TGI and PressurePro, providers of intelligent asset tracking and Tire Performance Management Solutions (TPMS), respectively, have announced their intent to integrate technology.

Announced at the opening of Trimble’s In.Sight User Conference in Houston on Monday, Sept. 16, the companies say the integration would feature wireless connectivity between the systems, allowing fleets immediate access to tire condition reports for each of their trailers, powered or not.

“We feel the transportation industry is moving to a more trailer-centric viewpoint. By integrating our proven global trailer tracking solution with best-of-breed sensor partners and in particular with Pressure Pro’s highly successful TPMS system, we are bringing our mutual customers a solution beyond that which the competition can deliver,” said Randy Boyles, vice president, partner and peripheral integration for TGI.

The companies plan to add comprehensive trailer health reports through TGI’s Solar Satellite devices integrated with PressurePro to allow fleets to monitor trailer health while in service and to check trailer health before scheduling it for service.

“The commercial market understands how arming yourself with reliable, actionable data can help you maintain a competitive advantage,” stated Vanessa Hargrave, chief operating officer of PressurePro. “This integration, and the ability to give trailer health checks while in the yard, would allow us to help fleets operate at the peak of efficiency and safety. As such, we’re excited to explore this opportunity further with TGI.”
