TALLYMATICS® Inc. is announcing new features for its TruFleet.Cloud™ Geolocation and Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) Software as a Service, tailored for electrical utilities customers.

A key success factor for meeting the needs of electrical utilities is the capability to support multiple communication networks, especially Land Mobile Radio (LMR) networks, and multiple devices such as mobile and portable radios and dedicated telematics devices.  TruFleet.Cloud has added radio network support to its existing LTE support with the introduction of the TruFleet Extender, which securely integrates with radio network from vendors such as Tait Communications, Motorola Solutions and Kenwood, leveraging TALLYMATICS’ established experience with those networks featured in its local server product: TruFleet Wireless Communications Protocol (WCP) Server.  TruFleet Extender™ allows multiple diverse networks (vendor, geography, technology) to all be supported in each customer instance.

TALLYMATICS has also enhanced its rich geolocation/AVL feature set with several important features for utilities:

  • International Fuel Tax Agreement support
  • Outage Management System support using Multi-Speak
  • GIS Feature integration with ESRI ArcGIS servers
  • Emergency/Mandown radio and telematics alerts

East River Electric Power Cooperative, Inc. in South Dakota was able to leverage TruFleet.Cloud’s radio support when it was faced with its incumbent geolocation/AVL vendor discontinuing support for radio networks.  Tim Dockendorf, Communications & Control Systems Administrator for East River, needed to find a solution for the challenging communications environment in South Dakota.  “East River manages the dispatch for our company and other electrical coops in South Dakota.” says Mr. Dockendorf.  “We have a Tait DMR III network which we need to use to ensure communications across our region, providing real-time dependable visibility of our mobile work-force. Other options don’t provide enough coverage.  TruFleet gave us the solution, plus all the geolocation tracking features we really needed. TALLYMATICS’ performance in addressing our requirements has given us the confidence that the TruFleet.Cloud solution will be able to adapt to our future vision as well.  The transition has been easy and delivered on its promises.”

TALLYMATICS worked with RACOM Critical Communications to deliver the solution to East River.  “RACOM has worked with East River and its partner electrical cooperatives for a long time, having helped them deploy their radio network.” Said Scott Zaputil, Chief Operating Officer of RACOM.  “They had a GeoLocation partner that could not longer support the radio network, so, knowing the TruFleet.Cloud product was now integrated with radio networks, we quickly reached out to TALLYMATICS, who are one of our mobile application partners.  It was an easy proposition, and TALLYMATICS and RACOM were able to satisfy all of East River’s needs.”
