Here’s a good way to help your fleet last longer – automate your maintenance.
A Virginia Tech study on machine maintenance said that repair costs are reduced by 25% when people regularly schedule maintenance.
Its easy to use SolarTrak data to make sure maintenance stays on schedule.
Simply enter when you’d like to send the equipment to the shop – by days of operation, mileage or engine-hours. SolarTrak will send a text or email to you and your crew chief or repair shop foreman, making it easy to schedule a PM visit.
And when your crew is called to a repair, they can first check SolarTrak data to know:
Exact location of the equipment
Current battery status
Equipment failure can cost businesses hundreds of dollars every day they’re out of service. The cost of replacement equipment goes up every year. SolarTrak costs a mere $9.95 per month per tracker.
Equipment that lasts longer can make you more money. Protect your fleet by using SolarTrak fleet management. Call us at 484-223-4994 to schedule a free demo.
Time marches on and, as everyone with a smartphone knows, certain cellular providers are planning to phase out 3G. Anticipating the switch, SolarTech has moved to a brand-new 4G platform to take advantage of the newer, faster, more efficient data network.
This platform is not the 4G LTE system used by individual cell phone users. This 4G CAT M1 system is specifically dedicated for M2M (machine to machine) traffic. Social media users – and their voice, texts, gaming and video-downloading – will no longer slow and clog the network.
In May 2018, SolarTrak began shipping the new upgraded 4G version trackers. You will notice a new upgraded antenna for screw-mount installations, otherwise, the tracker looks identical.
Have no fear, current SolarTrak customers: Your 3G models will continue to operate for years.
Taking advantage of emerging technology: another way SolarTrak is keeping our customers ahead of the crowd.
Be certain your equipment is ready to track
We’ve signed up so many customers – big and small, local and national, chains and mom and pops – and found that successful installations can be complicated by all kinds of factors:
Our most successful customers have equipment that is virtually never free for a day. If it’s always out on a project, it’s hard to schedule an installation time.
In smaller companies, there may not be a dedicated service and repair staff, meaning you need to wait until both the equipment and Joe (the man with the tools) are available.
One way SolarTrak makes installations easy is by providing a simple and quick way for you to check your work – using the free Check Install App.
The app can be downloaded at app.solar-trak.com.
To check their work, the installer simply enters the serial number of the tracker, and the app tells the installer if the tracker has power and if the cellular connection is complete.
One the installation is verified, the app shows the location of the equipment on a map, battery voltage, and the strength of the cellular connection and GPS connections. You’re ready to go!
We want your installation to work, so you can start taking advantage of all the other great ways SolarTrak will save you time and money.
