CalAmp and PluService Transform the Management of Public and Private Transport Vehicles
Innovative, Predictive Maintenance Solution Leverages Telematics to Make Bus Fleet Management Smarter
CalAmp, a global technology solutions pioneer transforming the mobile connected economy, announced its subsidiary, LoJack Italia, and PluService, an Italian-based leader in enterprise resource planning (ERP) for the mobility sector, have launched an innovative telematics service designed to transform the maintenance and management of public and private transport vehicles. This new service aims to make bus maintenance smarter and prevent mechanical breakdowns, enabling more timely and efficient repairs with less cost.
The LoJack Connect technology gives transport companies the ability to monitor the health status of their vehicles in real-time and promptly notifies them if a malfunction occurs. The system provides logistics managers with the information necessary to make appropriate operating decisions about whether a bus needs to be returned for regular maintenance or kept completely out of service due to mechanical problems. LoJack Connect helps shorten the time for diagnosis and repair, thus avoiding more serious failures as well as inefficiencies and problems related to recovery and transport of passengers.
“The collaboration with LoJack has allowed us to develop an important value add to our workshop management product,” said Giorgio Fanesi Managing, director of PluService. “This technology creates an effective tool offering a substantial reduction in maintenance costs. We have confirmed our mission to design and develop software services aimed at improving the income statement of our clients.”
