ATLANTA — Dana Inc. has upgraded its Rhombus TireAnalytics software with improved cost-per-mile analysis capabilities that allow fleets to track their tire costs by application or by axle type.
Introduced in 2017, Rhombus TireAnalytics is a cloud-based platform that allows fleets establish best practices for their tire-maintenance programs and track compliance across all terminals. The platform allows fleet managers to identify and predict maintenance issues to minimize downtime and maximize the life of their tires, Dana claims.
In response to customer feedback, Dana enhanced the user identification for the Rhombus TireAnalytics 3.0 for stronger security and more flexibility in how users secure access to the platform and also includes a new install and rotate capability for the mobile application, which allows technicians to service a vehicle anywhere in the terminal. This feature reduces time need to record complex patterns that involve, for example, rotating a set of tires while matching pairs of dual tires at the same time.
" …This latest version continues our mission to provide data-driven solutions, allowing fleets and truck owners to predict and optimize tire spend in order to maximize a vehicle's operational effectiveness," Mark Wallace, president of Dana Commercial Vehicle Driveline Technologies, said.
"This enhancement also takes into consideration critical customer feedback, allowing maintenance professionals to better assess their tire management strategies and ensure operational efficiency for this critical area of maintenance."
Dana presented Rhombus TireAnalytics 3.0 at the Technology & Maintenance Council Meeting in Atlanta.
