Trinium Keeps on Trucking with Mobile Interface from mrc

Chalk up another win for mrc, the developer of Web application development tools for IBM i and other platforms. Last week, the Chicago, Illinois, company announced the roll-out of a new mobile interface that it helped build for trucking software provider Trinium Technologies.
Trinium-MC2 is a Web app that lets truck drivers communicate with their Trinium dispatch system directly from any smartphone or tablet. Dispatch instructions can be sent, received, acknowledged, and completed by drivers on their smartphones or tablets, the vendors say.
Trinium says it already has more than 1,000 users of M2C, which mrc and Trinium built in three weeks using m-Power. “mrc has enabled us to quickly meet the growing demands of our customers in offering mobile applications that are compatible with smart phones,” said Trinium vice president Dennis Lane. “Now any truck driver with a smart phone can access our mobile Web application, Trinium-MC2, to view and update their dispatch assignments, saving time and money for the driver and trucking company.”
Trinium’s dispatching system runs on Windows, Unix, and Linux. m-Power generates platform-independent Java code that can also be used with IBM i servers.
