Horstmar, im September 2014 - The autonomous use of individual telematics systems among transport and logistics companies has almost become a thing of the past. These customer groups quickly realised that utilising telematics systems only improves the efficiency of processes when all of the available systems are intelligently networked. Schmitz Cargobull's trailer telematics system successfully meets this challenge.
In the past year Schmitz Cargobull Telematics has standardised the interface for the connection to other data systems and established a process for integrating the trailer telematics data.
The ongoing technological developments in the market have given rise to trends which Schmitz Cargobull Telematics has addressed with the new web service interface. The strategy is as follows:
Many customers are faced with the problem of having fitted telematics systems from a variety of different providers when purchasing vehicles. If they also lease trailers in addition to their own assets then their fleet may include the leasing company's own telematics system. Is there any way to obtain standardised data? A mix like this would force the customer to operate 3-4 systems simultaneously, which is a completely unfeasible solution.
Schmitz Cargobull Telematics – The solution:
T-Systems and Schmitz Cargobull Telematics found a solution in 2012 – TelematicOne. Since then, T-Systems has continued developing the system. The product is now available.
TelematicOne is already connected to a broad range of truck and trailer telematics systems (MAN telematics/Fleetboard/Volvo Dynafleet/Cargobull Telematics / Wabco Trailer Guard/IDEM) and can therefore offer customers one portal for consolidation. Once again, customers have the advantage of only needing to use one single portal.
With the intelligent data networking, Schmitz Cargobull Telematics offers its customers even greater benefits through direct process support. This is worth real money.
