Combination of company’s ELD software, Samsung tablets creates in-cab platform for improving efficiency, productivity

ORBCOMM, a provider of Internet of Things solutions, recently made available a new in-cab fleet management solution it says leverages mobile technology from Samsung.

The new system combines ORBCOMM’s electronic logging device (ELD) and reporting, and analytics from its FleetManager platform, with Samsung tablets, enabling fleets to build a scalable productivity hub and connected driver ecosystem that helps retain drivers, boost customer satisfaction through better service and reduce costs, with improved asset and resource utilization.

“By bringing together ORBCOMM’s best-in-class ELD solution with the advanced Samsung tablet technology, customers can streamline their fleet operations and become more profitable,” said Chris MacDonald, ORBCOMM’s senior vice president and general manager for the Americas. “Together with Samsung, we are providing fleet managers with the comprehensive tools they need to improve the driving experience, increase customer satisfaction and reduce IT risks and admin costs.”

The truck management system is available on Samsung’s ruggedized Galaxy Tab Active2 and Galaxy Tab A 8.0 tablets, which are secured with Samsung Knox, the company’s defense-grade enterprise mobile security platform, to safeguard fleet data. By converging internal or third-party, Android-based productivity and efficiency applications with a tablet, fleets can connect their drivers, schedules, assets, back office and customers through one in-cab screen. The Samsung tablets help drivers track orders, capture signatures and take notes through fast data processing and high-resolution cameras for optimal efficiency, ORBCOMM said.

“Samsung’s B2B tablet solutions are designed to be versatile and customizable to solve the evolving business needs of today’s organizations,” said Taher Behbehani, head of B2B mobile at Samsung. “Through collaboration with ORBCOMM, this new truck management solution is easy to deploy and use, helping driving fleets stay connected to maximize efficiency, productivity and security across operations.”
