Stemco, SkyBitz to offer mileage reports
Feb 1, 2007 12:00 PM
BAT RF by Stemco and SkyBitz have teamed up to offer mileage readings in conjunction with real-time trailer tracking for commercial fleets and trailer leasing companies. By partnering together, SkyBitz and Stemco will provide a direct interface between their primary product lines to enable accurate mileage readings for every trailer.
Using a wireless module installed with the SkyBitz GLS 200 trailer-tracking unit, the Stemco TracBAT wireless hubodometer transmits mileage updates, along with the vehicle location data, to the SkyBitz InSight web site. These TracBAT mileage reports can easily be downloaded into Microsoft Excel for customer billing and preventive maintenance scheduling.
Roni Taylor, executive vice-president for SkyBitz, said, “This value-added capability is especially attractive to trailer leasing companies because they can now run mileage reports each month to bill their customers without having to physically read the hubodometers.”
Stemco and SkyBitz are also planning to introduce interfaces for other critical sensor applications that monitor key vehicle components for predictive equipment maintenance.
