Leading Heavy Civil Contractor Increases Efficiency with GlobalTRACSSAN DIEGO
Qualcomm Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM), a leading provider of business-to-business wireless enterprise applications and services, and Traylor Bros. Inc., a leading heavy civil contractor, today announced that all critical equipment in Traylor's fleet is now equipped with Qualcomm's GlobalTRACS® equipment management system. Traylor Bros., which was recently presented with a Fleet Masters Award from the Association of Equipment Management Professionals for having the best-managed fleet in North America, is finding that the GlobalTRACS system is enhancing its fleet-management capabilities.
Designed to meet the demanding requirements of the construction equipment industry, the GlobalTRACS system automatically collects, manages, organizes and transmits equipment engine hours and location data, as well as remotely monitors critical machine health. GlobalTRACS' alerts notify dispatchers of critical information regarding machine systems, and a GPS-based location identifier tells them where equipment is at any given time.
“Increasing visibility into our fleet is good business,” said Jeff Schroder, corporate equipment superintendent of Traylor Bros. Inc. “The GlobalTRACS system is helping us reduce equipment downtime, increase revenue and provide significant value both to us and our customers.”
Because GlobalTRACS is an end-to-end wireless solution, it is providing Traylor Bros. with the information they need to improve asset utilization and uptime, operational efficiency and customer satisfaction. This information can be accessed via the Web or integrated into existing back-end business software systems, and customer-defined reports allow employees to view data in the format that best suits their needs.
“Industry leaders such as Traylor Bros. know that they need enhanced access to the right information to maximize the potential of their business,” said Larry Cleary, vice president and general manager of construction equipment for Qualcomm Wireless Business Solutions. “The GlobalTRACS system was designed to address our customers' needs and to help them grow their businesses.”
