Phillips Connect Recognized by Heavy Duty Trucking as a Top Product Introduced During 2020

Newport Beach, CA (March 16, 2021) The Smart7™ Remote Pre√ from Phillips Connect has been recognized by Heavy Duty Trucking with a spot on their Top 20 list for products introduced in 2020. Each year, Heavy Duty Trucking selects their Top 20 Products for their innovation, ability to address important industry issues, and their potential to improve a fleet’s bottom line.

Phillips Connect’s Smart7™ Remote Pre√, powered by an on-board battery, delivers a full scan of trailer status and health, even when tractor power is unavailable.  It sends immediate responses and allows fleet operators to review trailer diagnostic.  With the ability to view the trailer’s status remotely, fleet operators can dispatch healthy assets and reroute flagged assets for scheduled maintenance.

Phillips Connect is a stand-alone company within the Phillips Technologies Group portfolio of companies.  Products from Phillips Industries have secured a spot on HDT’s Top 20 list multiple times since HDT began recognizing suppliers with this award in 2011. Rob Phillips, president and CEO of Phillips Industries and founder of Phillips Connect, commented about this latest recognition of Phillips’ product innovation, “HDT’s Top 20 Award is one we strive to win every year because we understand the criteria they use rewards solution-oriented innovations, which is our defining product development principle.  Now, with the Phillips Connect total telematics solutions for trailers, we are continuing that model. Thanks to all the hard work of all at Phillips Connect and to those at HDT who again recognized our company.”

Most products created by Phillips Connect are designed to operate in an open platform, that can interface with non-PCT telematics gateways and with any supplier sensor, or with Phillips Connect supplied sensors or a combination of both.  Phillips Connect has a complete line of intelligent products to monitor a fleet’s most valuable assets, providing real-time data, analytics, and insights. Phillips Connect provides the optimal solutions

for individual fleets to improve ROI, reduce fuel costs and roadside violations, improve driver retention and predict issues before they happen. All Phillips Connect hardware is 4G LTE compatible.
