Decisiv introduces new Data Services business unit

Updated Oct 24, 2017

Decisiv introduces a new Data Services business focused on leveraging the unique capability of the Decisiv platform to bring together data from all aspects of a commercial asset throughout its lifecycle.

“Decisiv’s new Data Services business will help our commercial vehicle and heavy equipment fleet operator, OEM and service provider customers more effectively use data and analytics to optimize their businesses and realize a sustainable competitive advantage in their markets,” says Dick Hyatt, President and CEO of Decisiv. “Data and analytics capabilities, combined with cloud computing and Industrial Internet of Things (IIot) technologies, are the strategic weapons that empower users across a range of disciplines with actionable insights.”

Commercial assets and service supply ecosystems are undergoing enormous change, Hyatt says.

“Decisiv is launching a Data Services business to use its vast repository of commercial asset data and its platform’s proven communication and collaboration capabilities to enable real time visibility, tracking and reporting that leads to better, faster, smarter decisions throughout the service value chain,” he added. “Data produced at every step of the service supply chain by multiple parties needs to be analyzed and fed back into the system so service events are done in a smarter, faster, less expensive way.”

Joining Decisiv to lead its new Data Services business is Rob Bradenham. As vice president of Data Services he will focus on the development of offerings that fully utilize the advanced closed loop and fully integrated data capabilities of the Decisiv SRM platform.

“Decisiv brings together data from different sources in a way no other company can,” Bradenham says. “The base of data from commercial assets and from people involved in service events is growing. The analytics capabilities that our new Data Services business will provide can serve as a standard for the industry and ultimately improve service event time, technician and service provider performance, and the lifetime value of assets.”

Bradenham comes to Decisiv with significant experience in technology and operations in the industrial and high-tech industries. Recently at Caterpillar, he led efforts to help owners and operators increase the ROI in their assets by using data analytics and expert advisory services to make better maintenance and operations decisions.
