Markus Vinke, Peter Giesekus - Geschäftsführer TIS GmbH

In the second half of 2019, there will be some very interesting industry events where you can also meet TIS GmbH live. The next opportunity is the 2nd DVZ Conference "TMS as key to forwarding 4.0" on September 5, 2019 in Frankfurt. We cordially invite you to visit us at our stand!

Since June 15, 2019, the Tacho 4.0 is mandatory in all newly registered trucks, an issue that often raises uncertainties and questions in practice. Our speaker Oliver Krahmer has therefore put together useful tips and informs you in his compact 30-minute webinar starting August 12, 2019. Participation is free.

Do you already know Honeywell's Mobility Edge platform? If not, you can learn more about it today.
Also: On November 1st, the sale of the Honeywell EDA50 will be discontinued. We summarize what you should know, especially if you are among of the companies using the handheld.

Enjoy reading this issue.

Tacho 4.0 - What's important to know?

The new regulation is in force: All trucks newly registered after June 15, 2019 must now be equipped with the digital tachograph 4.0 (EU Regulation 165/2014). These tachographs use digital technologies such as satellite-based positioning and short-range communications for control authorities. They are compatible with a variety of other telematics services and apps.

Although the new regulations took effect after a transitional phase and not overnight, many users still have a lot of questions to ask at the moment, most of which arise in practice with the new device. In addition, there is also some uncertainty about the correct and compliant use of the new speedometer by the driver.

Answers to these questions will be provided by a new free webinar.

Our speaker, Oliver Krahmer, discusses the important and sometimes hidden changes that the new Tacho 4.0 comes with.
He provides case studies and gives you useful documents.
Another topic is the tachometer archiving and the resulting pitfalls.


Tacho 4.0 - what you should know

August 12, 2019 | 2.00 - 2.30 p.m.


Please note: Registration deadline for our webinars is two days before the event. You have time to sign up for this webinar until 9.8.2019!

TISLOG Community – joint innovation management

TISLOG Community

Those who want to be successful today can not avoid innovation management and process optimization.
In the past, innovation took place behind closed doors in the company.

"What individual companies can not handle alone can be achieved together."

Meanwhile, based on this knowledge, re-thinking has been in progress for some time.
Against this background, for example, we provide our telematics interface for free use. Another result is the TISLOG community.

Look forward to more information in our next newsletter issue!

Ready for the future with Honeywell's Mobility Edge platform

Honeywell Mobility Edge Platform

The management and maintenance of different devices in a company often consumes great effort in terms of costs and time.
Short-lived update and version support for software, especially operating systems, can simultaneously shorten the product life cycle of the hardware used, another cost factor.
At the moment, this topic is especially interesting, as Windows will definitively discontinue its support for Windows Mobile* next year. The consequences affect many companies.

Future-ready with Mobility Edge

To increase investment and future security, our hardware partner Honeywell has developed a new Android-based platform in cooperation with Qualcomm and Google that supports versions up to Android 11 - Mobility Edge.

The advantages

The new platform makes companies more flexible and helps to save costs through extended product lifecycles. Mobility Edge provides a unified, dynamic hardware and software platform. Incompatibilities are a thing of the past, according to Honeywell.

Honeywell's Jörg Aßmann explains the advantages of the Mobility Edge platform in two short videos and introduces Honeywell's latest hardware, the Dolphin CK65 handheld.
The mobile device is part of our TISWARE hardware portfolio - now available through TIS. It is equipped with Mobility Edge and comes in the usual high and durable Honeywell quality. The CK65 has a large touch screen and additional hardware keyboard, a powerful, fast processor and solid scanning capabilities. With IP64 certification and resistance to multiple falls from over 2m to concrete, this power pack is ready to face even demanding logistics environments.

Do you have questions? Contact us!

Jörg Aßman from Honeywell introduces the CK65 mobile terminal with the new Mobility Edge platform.

Honeywell's Jörg Aßman introduces the Mobility Edge platform, which provides a long product lifecycle by support of Android up to version Android R.

*Microsoft support for Windows Mobile and Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 has already been discontinued. However, security updates will still be available until the beginning of 2020.

Honeywell ends sale of EDA50

After October 30, 2019, Honeywell's ScanPal EDA50 will no longer be available for purchase. For companies that use the EDA50 and want to stock up with further devices, now is the best time.

Until October 30, 2019 the EDA50 is still part of our TISWARE hardware portfolio and can be ordered from us until then.
Support and repairs are secured for the device with a Comprehensive contract for another 3 years (until 2022) by Honeywell.
The successor model, the EDA51, is already on the market and also available as part of our portfolio through us.

Note: Unfortunately, after a switch to the next device generation, the EDA50 accessory can not be used for the EDA51 because the EDA51 has a different housing.
