Geotab has added new partner solutions geared toward heavy-duty fleets to the Geotab Marketplace: Pulsar Informatics, AssetLink and Advantage PressurePro.
PressurePro’s Tire Performance Management Solutions (TPMS) provide real-time tire performance data needed to increase fuel efficiency, decrease downtime, extend tire life, improve handling and braking, streamline maintenance and more, according to the company. With complete integration to Geotab’s platform, PressurePro arms users with real time readings and alerts both in-cab and remote, unlocking unmatched capability for drivers and fleet managers to identify and correct tire issues before they become costly or dangerous, the company says.
“TPMS allows fleets to use a single technology to drive down costs and inefficiencies across several of their largest expenses,” stated Edward Lutsko, technology manager for PressurePro. “PressurePro simplifies and streamlines tire maintenance, arming fleets with a powerful tool that identifies tire performance trends, taking their tire maintenance programs from reactive to proactive.”
AssetLink’s AssetPack-3 (AP3) is a battery-powered, solar-recharging, two-way satellite GPS asset tracker and sensor interface, specially designed to track unpowered industrial assets. The device operates over the global Iridium satellite network and is over-the-air (OTA) command capable. The AP3 is pre-integrated into the MyGeotab platform as a hardware add-on for unpowered assets.
The AP3 is a ready-to-deploy, global tracking solution that can be installed and activated in under 30 seconds, lasts the lifetime of most industrial equipment (7-10+ years), and is designed to survive long low sun conditions, the company says. The AP3 has intrinsic safe C1D2 certification and is licensed for sale and use in many countries.
“The AP3 enables reliable tracking and monitoring of any fixed or mobile asset, anywhere in the world—containers, trailers, flatbeds, heavy equipment and more, in numerous heavy industries,” said Scott Rosenzweig, AssetLink’s executive vice president of sales and business development. “Our goal was to make it seamless for Geotab fleet managers to add their asset visibility.”
Pulsar Informatics’ Trucking Fatigue Meter provides a real-time picture of the fatigue risks across your fleet. Sampling HOS data in Geotab’s ELD system throughout the day, this add-in monitors driver fatigue risk levels. Trucking Fatigue Meter offers trucking companies unparalleled safety benefits for proactive fatigue risk management of the fleet, identification of driver education opportunities, and a means of post processing safety critical events to establish likely causal factors to use in developing improvement initiatives, the company says.
“If driver fatigue risk keeps you up at night, Trucking Fatigue Meter will go a long way to help you identify fatigued drivers on the road and provide insight into the key issues that are increasing your risk,” said Daniel Mollicone Ph.D, chief executive officer of Pulsar Informatics Inc.
