Phillips Connect Technologies (PCT) this week announced the availability of its expandable asset tracking devices on the Geotab Marketplace.
Geotab, the world’s leading connected vehicle company for smart cities and fleets, offers an extensive ecosystem of valuable, business-focused applications and add-ons via the Geotab Marketplace, which helps provide businesses with the tools needed to better manage their fleets, PCT says. With the addition of Phillips Connect Technologies on the Geotab Marketplace, PCT says Geotab customers can now access a suite of solutions that help to maximize driver time through enhanced asset visibility and utilization.
“Geotab’s open platform is a perfect fit for our solutions,” says Rob Phillips, CEO, Phillips Connect Technologies. “Together, we provide a true connected vehicle offering for the transportation industry, providing fleet managers with access to one platform to manage all of their assets in real-time which helps deliver consistent results to their bottom line.”
PCT says its robust solutions, available for all non-powered asset types, deliver unparalleled utilization metrics, helping to improve vehicle safety, and drive financial ROI. Base model solutions are expandable, which allows the asset owner to deploy additional sensors that can increase value customized around the owner’s specific needs.
And by leveraging patented technology embedded in more than 8 million IoT devices deployed on vehicles in operation today, PCT says it has built a suite of state-of-the-art asset tracking solutions that can help solve critical problems and provide a significant return on investment for the transportation industry. Designed specifically for harsh operating environments, all PCT solutions are extremely easy to install, IP67 rated, and will endure real-world abuse that non-powered assets see every day.
The company says users can locate these assets, maximize productivity, and give their customers a live view into their trailers, containers, and chassis. In addition to location tracking, PCT can integrate multiple sensors that monitor cargo status and add visibility of health status in real-time, providing valuable information to customers to help them find efficiencies and lower their overall costs.
