Rand Mcnally's New Rand Platform Enhances Asset Tracking

The company offers wired, solar, and battery-powered versions for customers needing constant location tracking with alerts and pings every two minutes.

FREMONT, CA: Proper fleet management can significantly improve a business's vehicular activity and increases organizational efficiency. A fleet management system can increase productivity by calculating more efficient travel routes for the drivers, scheduling preventative maintenance on time, and helps in monitoring fuel usage closely. A new asset tracker lineup is now available on Rand McNally's flexible Rand Platform, a leader in commercial transportation and fleet technology.

The TrueTrack W110 wired tracker connects and sends pings every two minutes as part of its regular offering. Depending on the situation and requirement, the average ping rate for wireless trackers might range from once every 30 minutes to once daily.

Employing the latest, one of the top-of-the-line Rand Platforms, Voyager Express, a transportation company based in Detroit with connections to the auto industry, has been using wired trackers from Rand McNally. The business transports high-value automotive parts on drop-and-hook trailers, so it's crucial always to know where the trailers are in addition to the trucks driving them.

"We're 100 percent installed and it's pretty sweet – it lets me know where all my assets are and whether they are tracking to plan," says Tim Reilly, V.P. at Voyager Express.

"We have customers who transport very high-value cargo and need to know where it is at all times. We were able to develop this wired solution and get it running on the Rand Platform, which enables even more access to key information such as external temperature and humidity readings." says Adam Ricketts, V.P. of Product at Rand McNally.
