Mar 1, 2011 12:08 PM
SkyBitz announced that Tankstar USA Inc has chosen SkyBitz as its tracking system for company fleets.
Tankstar USA companies selected the SkyBitz Falcon Series GXT1000 to track its fleet of tanks that service the cement industry in order to gain better visibility. The result is improved asset allocation, logistics, and security for customers. Tankstar USA company operators can view near-real-time location information and run customizable management and operational reports for each tank in the fleet through the SkyBitz InSight web service. SkyBitz Insight allows for automated alerts through the use of SkyBitz Sky Fences, which outline customized geo-perimeters around customer landmarks. Tankstar USA can now see its company fleet’s daily entire chain of events—from the arrival and departure from customer sites to all events occurring in between.
Jack Schwerman, president of Tankstar USA, said, “In the ready-mix concrete industry, the loads are time-sensitive and need to be moved quickly. After testing an initial set of mobile terminals with our tank equipment, we plan to expand this to our other equipment.”
The SkyBitz Falcon Series GXT1000 operates on a terrestrial GSM network and is a durable and multifunctional device ideal for security and management of assets in high-integrity applications. Its customizable features capture the exact data needed to monitor stop and idle time, mileage driven, arrival/departure timing, and sky-fence adherence.
