Qualcomm Wireless Business Solutions (www.qualcomm.com), a supplier of wireless in-cab data solutions, has teamed with Integrated Decision Support Corp. (IDSC) (www.idscnet.com), a developer of decision support software, to offer in-cab service to aid carriers of every stripe to save on fuel costs.
A fuel query component delivers general pricing data on fuel stops in the area of the driver's present location. A trip planning feature offers a complete-fuel optimization plan that includes routing, recommended stops for fuel and purchasing quantities.
Drivers can initiate the fuel service solution from their cabs and receive results automatically. Companies can modify the program on a secure web site so that it includes discounts and preferred fuel stops.
