Engine Data Alerts & Analysis module provides visibility into maintenance issues that could threaten driver, vehicle health

Command Alkon’s TrackIt system now features an Engine Data Alerts & Analysis (EDAA) module designed to deliver real-time insights for fleet asset management that improve the health, safety and performance of commercial vehicles.

“EDAA system capabilities include remote diagnostics, real-time alerts, shop and driver action plans, fleet health and safety scoring, and other actionable vehicle information,” said Larry Curtis, vice president of telematics at Command Alkon. “A significant advantage of operating with this module is that it enables operations to proactively maintain their vehicles; mechanics can receive alerts if a truck needs preventative maintenance before it becomes a larger issue.”

TrackIt’s EDAA module enables preventive maintenance schedules, ensuring users can identify issues quickly and stay current on routine service tasks, the company said. The system has the ability to create automatic reports notifying the shop of what vehicles need to be worked on that day, what maintenance is coming due, and what is overdue and needs to be attended to immediately.

“Engine Data Analysis & Alerts also provides the fleet management staff with insight into what is going on with the vehicle directly from a mobile device, allowing employees to analyze the issue and determine whether diagnostic testing is required,” said John Boatman, operations manager at Command Alkon. “The ability to triage vehicles on the fly saves mechanics time and increases productivity by making sure focus is put on trucks that need servicing.”

Added Paul Hardison, director of transportation at 37 Trucking: “We’re working on trucks when they’re not generating revenue; we can work on them at the end of the day while they are shut down. Having that visibility creates an enormous ability to maintain our trucks, keep them operational, keep them on the road as much as we possibly can, and plan ahead.”
