PeopleNet, a provider of fleet mobility technology, has introduced PeopleNet Fault Intelligence as part of its ConnectedFleet platform. This new solution provides real-time vehicle health and safety information and fault guidance.
Fault Intelligence is powered by Noregon, a PeopleNet technology partner since 2009. The solution builds on Noregon’s extensive expertise in vehicle data and telematics technologies and PeopleNet’s core competency in mobility and analytics.
“Keeping trucks and drivers moving is a constant challenge for any fleet,” said Eric Witty, vice president, product at PeopleNet. “Fault Intelligence provides actionable information to maintain productivity by preventing unscheduled service events, improving vehicle utilization and helping to ensure a fleet stays on schedule.”
Fault Intelligence gives insight into the health of vehicles within a fleet, regardless of make or model. This information is presented in an easy-to-understand format, allowing dispatchers and maintenance personnel to make informed decisions quickly in order to maximize the efficiency of their operations.
“We routinely heard from fleets that the marketplace lacked a comprehensive solution to turn their vehicle data into valuable information,” said Bill Hathaway, founder and CEO at Noregon. “Noregon is extremely excited to work with PeopleNet to offer customers an unprecedented look into the real-time health and safety status of their vehicles.”
Fault Intelligence gives users real-time, detailed fault data from each vehicle, including a safety score, health score and location information to better manage overall fleet operations. This fully configurable solution also allows users to customize fault management options and create action plans that align with their company’s processes and procedures related to vehicle maintenance.
“This solution is a direct result of input from the fleets we serve,” said Witty. “Since they often run more than one model of tractor, many are looking for a universal solution that’s integrated within the PeopleNet system.”
Fault Intelligence was introduced at American Trucking Association’s (ATA) Management Conference & Exhibition (MCE), held from Oct. 21-25 in Orlando, Florida. Additional information about PeopleNet’s real-time diagnostics solutions can be found here.
