Introducing Roadnet Transportation Suite v3.6.8

With Roadnet Transportation Suite v3.6.8, several features have been released to continue to make ease of use improvements and streamline functions and processes for organizations. Mobile applications continue to be built out and the use of Roadnet Scheduler becomes easier.

General Enhancements
Never lose data again when you’re disrupted. The new configurable save prompt feature allows you to set reminders to save your work at the time interval you choose, reminding you to save work every 10 minutes, for example, or every 60 minutes. Make changes to multiple streets in a specific area all at once with the lasso street selection feature. You can also now view descriptions to breaks and waits.

Roadnet Scheduler
Roadnet Scheduler allows you to provide a tool that customer service reps, salespeople and customers can use to self-schedule a delivery as part of their ordering process. The new widget allows companies to place the scheduling tool directly into their website without having to create code. For more information on how Scheduler works in conjunction with our suite of products, please contact your account manager.

Roadnet
For companies that use reloads in the waste industry, it’s important to ensure that the same type of product is reloaded. Reload Product Type Mixing Restrictions prevents mixing of different product types on trips to ensure that the correct product is placed on the route for reloads.

Dock Scheduling functionality has been improved to provide more detailed information on where and when vehicles are loaded at the beginning of the day.

Enhancements have also been added to Goal Distance Enhancements to show more realistic distances. Ensure routes are always sent to the host system with driver and/or equipment assigned when using the new Send Orders Options.

Territory Planner
Edit locations within the Territory Planner editor through a simple right-click – no more opening separate windows, manual documentation, or wasted time. Make Territories and Assign Days are powerful tools with many options that are essential to planning territories and creating routes for different circumstances, business units, operational scenarios and what-if scenarios. Now you can create multiple passes for both Make Territories and Assign Days for quick what-if planning.

Omnitracs Supports Wreaths Across America

WAAwreathAs we approach the holiday season, Omnitracs and its portfolio of solutions – including Roadnet – want to give back to our local and global communities. Omnitracs is leading a now 5-year tradition to support Wreaths Across America in partnership with our customers, employees and many others in the trucking industry. Our support includes both a financial contribution and employee volunteerism.

On National Wreaths Across America Day, more than 100,000 volunteers are expected to lay fresh wreaths on over 500,000 headstones at military cemeteries, in the U.S. and abroad, to honor veterans who have served and sacrificed for their countries. Omnitracs employee volunteers will participate in key communities where our employees live and work – Baltimore (Arlington National Cemetery), Dallas (DFW National Cemetery), Minneapolis (Fort Snelling National Cemetery) and San Diego (Miramar National Cemetery).

As part of the Omnitracs family, we at Roadnet are proud to be part of this tradition to support the Wreaths Across America effort.

National Wreaths Across America Day is this Saturday, December 13th. To learn more about Wreaths Across America, including how to volunteer, visit www.wreathsacrossamerica.org and click How to Help.
