ORLANDO, Fla. — Design Interactive, a family owned and operated provider of augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR) training solutions for fleet maintenance personnel, vendors and OEMs, has released Remote Collaboration Video Calling (RCVC).

Used with AUGMENTOR, Design Interactive’s training solution for fleet maintenance personnel, RCVC connects technicians to expert sources and access to procedures in real time.

“With our Remote Collaboration Video Calling, technicians now have the ability when they are working on a truck to contact other technicians or experts and simultaneously see the procedures they need to execute in real time,” said Matt Johnston, division head, Commercial Solutions at Design Interactive. “With this new capability, the AUGMENTOR platform becomes a highly interactive device that speeds up the technician’s ability to solve a problem or complete a repair correctly.”

With RCVC technicians are instantly connected to several sources.

From other technicians, managers and training personnel, techs now have access to procedures, OEM and/or manufacturer’s technical center.  Also, while on a call, technicians can access procedures they need to execute repairs in real time.

Johnston said for suppliers gone are the days where you physically need to go to a facility to solve a problem.

“Remote Collaboration Video Calling can be used to provide training modules, and document advice,” he said. “Enterprises can also use the system to manage multiple calls or to follow up if call volume is high. Utilizing augmented reality, video- and computer-based technologies, technicians can be effectively trained regardless of their environment.  Allowing for consistent training as well as shorter repair and diagnostic times.”

AUGMENTOR also features a web portal for creating, editing and distributing training modules to Android, iOS, and the HoloLens quickly and effectively across multiple locations.

The new Remote Collaboration Video Calling feature for AUGMENTOR is now available on mobile devices and in the AUGMENTOR web portal, and a version for HoloLens headsets will be released in the in first quarter of 2020.

SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Trimble announced it has signed an agreement to acquire Kuebix, a transportation management system (TMS) provider and creator of North America’s largest connected shipping community. This acquisition will result in Trimble’s private and commercial carrier customers, including more than 1.3 North American trucks, to connect with Kuebix’s shipping company network of 21,000 carriers and companies.  The result, according to Trimble officials, will be a new platform for planning, executing and matching freight demand-capacity. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2020. Financial terms were not disclosed. Kuebix will operate within Trimble’s transportation sector of services.

“Combining Kuebix’s innovative platform and rapidly-growing community of shippers with Trimble’s history of innovation, strength and scale will provide a transformative transportation supply chain solution that creates new opportunities for collaboration throughout the logistics ecosystem,” said James Langley, senior vice president, Trimble Transportation. “This combination will help carriers uncover inefficiencies in their network, make better decisions, optimize operations and transform the way the transportation industry works.”

Today, shippers, carriers and intermediaries operate with what Trimble refers to as “fragmented TMS software.” Kuebix’s capabilities will allow for Trimble to break down technology barriers, enable actionable visibility and improve collaboration. A single logistics platform for all participants in the supply chain, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), is a multi-tenant, cloud platform allowing Trimble to optimize the entire logistics process from order management to financial settlement. Likewise, SaaS will improve efficiency and asset utilization for carriers and provide shippers access to expanded capacity and reduced costs.

“For more than a decade, Kuebix has served shippers with supply chains of all sizes and complexities, transparently connecting them directly to their carriers for the pricing, service levels and visibility they need to run their businesses,” said Dave Lemont, CEO of Kuebix. “We are excited to join Trimble and expand the investment in our platform to serve new audiences and increase collaboration and savings for shippers and carriers alike.”

“The combination of Trimble and Kuebix will accelerate the realization of our vision; a world where shippers, carriers and intermediaries leverage the same powerful TMS platform to provide the market with unprecedented levels of visibility and efficiency,” said Dan Clark, founder and president, Kuebix. “A single-platform TMS across all transportation modes will make it easier for shippers and carriers to plan their strategy, design an optimized transportation network, improve execution, and more accurately
