Omnitracs wanted to unify the business on a single IT platform to achieve control, structure and stability—providing a single version of the truth. Partnering with ServiceNow dedicated IT professionals, they deployed the Now Platform from the ground up.
Transforming trucking and transportation
The trucking and transportation industry has been transformed by technology. Every minute counts in this highly competitive environment and big logistics businesses need to be certain that deliveries will be made precisely on time, to the correct location. They also need to know that their vehicles are running efficiently and following the best route, that drivers and other road users are safe, and that impacts on the environment are minimized.
For more than 30 years Omnitracs has led the way in the development of highly sophisticated, world-class telematics systems that are providing unprecedented levels of control and visibility of the performance of large vehicle fleets.
Omnitracs has transformed the highly competitive global trucking and transportation industry, with 13,000 organizations in 70 countries using its market-leading fleet management solutions. Its Software-as-a-Service provides unprecedented levels of live data, now including in-cab video, and forensic analytics.
This enables comprehensive control over vehicle performance, routes, and schedules, maximizing efficiencies, reducing fuel consumption, keeping drivers and other road users safe, and reducing environmental impacts. Every week Omnitracs solutions calculate half a million routes and monitor 240 million truck miles worldwide.
Achieving control, structure, and stability
As the company’s IT ecosystem continued to grow in complexity, Omnitracs realized that on-premise processing power was quickly becoming insufficient and a move to the cloud was essential.
Planned and executed correctly, this would provide the ideal foundations for the next phase of the business’s growth and development. Its IT executives wished to unify the business on a single IT platform, to achieve control, structure, and stability — and to provide a ‘single version of the truth’. They knew that finding the right partner, with the right technology, to accompany them on their transformation journey, was crucial.
Streamlined, centralized management
Omnitracs chose ServiceNow to provide that single version of the truth. The Now Platform is uniting its teams and equipping its people with the tools to write the next chapter in the story of a business that is used to leading the pack.
“We have an ecosystem of many complex IT environments, and to manage that ecosystem successfully, you have to have one central platform, one streamlined central management tool that everyone uses — one central source of the truth,” explains Justin Newcom Vice President of Global IT at Omnitracs.
