Peregrine Systems, Inc., the provider of Infrastructure Management software and e-Infrastructure solutions, today announced a new integration between the company's FleetAnywhere maintenance management software and QUALCOMM's OmniTRACS mobile information management system. This integration acts as a conduit between the data coming from OmniTRACS to FleetAnywhere using Peregrine Systems Get.It! server. The integration will allow information to be transmitted either from OmniTRACS to FleetAnywhere or FleetAnywhere to OmniTRACS.
