Terminal Emulation Wavelink
for touch-based devices & TIS telematics for Smartphones
November 2, 2015
Touch-based devices such as smartphones and tablets have already entered the logistics and intralogistics world. So far, however, Terminal Emulation has still required a terminal with keys. People working in the warehouse as well as on the road therefore needed two devices to be able to capture all data. With "Velocity" our partner Wavelink has now created a solution that allows you to pick up your mainframe computer with all of its functions on a touch-based device. Terminal emulation goes smartphone, you might say. So does TISLOG! These brand new developments we introduce to you in our newsletter. Also learn more about our new telematicboxes in long distance traffic - and where and when we will celebrate our 30-year company anniversary in 2016.
More details now in this newsletter - enjoy reading!

Velocity from Wavelink: Terminal Emulation for touchscreens
Previously for the Terminal Emulation a mobile terminal with keys was always necessary to operate the mainframe computer also from the warehouse. So far anyone who has been working on the road with touch screen devices already, still needed key-based devices in the warehouse also to capture the data for the mainframe computer there. With "Velocity" our partner Wavelink has now created a solution that allows you to pick up your mainframe computer with all of its functions on a tablet or smartphone.
Velocity converts the text-based information of the host system automatically into the intuitive touch interface of the mobile terminal. With all the advantages of touch-based navigation, such as simple taps, swipes and pinches of windows. That makes it easier for your employees to navigate the screen and speed up data entry.
The "pure" terminal emulation remains the technical basis, so that in existing IT structures, nothing needs to be changed.
Wavelink thus now enables your employees, to use the usual devices with touch screens also for the collection of data in the warehouse. One device is fit for two working environments. Now you can use your touch-based devices from the cargo traffic in the warehouse overnight - and save hardware costs.

Two new telematicboxes for long-haul and trailer telematics
Our telematicboxes have experienced a thorough re-launch and come with brand new features: While our telematicbox Truck 2 Premium provides comprehensive telematics data for dispatching and fleet management, telematicbox Truck 2 Locate ensures for more efficient trailer fleet management.
The telematicbox Truck 2 Premium
is equipped with a powerful GPS receiver and a separate SIM card. It can be installed across manufacturers in all trucks and be connected via the FMS interface to the CAN bus or via the information interface to the digital tachograph.
This info interface also sends data when the engine is not running and supplies your dispatching department reliably and at any time with data of driving, working and rest periods that are automatically evaluated permanently by TISLOG office. Dispatchers can easily control, when and where their drivers have made breaks and when they were driving. Other features include, for example, a halt report and driving style assessment.
The telematicbox Truck 2 Locate
allows reliable positioning of the trailer independently of the tractor. They continuously delivers Geo data to the control center, allowing routes and downtimes of the semitrailer to be tracked. This facilitates the management of all trailers, regardless of whether the tractor works with TISLOG or not. Do you want to know more? Then read our blog post.
