HERNDON, Va., Oct. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SkyBitz, a leader in IoT telematics solutions, today announced a strategic technology partnership with Omnitracs, the global pioneer of fleet management solutions to transportation and logistics companies.

This technology will improve their internal operation so they can focus on providing the best external experience for their customers.”

With this new offering, customers of Omnitracs and Skybitz will benefit from the following:

  • Access to a more robust range of solutions, greatly expanding the scope of assets and insights offered.
  • Communication between in-cab telematics devices and trailer telematics units, providing drivers and back-office personnel immediate verification of tractor-trailer connections and catalyzing real-time data sharing between systems.
