KORE and Magellan Partner to Expand Fleet Management ROI

Leading M2M Communications Provider Integrates with RoadMate RC9496T-LMB for Advanced Location-Based Transportation Management

ALPHARETTA, Ga.--()--KORE, the world’s largest managed wireless network services provider specializing in machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, today announced the integration of its Position Logic software with the Magellan RoadMate RC9496T-LMB. This integration allows jobs and routes in Position Logic’s Workflow solution to be sent to RoadMate RC9496T-LMB devices to assist with managing allocation of location-based jobs across a fleet of workers. The integrated solution, optimized for fleet and fleet management, delivers expanded tangible return on investment (ROI) for the transportation industry.

Position Logic’s Workflow solution enables fleet managers to create location-based jobs, assign them expected durations, group them into routes, if needed, and assign them to the RoadMate RC9496T-LMB fleet navigation device. This helps fleet managers increase billable miles, reduce fuel, maintenance and associated operating costs. Position Logic’s Workflow also allows customers to manage jobs and analyze statistics on actual vs expected job performance.

“Position Logic is an innovative technology leader in the location-based services space. We are pleased to partner with them and offer the Magellan RC9496T-LMB to Position Logic customers,” said Stig Pedersen, associate vice president of product management for Magellan. “The combination of our two services delivers a highly efficient and flexible way for dispatchers to communicate with drivers in real-time, saving time, money and frustration.”

Workflow paired with the Magellan RC9496T-LMB helps fleet managers send/receive stop information in real-time, plan more precise travel times and effectively manage ETAs by avoiding traffic jams and delays, resulting in increased efficiency and profitability.

“We are pleased to have the RoadMate RC9496T-LMB integrated. The Magellan integration further complements our Workflow/Dispatch module; improving communication between the dispatcher and driver and enhanced stop management,” said Felix Lluberes, executive vice president, advanced applications, KORE. “I am certain our service providers will be able to leverage the device and deliver more comprehensive services.”
