Phillips Connect Wows Fleets with its Smart-Trailer Software

Newport Beach, CA (April 27, 2021) Phillips Connect’s cloud software was designed by fleets to provide simple GPS tracking and real-time visibility of trailer sensors.  Easy to create customized dashboards with information that’s most important to each fleet, with the ability to easily diagnose and understand what’s happening with each trailer or the entire fleet of trailers.

Easy scroll and search filters provide fleet maintenance personnel with the ability to track component health, and perform maintenance based on actual wear and tear versus mileage or time, which can save fleets thousands per trailer over their useful lives.  Phillips Connect’s maps provide high detail satellite visibility and location accuracy within 3 meters, and can manage over 100,000 assets on a single dashboard.

Phillips Connect’s powerful cloud software customization tool lets each fleet setup their system to send an alert when they want to be alerted— whether it’s based on high speed, a flickering light, low liftgate batteries, tire pressures that are below 93PSI, you name it… the entire system is easily programmable with green, yellow, orange, and red alerts that will appear when triggered.

“Our cloud platform was designed entirely around flexibility and letting our customers be as unique as they need to be without losing functionality,” explained Jessica Smith, director of business intelligence and analytics.  “We don’t define how our customers leverage their data or manage their fleets – we just ensure that they can.”

With Phillips Connect’s cloud software, each fleet chooses how sensor health is communicated and what situations need to be reported – from debugged ABS fault codes to troubleshooting guides on how to resolve active issues.  Additionally, maintenance schedules can be driven by the data and trailers can be managed inside geofences with quick visibility to how many are unhealthy and how long they have been stationary.
