Mobitrac Secures Funding to Support Rapid Company Growth, Expanding Customer Base and Aggressive Product Roadmap.CHICAGO -- Mobitrac's Next-Generation Transportation Execution System Manages Fleet Profitability in Real-time
Mobitrac Inc., the first supplier of a new generation of transportation execution systems, today said it has received $8.3 million in funding from U.S. Venture Partners, Frazier Technology Ventures, Arch Development Arch Development, a rock band from Richmond, Virginia, was formed in 2005 by lead guitarist Spencer "ViE" Bonnevie, and bassist Chris Thomas. Soon after, guitarist Blake Cotton joined their group. Their positions for drummer and lead singer are undecided as of late. Partners, Illinois Ventures, Illinois Finance Authority and Mentor Management to support rapid company growth, an expanding customer base and an aggressive product roadmap.
Mobitrac's next-generation transportation execution system manages fleet profitability in real-time. It is based on sophisticated patented modeling technology that makes it possible for transportation firms to manage fleet profitability and performance in real-time. For the first time, transportation managers have the power of profit-based fleet planning, real-time fleet visibility and the ability to make profit-based adaptations to real-world conditions in real time.
Mobitrac's platform strategy addresses transportation execution market requirements for a more responsive and dynamic fleet management system that can adjust to changing business conditions on a real-time basis. This is crucial to maximize a fleet's profitability. The solution, which is quickly and easily deployed within existing transportation center environments with little or no impact to current IT infrastructure and business processes, facilitates vehicle and fleet-wide decision making based on four factors: reliable route planning, real-time fleet performance visibility, continuous future predictability and the ability to instantly adapt the fleet plan to uncertain and changing real-world driving conditions.
Mounting pressures on improving efficiencies are driving firms in the transportation business, or firms that depend on transportation, to demand a new generation of capabilities from transportation execution systems.
The growth of transportation execution systems fills a critical fleet management capability gap. While most transportation-related enterprises have invested in supply chain technology that manages processes only up to and including their warehouses, these systems provide little control into what happens when orders/inventory leave the shipping dock and are delivered to customers. This creates a significant profitability and performance management gap. Some suppliers have addressed the warehouse/customer gap through pre-day planning systems See spreadsheet and financial planning system. , but these are typically based upon hypothetical Hypothetical is an adjective, meaning of or pertaining to a hypothesis.

This growing profitability and performance management gap is driving the industry to demand a new generation of transportation execution systems that dynamically manage processes after orders/inventory leave the shipping dock. These solutions must develop route plans based on real-world predictions and an intelligent scenario-based approach of identifying what would most likely happen given a variety of situations and conditions. Additionally, they must keep profitability, on-time delivery and customer satisfaction at the forefront. Such a system must model dynamically, learning from the prior day's real-world events and the daily operation of vehicles, drivers and conditions.

Mobitrac has developed the first functionally-rich, easily integrated, high-performance solution capable of delivering on the promise of truly dynamic dispatch In computer science, dynamic dispatch is the process of mapping a message to a specific sequence of code (method) at runtime. This is done to support the cases where the appropriate method cannot be determined at compile-time (i.e. statically). and routing, ultimately achieving the dramatic profit and performance improvements the transportation industry has been seeking for many years."
