Now you can use location tech to maintain your fleet's tires
Goodyear is incorporating HERE location services into its fleet management tool that can help reduce tire-related breakdowns by 90%.
One of the biggest causes of downtime for vehicles is tire issues, whether they are caused by debris on the road, poor maintenance or any other reason. To that end, Goodyear has a one-stop fleet management solution called Goodyear Total Mobility. It combines data from Goodyear's Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with HERE location services.
Downtime is an issue that can keep fleet managers up at night. One survey in the UK found that vehicle off-road costs come to an average of £6,000 (US$8,128) per year. No wonder fleet bosses are keen to avoid it.
Goodyear TPMS is an advanced sensor and predictive algorithm solution that helps fleets avoid up to 90% of tire-related breakdowns. With HERE location services, fleet operators and Goodyear service providers in Europe can find a vehicle in need of service or road assistance within a few meters and navigate them to the nearest maintenance station.
“In daily fleet operations, every minute counts." — Grégory Boucharlat, Vice President for Commercial Europe, Goodyear.
Goodyear has also been using the HERE SDK (Software Development Kit) to provide a mobile application for commercial drivers. HERE SDK is a set of programming interfaces that gives access to the rich portfolio of HERE services, such as in-vehicle navigation, traffic alerts, transit information and fleet management features.
Location is key to reducing downtime and its associated costs.
“HERE location technology is bringing clear added value to our Goodyear Total Mobility customers. In daily fleet operations, every minute counts and being able to locate a vehicle in a timely and precise manner is key to minimizing downtime. In case of a service need, this can be managed in a user-friendly manner — via a mobile application for both drivers and dispatchers. Working with HERE allows us to offer state-of-the-art data solutions that drive efficient and sustainable results," said Grégory Boucharlat, Vice President for Commercial Europe at Goodyear.
Here's to a 2022 with less time spent off the road.
