Fleet Maintenance Technology That Solves Problems and Improves Bottom Lines

Garbage truck maintenance is challenged by a number of factors that impact overall business performance – starting with the number of vehicles modern fleets have to manage.

While vehicle and body technologies have grown dramatically over the last decade, the means to collect data from a refuse collection vehicle have lagged – often resulting in reactive maintenance campaigns that only tackle repairs after the vehicle is out of service, or down on route. This in turn impacts fleet productivity and customer service. Ultimately, this leads to an increased spare ratio, which only adds additional cost.

A quantum leap forward in the the ability to see the future of your fleet's maintenance needs.

With the advancement of technology, there’s a means to collect data from a refuse collection vehicle – or RCV that provides solutions to specifically address these challenges, each of which has a positive effect on the hauler’s performance improves the relationship with their customers and ultimately, grows their bottom line.

Communicates what to fix and how to fix it.

Optim-Eyes communicates what to fix AND how to fix it; including the engine, brakes, coolant, both diesel and CNG fuel systems, electrical systems, and exhaust, not to mention how weather impacts the vehicle’s performance! Having a detailed diagnosis of each vehicle on this granular level reduces errant parts inventories and ultimately reduces the need for fleet spares to compensate for unanticipated breakdowns.
