Harms Oil to equip fleet with DT4000 TruckPC
Oct 9, 2009 12:53 PM
DriverTech, designer of the DT4000 TruckPC onboard computing system with three modes of communications, announced that Brookings SD-based Harms Oil Company will equip its entire fleet with the DT4000 TruckPC. The first-time users of a mobile communications system evaluated several competing products but selected the TruckPC based on the system’s wi-fi and in-cab scanning capabilities.
“Since we make repeated deliveries to specific locations, we are able to place wi-fi routers strategically in key locations enabling us to realize considerable communications savings,” said Jason Harms. “It’s a very cost-effective and efficient way of communicating bill-of-lading information from our trucks.”
Delivering bulk fuel in mainly Midwestern states, Harms will also be using DriverTech’s DTScan in-cab scanning device.
The DT4000 TruckPC tri-mode (satellite, cellular, and wi-fi) onboard computing system allows for a range of application choices and offers fleets an immediate return on investment by not paying a transaction charge per page for scanning in the cab. The TruckPC works with the DTScan to provide production-level scan and capture technology for truck cabs using Visioneer OneTouch scanners with Kofax VRS technology. The system uses familiar processes and software applications that meet professional imaging standards at a reduced image size, resulting in smaller data transmissions and faster processing into integrated back office enterprise systems.
