Tire Stamp’s New Software Uses a Fleet’s Tire Data to Track Savings
Tire Stamp Inc. has released a computer interface that displays the savings commercial truck and bus fleets realize by using the company’s TireVigil Cloud software.
“Never before have fleets been able to see the financial impact their tire maintenance has on their bottom line using their own, real data in such a simple and clear way,” says Tire Stamp President Peggy Fisher.
The new Savings Dashboard provides an instant snapshot of a fleet’s key tire cost metrics, the annual and current month savings generated by vehicles equipped with Tire Stamp’s TireVigil Cloud software, and the projected savings attainable by deploying TireVigil throughout the entire fleet.
The results are calculated every day using TireVigil Cloud’s algorithms and analytics based on each fleet’s actual tire data. It uses industry accepted calculations made available through the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) 2013 Report on tire pressure monitoring systems.
The new Savings Dashboard complements the existing Maintenance Dashboard that visually summarizes a fleet’s tire maintenance performance based on real-time metrics generated from data accumulated from each vehicle equipped with the TireVigil Cloud solution.
Additional information the new Savings Dashboard provides at a glance includes the different areas where savings are being achieved and is broken down in labor, breakdowns, fuel consumption, tread wear and operations.
A bar chart depicts the number of prevented breakdowns on TireVigil monitored vehicles and the number that could be prevented on vehicles that have yet to be deployed. A gauge indicates if the number of breakdowns is acceptable or needs improvement.
A Current Vehicle Alert Listing displays vehicles with tire alerts listed in order of service priority based on the time remaining before a tire reaches a critical level that jeopardizes its health.
This is knowledge that has never been available to fleets before. A map shows where these vehicles are and their current alert status.
“The Savings Dashboard is a tool that operations, maintenance, and upper management can use to prevent disruptions in operations, improve tire maintenance and positively impact the bottom line,” says Fisher.
