Uptake, industrial intelligence software-as-a-service (SaaS), announced the availability of several major new capabilities in Uptake Fleet, its comprehensive predictive maintenance solution for the transportation industry. Leading the additions is an expanded Work Order Analytics capability. This enables users to predict vehicle failures down to the component level for more detailed and accurate decision-making.
Also included in Uptake Fleet’s enhancements is support for a number of popular sensor analytics endpoints. Through the addition of new Application Programming Interface (API) and Electrical System Rating (ESR) connectors, fleets can leverage data from these endpoints to optimize their maintenance scheduling and further reduce vehicle breakdowns.
“From supply chain disruptions to parts shortages, the transportation industry has been hit hard in recent years,” says Kayne Grau, Uptake CEO. “Maintenance and repair costs are up by over 18%. The new capabilities of Uptake Fleet are built with our customers’ evolving needs in mind to help increase vehicle uptime, save money, and maximize efficiency across an entire fleet.”
WORK ORDER ANALYTICS
Further, with its new capabilities, Uptake Fleet’s Work Order Analytics offers insights beyond time and odometer-based measurements for maintenance decision-making. Using up to 10 years of existing internal work order data, the tool provides component-level survival curves that indicate where a truck’s assets are in the equipment lifecycle, as well as aggregate and individual unit component analytics. It also filters by data fields, allowing users to assess both enterprise-level and vehicle-specific performance.
In its new configuration, Uptake Fleet users can set survival curve thresholds for specific vehicle components. When these thresholds are crossed, Uptake Fleet will create an alert that influences the truck’s risk score and flags the potential for component failure. As a result, users are able to plan more accurately for replacements and prepare stock accordingly.
Uptake Fleet’s new sensor analytics capabilities support outputs from the Geotab ESR module. This gives Geotab users a new way to generate electrical systems insights that can prevent roadside failures. Using Geotab’s ESR “score,” Uptake Fleet can establish thresholds for insights on alternator, battery, and other critical system component health.
Additionally, through enhanced support for connector APIs from prominent manufacturers, Uptake Fleet ingests and analyzes a wider range of data. Users can leverage this additional information to expand their insights to increase vehicle uptime, minimize maintenance disruptions, and improve productivity.
Uptake Fleet’s new analytics capabilities are now available to all platform users.
