The Tyre Tracker software system from Bear’s Tyres has become a comprehensive databank on fleet tyres with considerable data collected over a period of seven years for a well-known fleet operator.
There is now enough data in this Australian-developed software system to see it employed for any similar-sized fleet operator.
Managing Director of Bear’s Tyres and co-inventor of the Tyre Tracker, Mr Brad Bearman says this unique tyre management software can be used in just about any industrial sector where truck fleets are paramount to the bottom line.
Mr Bearman explains that the Tyre Tracker has always functioned to work out the exact cost of the life of a tyre, but the highly qualified bank of data collected over the past seven years in a real, working industry application can now be applied to any fleet operator in Australia with great results.
The Tyre Tracker software has collected enough information to be used as a reference, helping Bear’s Tyres to easily work out the exact tyre for the exact truck or trailer in addition to predicting the lifespan of each tyre as well as cost over its lifespan.
By using Bear’s Tyre Tracker to manage a fleet’s tyres, fleet operators can save about 20-30% on their monthly tyre costs. Mr Bearman says that in addition to the Tyre Tracker software, it is important for fleet operators to have a solid integrated tyre management regime in place.
