ROCHELLE PARK, NJ -- ORBCOMM Inc. (Nasdaq:ORBC), a global provider of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, today announced the availability of its new heavy equipment telematics solution, which includes the dual-mode PT 7000 device and the FleetEdge web application for monitoring and control of equipment used in the construction, mining, rail and utility industries. By utilizing ORBCOMM’s comprehensive solution, customers gain complete visibility of their heavy equipment fleet and are able to manage their operations more efficiently with access to near-real-time asset data and analytics.
ORBCOMM’s ruggedized PT 7000, which is available as a cellular or dual-mode satellite-cellular device, provides accurate status and position information along with key operational metrics, such as fuel consumption and engine hours, so Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), dealers and end users can proactively manage their fleet worldwide. The PT 7000 works with ORBCOMM’s newly enhanced FleetEdge web application, delivering comprehensive dashboards, advanced reports and analytics, custom charts, alerts, self-service administrative functions, and more.
The ORBCOMM solution provides valuable equipment position, status and performance reports that enable customers to track asset movement to minimize theft and loss, schedule service alerts to enable preventative maintenance, monitor fuel usage to optimize fuel consumption, and more. Active alerts, including out-of-spec sensor readings, such as loss of oil pressure or high coolant temperature, can be automatically sent to a mobile device to ensure timely corrective measures are taken.
“The powerful combination of ORBCOMM’s PT 7000 and the depth of information provided by FleetEdge offers our heavy equipment customers a complete fleet management solution with a strong return on investment,” said Marc Eisenberg, ORBCOMM’s Chief Executive Officer. “By leveraging detailed equipment reports and analytics, customers can make informed business decisions about their fleet, while improving maintenance management, reducing operational costs and gaining better equipment performance and uptime.”
FleetEdge is available through the ORBCOMMmobile app, enabling customers to manage their heavy equipment fleet on the go from any mobile device. ORBCOMM’s mobile app runs on both iOS and Android devices to facilitate easy access to near-real-time asset data and key metrics.
