NASHVILLE – February 28, 2017 — PeopleNet® (www.peoplenetonline.com), a Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) Company and leading provider of fleet mobility technology, and Noregon® (www.noregon.com), the industry-recognized vehicle data experts, are extending their relationship to deliver a new, real-time health and safety monitoring solution for all heavy duty truck makes and models. The initial focus of the collaboration will be to deliver a PeopleNet fault intelligence solution, with integrated predictive analytics, as part of the ConnectedFleet™ platform.
Noregon has been a PeopleNet technology partner since 2009. The collaboration will build on Noregon’s extensive expertise in vehicle data and telematics technologies, and PeopleNet’s core competency in mobility and predictive analytics. Together, the companies will forge a robust set of fault guidance solutions for fleets running more than one model of tractor.
“Predictive analytics applied to remote diagnostics has the potential to transform how fleets manage vehicle uptime and maintenance,” said Tom Fansler, President of Transportation Analytics for PeopleNet. “Our goal is to provide solutions that enable this transformation and change the way our customers think about monitoring their vehicles in real-time.”
“We routinely heard from fleets that the marketplace lacked a comprehensive solution to turn their vehicle data into valuable information,” said Bill Hathaway, Founder and CEO at Noregon. “Noregon is extremely excited to work with PeopleNet to offer customers an unprecedented look into the real-time health and safety status of their vehicles.”
The extended relationship with Noregon was announced at the American Trucking Associations Technology & Maintenance Council 2017 Annual Meeting in Nashville, Tenn.
