Advantage PressurePro has announced its partnership with Portman Securities and the integration of PressurePro’s tire pressure monitoring systems with Portman Securities’ tracking devices. The companies say this partnership allows them to offer users a fully integrated telematics package complete with GPS tracking, personnel tracking, driving behavior reports, cargo temperature and door monitoring, route optimization, work order fulfillment, scheduled maintenance, tire pressure monitoring and more.
Utilizing GPRS and GSM/SMS messaging, the integrated systems allow users, from fleets to individuals, to monitor and track all types of vehicles, including tractor-trailers, heavy equipment, trucks, autos, RVs, trailers, boats, generators, people and containers, the companies say. “By working together, we are able to bring TPMS to Portman’s already outstanding product, providing a truly complete management solution that provides a long list of benefits with a very short return on investment,” says Phillip G. Zaroor, president and chief executive officer of Harrisonville, Mo.-based PressurePro.
Included in the long list of benefits are increased fuel efficiency, extended tire life, reduced carbon emissions, diminished maintenance costs, decreased vehicle downtime, improved vehicle stability, handling and braking efficiencies, amplified vehicle security, greater driver accountability, superior delivery reliability and greater safety, the companies say.
