Telematics / Transportation Management
TIS develops standby app
Bocholt, February 7, 2017
TIS GmbH, which is specialized in mobile telematics solutions for storage and transport, has now developed a telematics app for dispatchers and contractors under the name "TISLOG mobile Office", which provides the most important fleet, driver and tour data by smartphone. The solution is based on the TISLOG logistics software and runs on all mobile devices with Android. With the new app, TIS is primarily aimed at dispatchers in standby services and entrepreneurs who want to access data from anywhere in order to make informed decisions and communicate directly to the respective drivers. TIS is exhibiting on LogiMAT trade fair and is presenting in Hall 7 at Stand A05 / A07.
The standby app primarily provides information about drivers and vehicles. It shows the current balance of driving, resting and working hours as well as the last reported tacho status. An integrated search function makes it easy to find individual drivers that can be selected and called directly from a list. With the mail function individual, several or all drivers can be contacted with a written message at once. Distinct symbols indicate whether the message has been sent or read.
The vehicle number, license plate number and VIN are displayed for each truck. The last reported position data of selected vehicles or fleets are displayed on a map together with the license tag number or vehicle number. The app also provides access to all company and product news that TIS publishes on its own website in a weekly rhythm.
"In the next step, the standby app will also display the order data and stop lists," says Mike Ahlmann, who is responsible for the development of the app at TIS. In principle, the new app is "the mobile version of the web-based information and disposition platform Infodesk".
In May 2015, TIS had completely restructured its product range. Under the name of TISLOG Logistics & Mobility, the medium-sized family company offers a modular solution package for small, medium and large companies, which is constantly being further developed.
