Application Optimizes Omnitracs’ Fault Monitoring With Immediate Information And Expert Guidance For Engine Maintenance And Repair
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (March 24, 2015) – Omnitracs LLC, a leading provider of fleet management solutions to transportation and logistics companies, and Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI), a leading independent manufacturer of diesel and natural gas engines, today announced that Cummins Connected Diagnostics application is now available to customers using Omnitracs’ Mobile Computing Platforms (MCPs) and its Fault Monitoring application’s Extended Faults add-on.
Omnitracs is one of the first mobile fleet management technology providers in the commercial trucking industry to support the Connected Diagnostics solution, enabling customers to access near-real-time engine diagnostic information, for improved management of maintenance and repairs. Connected Diagnostics leverages data from Omnitracs’ Fault Monitoring application, combined with an easy-to-understand notification report developed by Cummins, to provide near-real-time alerts for all available engine fault codes. Connected Diagnostics optimizes the features of the Fault Monitoring application with immediate diagnosis and prioritization of engine system fault alerts. It delivers engine information and expert guidance to fleet maintenance and operations management within seconds, informing them of root causes and enabling them to take proactive steps on fixing what’s most important, in order to reduce fleet maintenance and repair costs.
“Today, fleets are easily inundated with an immense amount of truck information that they don’t always have the resources to interpret, which limits its usefulness,” said Richard Glasmann, Vice President – OEM Strategy, Sales and Marketing, Omnitracs. “Cummins Connected Diagnostics enabled by Omnitracs’ Fault Monitoring application will support a proactive approach to engine maintenance and repair while enhancing the value that we deliver to our mutual customers. This collaboration further underscores Omnitracs’ commitment to developing critical solutions with industry leaders that help fleets operate more efficiently and safely.”
“The collaboration with Omnitracs demonstrates the seamless integration that Cummins has taken with its Connected Solutions suite,” added John Malina, Executive Director – Product Connectivity Business, Cummins. “Connected Diagnostics can now instantly benefit Omnitracs and Cummins customers with genuine Cummins guidance in response to transmitted engine system fault data.”
