OTR Tire and Rim Management Solution
New TreadStat analytics increase off-the-road productivity
Bridgestone’s off-the-road (OTR) tire and rim management software, TreadStat, is a performance tracking solution which has been improved to include several new features that support the evolving needs of the global OTR industry.
The TreadStat system uses industry-relevant analytics to help customers manage the lifecycle cost of their tires for increased efficiency and profitability.
The TreadStat tool features a new, innovative user interface that increases productivity through customizable dashboards that deliver rich analytics directly to users’ computers, tablets or smartphones anywhere in the world. Efficiency has been increased by technology improvements, such as additional multilingual support, convenient application program interfaces, instantaneous data conversion and integration with the B-TAG tire pressure and temperature management system from Bridgestone. Advanced analytics also help operations of any size or location maximize tire usage, manage inventory, improve safety and minimize expenses.
“The next-generation TreadStat tool...uses integrated technology to serve global businesses of any size,” said Taylor Cole, president, Commercial Off-the-Road, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations. “Having a complete and real-time view of every tire’s status can reduce one of a fleet’s largest annual operating expenses, tire and rim management, to significantly increase the bottom line.”
Forecasting, work scheduling and budgeting also are improved by the data-driven analytics platform. The TreadStat tool is accessible through the TreadStat Mobile Inspection app. Users can quickly and easily:
• Conduct vehicle inspections online or offline, saving time, eliminating paper and improving productivity.
• Conveniently note critical exceptions requiring immediate action and share data via email to reduce operating costs.
• Manage a global operation via one system to unify data-driven tire and rim management decisions for increased efficiency.
