TMW Highlights Transport Analytics At TCA 2013 Convention

Truckload carriers benefit from software innovations that drive business excellence

BEACHWOOD, Ohio (March 3, 2013) - Trimble Transportation is featuring graphical aspects of its business intelligence platform for the transportation industry in booth 111 during the Truckload Carriers Association annual conference this week. Transport Analytics Visual Solutions from TMW are designed for company owners, senior executives and operational managers to quickly identify root causes of underperforming operations within their organization. These tools are being highlighted as part of TMW's support for the TCA 2013 conference theme, "Generations of Innovations".

The unique TMW platform of business intelligence tools addresses carrier-specific business management challenges. Each Transport Analytics Visual Solution presents a single executive dashboard that focuses on key performance metrics reflecting the overall health of a specific area of the business. Business leaders using the dashboards can drill-down to explore contributing factors to performance problems, identifying those particular aspects of the business that require attention or improvement.

The Transport Analytics Visual Solutions are part of a growing platform of graphical management insight tools that target business problems specific to asset-based transportation companies and truckload carriers in particular. The solutions now include three distinct dashboards: VISUAL Utilization, VISUAL Unscheduled Maintenance and VISUAL Fuel Management. Demonstrations will be offered at the Trimble Transportation booth during the TCA conference at the Wynn Las Vegas Resort, March 3 through March 6.

Also on display for carriers using TMT Fleet Maintenance software from Trimble Transportation on the IBM i (AS/400) platform will be a web-based graphical user interface that expands accessibility for the powerful program. The new look and user interface were developed with the well-known "Profound Logic" tool set for IBM products. TMT Fleet Maintenance-IBM i Web Edition offers this fully browser-based user experience with rich screen customization capabilities.
