Using TomTom data, Omnitracs develops software that meets a wide range of fleet-specific needs. That includes a full suite of routing and dispatch solutions, which help back-office teams plan the best routes for deliveries and make changes on the fly, provide turn-by-turn navigation for drivers, and enable delivery tracking and status notifications for customers.
To help clients plan optimal routes to and from depots and calculate precise travel times, Omnitracs integrates TomTom location data into its custom route-path algorithms and time-and-distance matrix builder. With these capabilities, back-office teams can plan the most efficient routes for each delivery, while drivers receive accurate directions and estimated arrival times (ETAs).
The Omnitracs solution is further enhanced with the TomTom logistics dataset. This takes unique large vehicle attributes, including height, weight and cargo type, into account to provide optimal routes for commercial drivers – making sure they travel on compliant roads and avoid restrictions, such as tunnels with vehicle height and width limits.
Finally, to power its Active Alert solution, Omintracs harnesses the TomTom Geofencing API and Notifications API. With this powerful duo, the company can provide customers with proactive updates on their order status and alert them when a delivery driver is approaching their location.
