Truckcom is launching a new version of its fleet management software that is based entirely in the cloud, with no need for users to install any software on their own PCs or servers. Users just open a web page in their internet browser and they’re straight into using the new system.
"When we first developed Truckcom a few years ago, we didn’t feel that a cloud based system was capable of doing everything our customers needed" says Hugh Wightwick, one of Truckcom’s founders – "but since then there’s been a lot of progress in cloud technology, and internet connection quality for our users is also improving steadily, so we feel the time is right to do this now. Our new system is based on Microsoft Silverlight, which is a very powerful platform – it lets users do all the things Truckcom already did before – fleet tracking, transport management, electronic POD, vehicle checks, and much more – but all within the user’s browser".
A big advantage of the new cloud based system is that it’s now very easy for Truckcom to offer 30 day free trials, leading to new low Pay-As-You-Go online prices. To help promote this new approach the company will be offering a range of promotional discounts this spring, including a unique discount offer to visitors to its stand at the CV show in April at the NEC.
