PeopleNet to Offer Cloud-Based Communications Platform

MINNETONKA, Minn. — PeopleNet Communications Corp. said it will soon offer a cloud-based communications gateway to provide more information to more devices at a faster pace than ever before.

President Brian McLaughlin said many fleets desire a more thorough analysis of data, as well as faster distribution through the supply chain.

Additionally, a greater need for a “hybrid” communications approach is developing, as “smart phones and tablets become a mainstay in trucking,” McLaughlin said.

PeopleNet provided Transport Topics a preview of its latest communications system, which uses the LTE wireless network, during a July 16 tour of its headquarters here.

Executives said they will demonstrate the product next month and outline other new offerings, including Android-supported apps, at its user conference Aug. 18-20 in Hollywood, Florida.

Additional coverage will be included in the July 28 print edition of Transport Topics.
