PressurePro and TrackPoint Systems Announce Partnership
March 11, 2014
TMC, NASHVILLE - Advantage PressurePro and TrackPoint Systems announced their partnership at the Technology & Maintenance Council’s Annual Meeting. The alliance, formed to allow integration of the two technologies, sets the groundwork to launch the market’s first real-time TPMS solutions for untethered trailers.
Formerly, receiving real-time tire condition and performance reports from untethered equipment was limited, due to power and communication restrictions.
By directly embedding PressurePro’s technology, TrackPoint has continued to push the innovation of asset management solutions.
“Dispatching drivers to trailers that have moved location or have tires in need of repair can be time-consuming, costly, and a nuisance to drivers,” said Alan Smith, president and CEO of TrackPoint Systems. “By bringing together PressurePro’s wireless TPMS solutions with TrackPoint’s solar-powered untethered trailer tracking devices, we can alert fleet managers and dispatchers in real-time not only when a trailer is moved, but also if a specific tire is in need of repair—even when the trailer is not connected to vehicle power.”
