Main Features of Our Integration:
1. Automated Trailer Odometer Update
Our solution, MIR-RT automatically gets the trailer’s odometer from TGI, which allows better monitoring of maintenance schedules on all equipment and provides cost per distance traveled statistics.
2. Geofencing Integration
In MIR-RT, Fleet Maintenance Managers can see a list of the tasks to complete on units (whether they are preventive or corrective) and with this integration they can also see in real-time which trailers are available in any of their yards. This feature allows them to take a proactive approach to maintenance.
