productivity, safety and life. Featuring multichannel Bluetooth and Wi-Fi hot spot capabilities, this allows motorists to use any and every one of their smart devices or other wireless- or Bluetooth-enabled components to stay connected to the home office.
Building on the benefits of Omnitracs’ text-to-speech and in-motion user interface capability, IVG’s integrated voice command feature interrelates with all Omnitracs apps and enhances safety by enabling the driver to keep his eyes on the road and hands on the steering wheel when interacting with the platform.
According to Chief Technology Officer Dan Speicher, their relentless commitment to innovating solutions that meet the changing needs of today’s commercial fleets make it an optimal time to unveil IVG. He noted that the huge advantage of having a single mobile device service delivery platform is that Omnitracs can now speed up the delivery of high-end new features and functions. “Our customers will benefit from the significant scale and time-to-market benefits associated with our ability to focus product development and engineering resources on a single device platform.”
With a single connection point to the vehicle data bus, IVG installation is made simpler and faster than legacy multi-unit hardware platforms, enabling fleets to simplify system setup and reduce vehicle downtime.
