Trimble, PressurePro sign OEM, distribution agreement
Nov 1, 2012 12:00 PM
Trimble and Advantage PressurePro announced that they had signed an exclusive OEM and distribution agreement for integrated tire pressure monitoring (TPMS) solutions. Under the agreement, Advantage PressurePro will provide Trimble with an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) differentiated product based upon its PressurePro TPMS platform.
Trimble will leverage the information from the PressurePro TPMS in its VisionLink integrated fleet, asset, and site productivity management solution for construction contractors.
“The addition of PressurePro TPMS sensors to VisionLink, our fleet, asset and site productivity management solutions allows us to offer contractors the ability to better manage their fleets and realize greater efficiencies and savings than before”, says Roz Buick, vice-president, Trimble Heavy Civil Construction division.
Phillip Zaroor, president and chief executive officer of PressurePro, adds: “PressurePro is proud to partner with Trimble to integrate our market leading Tire Pressure Monitoring technologies into Trimble's portfolio of heavy civil construction solutions.”
PressurePro's TPMS Sensors provide operators and fleet managers with real time tire pressure reports and information, as well as alerts to low- and high-pressure and temperature events. Importing this data into VisionLink from Trimble provides equipment and fleet managers with the real-time knowledge needed to extend tire life, increase fuel efficiency, decrease downtime, improve operator and driver safety and better plan vehicle and heavy equipment maintenance.
Possessing the ability to read over vehicle and trailer networks and capitalizing on integrated solutions contractors gain remote monitoring abilities that help equipment and fleet managers revolutionize their tire maintenance programs.
PressurePro TPMS sensors integrated with VisionLink from Trimble will be available from Trimble's global network of SITECH technology dealers.
