RWI integrates Blue Tree
R:COM system with TMW
Nov 1, 2012 10:13 AM
Blue Tree Systems Inc announced that refrigerated carrier RWI Transportation, a member company of the Castellini Group, has integrated the R:COM Temperature Management system with TMW’s operating software to deliver live information from the reefer unit to front-line operations.
By exploiting the flexibility in Blue Tree’s R:COM architecture, RWI’s staff can easily extract reefer operating data such as set-point, return air temperature, and operating mode, and populate screens in TMW so their operations personnel have one complete view of the entire fleet.
Among the architectural advantages leveraged by RWI is the ability to host the Blue Tree R:COM system in-house. In a marketplace where so many vendors offer web-based systems only, which are subject to integration protocols under the control of the vendor, Blue Tree also provides a “customer-hosted” option that provides database access, documentation, and support when needed. In addition to integration flexibility, hosting the R:COM server behind its firewall, in its own data center, provides RWI with total control and command of their data.
The R:COM system provides live updates of refrigeration unit settings, operating mode, equipment alarm codes, fuel level, and cargo temperatures. Temperature out-of-range conditions and refrigeration unit shutdown alarms are immediately sent via e-mail and SMS. All detailed temperature location data, unit settings, door events, and arrival/departure times are recorded in a one-click printable format.
This system also features clear front-line user visibility with one-click drill-downs, one-click e-mail and data export capability, and integration to transportation management software packages.
