– Combined cellular and satellite monitoring system delivers sophistication and value
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, June 2, 2014 / PRNewswire – ROAMWORKS, a pioneer in machine-to-machine (M2M) software and systems integration, recently announced its entry into the Tanzanian market – one of the world’s fastest-growing economies — with powerful solutions that enhance fleet efficiency, vehicle performance and driver safety.
ROAMWORKS’ fleet management solutions offers businesses unique capabilities that extend the value of M2M connectivity. Built on the open ROAM® platform, the fleet application gives clients flexibility and choice in terms of hardware, system setup and communications network. Businesses can leverage their existing infrastructure and link fleet data to other enterprise systems they’re currently using such as billing or third-party dispatch systems. Additionally, ROAMWORKS now offers a combined GSM and satellite package that helps trucking companies optimize their vehicles with rich features and improved security, even in the most remote areas.
“This is a major advantage to smaller businesses, which make up 95% of Tanzania’s economy,” explains Jason Gasper, Chief Operating Officer of ROAMWORKS. “They can get a highly robust fleet management solution, without having to start over, at a reasonable cost due to our existing partnerships with hardware manufacturers and communications carriers. Our ROAM platform is easy to use — and because of our experience in other markets, comes with a pre-set number of features that can simply be ‘turned on’ when smaller customers begin to grow and require more advanced features.”
ROAMWORKS enables dual mode connectivity. Data can be transmitted over satellite or cellular networks, toggling between the two as vehicles travel. This ensures continuous connectivity in remote areas while also “resource managing” to contain communication costs.
Fleet managers can access the ROAMWORKS solution through a mobile app that enables decision making and control from anywhere at any time. Example: If a delivery driver is delayed or unreachable, the manager can take immediate action to reschedule loads, correct driver behavior or, if theft is suspected, completely immobilize the vehicle.
ROAMWORKS operates via a network of value-added resellers in the Tanzanian market and can be contacted directly for a list of ROAM global partners.
Founded in 2000, ROAMWORKS applies new thinking to mobile and fixed asset tracking and monitoring. The open ROAM platform enables organizations of all sizes to seamlessly “bridge the gap” to other business systems and retrieve, process, control and manage their data with unprecedented flexibility and efficiency. Drawing on decades of wireless experience — with particular emphasis in communications and messaging, software design for multi-level user interaction, transportation, distribution and logistics, facilities management, financial services, and data security — our engineers and executives have delivered revolutionary market applications now used in over 30 industries across the globe.
