It's as easy as tracking a pizza delivery....

With FleetWatcher's FOB Delivery Tracker, you will always know when your materials will arrive and where they are being delivered. The FOB Delivery Tracker allows you to send a delivery notification to clients when purchased material has shipped and is en route to their projects, giving them live visibility into the trucks carrying their material.

FleetWatcher Partners with OnStation to Pinpoint Location of Each Asphalt Load

Screen Shot 2022-09-27 at 10.08.24 AM

Earthwave has integrated their e-ticketing functionality with OnStation to allow users to pinpoint the exact Station Location where each load of asphalt is placed on a jobsite. This new functionality automatically tracks the load from the time it is loaded at the asphalt plant, through its dumping into the paver on the jobsite. The exact Station location becomes a part of the digital e-ticket, with no operator intervention required. Operators and transportation agency officials can know precisely on a jobsite where a specific load of asphalt was laid, so that if a future problem arises, they can investigate other parameters around that location, including core tests, density, drainage, or others, to determine the scope of the problem. Specific station locations on each e-ticket replace the latitude/longitude indications which are commonly included now, but which are not readily referenceable on the jobsite.

FleetWatcher's Escalating Idle Alert informs managers when equipment has been idling for too long, allowing immediate corrective action to be taken. This can help slash idle time, and thus elongate equipment life span.

  • FleetWatcher monitors rpm over time, and alerts managers with text or email when a pre-set threshold has been reached
  • The parameters and alerting structure are completely customizable by the user
  • Data can be integrated with other business systems such as accounting, estimating
  • Tracks multiple data points including cycle times, productivity and downtime, equipment utilization and underutilization, exact location of each piece of equipment, project status, budgets, shop costs, rental expenses, and trends and behaviors

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Pilots E-Ticketing Solution

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet used Fleetwatcher's E-Ticketing solution on two research projects during the 2018 paving season in an effort to investigate the effectiveness of the electronic ticketing process in combination with both intelligent compaction and infrared temperature monitoring.  The two projects were KYTC's initial attempts to begin developing a system wherein the majority of material monitoring is done electronically, allowing a KYTC inspector to focus on a more visual inspection of the material being placed.
