More forklifts getting smarter with cellular connectivity from TotalTrax and Wyless

Wyless, the leading Internet of Things ( IoT ) global managed services provider and TotalTrax, Inc. the leading provider of automated real time vehicle, driver and inventory tracking products for manufacturing and warehouse operations today announced they have teamed up to provide TotalTrax Telematics customers with a new wireless networking solution based on cellular technology and services supplied by Wyless.

TotalTrax telematics’ technologies turn forklifts into “smart trucks” that provide real time operating data and alerts to improve safety, fleet utilization, labor productivity and inventory accuracy.

Phil Van Wormer, Senior Vice President at TotalTrax said:
“Many fleet operators are unable to obtain the benefits that deployment of our telematics solutions provides because they cannot get IT approval to use their existing Wi-Fi network for data transfer to a server. This cellular alternative combined with our cloud hosting services is a simple and cost effective alternative that can be implemented quickly.”

Shelby Noakes, Vice President of Product Marketing at Wyless also commented that:

“Customers appreciate this approach to cellular connectivity because they only pay a small monthly data plan charge per site instead of a monthly per truck charge for cellular service.”

Powered by Wyless, the cellular solution uses a single access point (router) inside of each warehouse connected to a cellular bridge to enable a separate data network for the smart trucks within the warehouse. This type of solution allows for real-time, high volume interchange with TotalTrax hosted cloud servers for a low, monthly cost. These services simplify operations, lower the total cost of ownership, and accelerate adoption of management technologies while retaining fleet visibility and control.
