Pedigree Technologies Releases Tablet-Based M2M Solution For Fleet Management And Field Service Automation

M2M company Pedigree Technologies announces the release of OneViewPOV, tablet applications for fleet management and field service automation that give field service workers a mobile interface into edigree's awardwinning enterprise M2M solutions. The OneView M2M application suite helps companies increase operational efficiencies, meet compliance regulations, manage logistics, and maintain equipment from a centralized operations management platform.

Pedigree Technologies announces the release of OneViewPOV, tablet applications for fleet management and field service automation that give field service workers a mobile interface into Pedigree's award-winning enterprise M2M solutions. With the release of the new FleetPOV and JobsPOV applications, Pedigree Technologies OneView is the first fully integrated M2M solution that connects the mobile workforce and resources in the field to the enterprise.

OneView provides remote monitoring and diagnostics for vehicles, trucks, trailers, and fixed and mobile equipment. Vehicles and high-value equipment send critical information such as location, condition, runtime, stops and trips, diagnostics, and tank inventory to OneView. This M2M data in the cloud is accessible through the web-based OneView service as well as the tablet-based OneViewPOV applications.

"The release of OneViewPOV represents a significant milestone in the M2M industry as it brings the human interface to M2M," says Ian McPherson, Pedigree Technologies Chief Strategy Officer. "Users can now utilize affordable tablets and smartphones to schedule the activities of the mobile workers based on the needs of the equipment and machinery they support, all in an integrated, easy-to-use platform."

OneViewPOV aggregates real-time data from the machine, mobile worker, and operations "points of view" (POV) to streamline compliance, manage logistics, enable better service delivery, and drive revenue. The new OneViewPOV applications for fleet management and field service automation also facilitate collaboration among machines, field service workers, and the enterprise through event-triggered dialogue around assets or conditions.

"Machines have been talking to each other for a long time now," says Pedigree Technologies founder and CEO Alex Warner. "The value is created when people can quickly access and act upon the most up-to-date information they need to do their job—whether it's a field service worker, operations manager, or dispatcher—based on realtime data from assets and equipment. OneViewPOV gives users a way to sift through billions of data points to get to the information most important for their role, and then act on that information."

Operations managers gain a 360-degree view of the enterprise with asset tracking, fleet management, machine health, and inventory management solutions delivered through a centralized M2M platform. OneView FleetPOV gives mobile workers a single device for managing electronic driver logs and hours of service (HOS) to meet Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requirements.

OneView JobsPOV lets field service workers prioritize projects, jobs, and resources based on real-time operational data. JobsPOV improves dispatch and routing efficiencies, facilitates coordination of time and resources, and shortens the delivery-to-invoice timeline.

Pedigree Technologies was recently presented with the Frost & Sullivan 2011 North American New Product Innovation Award in M2M-based Fleet Management Software. The addition of the tablet-based FleetPOV and JobsPOV applications gives field service workers a mobile interface into Pedigree's award-winning, cloud-based enterprise M2M solution, powered by real-time machine monitoring across operations.
