Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) September 19, 2011
TMW Systems, Inc., the leading provider of software for the transportation services industry, today announced that its popular mobile communications software for driver and dispatcher messaging, D2Link, is now available for the Android™ platform on a selection of certified devices. The move extends the range of smart-phone devices that can be used by carriers to communicate digitally with their drivers for trip status and load instructions as well as to support shipment track and trace capabilities.
D2Link is a cost-effective mobile data solution offered for use with a wide range of consumer smart-phones and handsets available from major cellular carriers. The D2Link system, first introduced in 2004, is now in use with many large, intermediate and smaller fleets, commercial and private, where it offers a flexible alternative to traditional, fixed, in-cab communications platforms.
The application makes full use of the Android operating system to present a sleek user interface and state-of-the-art features in the high resolution screens now found on many phones. New features in D2Link include mapping for both current vehicle locations and trip destinations.
The D2Link-Android menu allows users to select:
- Inbox for trip, load or driver-specific company communications
- Schedules for detailed pickup, stop, arrival and departure workflows
- Forms for specific communications and information templates
- Admin for advanced system setup, personalization and application management
