PeopleNet Introduces New Mobile PeopleNet Fleet Manager for Instant iPad Access to Vehicle and Driver Data, Maps and Messaging

ORLANDO, Fla. and MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 21, 2013 – PeopleNet®, a Trimble® company and leading provider of fleet mobility technology that optimizes performance and decision-making management, today announced the Mobile PeopleNet Fleet Manager (PFM), a new mobile site for accessing vehicle and driver data, maps and messaging through an iPad. In making the announcement at the ATA (American Trucking Association) Management Conference & Exhibition in Orlando, Senior Vice President Rick Ochsendorf said, “Today’s managers are increasingly relying on mobile computing to help them do their jobs better and more easily. Mobile PFM gives them instant wireless access to the information they need for decision making.”

Mobile PFM, certified for Safari browser, provides the following information:

  • Maps (embedded Google maps) displaying vehicles with breadcrumb information; filtered by vehicle group
  • Vehicle list sorted by vehicle name, last data call, last message, last location
  • Messaging to a vehicle
  • Driver list sorted by driver name, driver ID, terminal, duty status, available hours, and vehicle number
  • Messaging to a driver

Luckey Logistics LLC is using the Mobile PFM, and according to IT Manager Patrick Barnwell, “This application helps us meet our goal of running our business with fewer employees than other companies our size. The advantage of instant access to vehicle and driver information, map-based location information and vehicle messaging is priceless. Even when our executives are at their desks, they’re using their iPads. Nothing to boot up, no connection to look for. And our dispatchers can Manage their drivers from anywhere 24/7.”
