PressurePro’s advanced Tire Performance Management Solutions (TPMS) bring fleets of all kinds and sizes the real-time tire performance data needed to increase fuel efficiency, decrease downtime, extend tire life, improve handling and braking, streamline maintenance and more. 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. When used in conjunction with PressurePro’s Connect software, fleets experience unmatched TPMS reporting and analysis tools. “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, 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 low profile, fully self-contained, ruggedized device operates over the 100% 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 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, EVP, Sales & Business Development. “It’s the one and only GPS tracker that works ‘Forever, Everywhere’. Our goal was to make it seamless for Geotab fleet managers to add their asset visibility.” 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 AP3 has intrinsic safe C1D2 certification and is licensed for sale and use in many countries.
