SEATTLE — Zonar, the leader in smart fleet technology, today announced the launch of its Fleet Health Solution Suite, including Zonar FaultIQ powered by Noregon.
FaultIQ provides real-time visibility to fault data from an entire vehicle with a recommended action plan regardless of the vehicle or asset manufacturer. In addition to FaultIQ, Zonar’s Fleet Health Solution Suite consists of a full range of diagnostic and monitoring offerings including, Cummins Connected Diagnostics with Connected Advisor, Zonar OTAir, Detroit Connect Virtual Technician SM, Detroit Connect Analytics and Zonar Ground Traffic Control Diagnostic Report, which further enable Zonar customers to have deeper, actionable insights into the performance and health of their vehicles and assets.
“We aim to make uptime more than a buzz word and deliver real-world, actionable solutions to keep our customers’ vehicles and assets operating when and where they need to be,” Gary Schmidt, senior vice president of OEM connected solutions at Zonar. “ELDs, hours of service changes and other regulations have moved the goal post on how many miles can be driven in a day and how long an asset can be utilized. Getting the most out of every minute and mile per vehicle and asset while extending their lifespan has never been more important.”
FaultIQ provides customers with an overview of issues affecting the health, safety, and performance status of fleet vehicles and assets. A dashboard view of the entire fleet shows prioritized vehicles and assets that require immediate attention, enabling easy evaluation of the fleet and quick decision-making. With FaultIQ anyone—from dispatchers to technicians—can gain the ability to drill down into pertinent information for each vehicle and asset to take specific action and make adjustments in real-time. In addition, health and safety scores calculated for each vehicle and asset further enable fleet managers with quick, actionable insights, allowing maintenance to address smaller issues before they become bigger ones.
“We’re excited to have our commercial vehicle diagnostic and repair software and data analytic solutions be part of Zonar’s Fleet Health Solutions Suite and expand into new markets, including pupil transportation,” said Dave Covington, chief technology officer at Noregon. “We know the industry is rapidly shifting to digital, connected solutions and Zonar shares our vision of using data to improve the way everyone within an organization makes decisions. Through this partnership, we’re not only helping customers become more efficient but also helping everyone stay safer on the road.”
