SkyBitz and Bat RF by Stemco announced an interface that will offer mileage readings in conjunction with real-time trailer tracking for commercial fleets and trailer leasing companies.

The two companies will provide a direct interface between their SkyBitz GLS 200 trailer-tracking unit and the Stemco TracBat wireless hubodometer to transmit mileage updates and vehicle location data to the SkyBitz InSight website. TracBat mileage reports can be downloaded into Microsoft Excel for customer billing as well as preventative maintenance scheduling.

“Through this alliance, SkyBitz is the first trailer-tracking provider to enable up-to-the-minute mileage with every real-time trailer-tracking report,” says Roni Taylor, executive vice president for SkyBitz. “This value-added capability is especially attractive to trailer leasing companies because they can now run mileage reports each month to bill their customers without having to physically read the hubodometers.”

“Having access to actual mileage readings will take the guesswork out of scheduling preventative maintenance,” says Ken Veit, director of business development for Bat RF by Stemco. “Thanks to our partnership with SkyBitz, fleet maintenance teams can eliminate unnecessary calendar-based PMs and instead schedule maintenance based on actual mileage.”
