TRC Introduces New Pingo Analytics Features

The Routing Company (TRC)  announced the launch of new features in its Pingo Analytics, its next-generation customer transit analytics and reporting tool.

First introduced in 2023, Pingo Analytics is TRC’s next-generation customer transit analytics and reporting tool that offers customer data access, with reports customizable to meet the U.S. Federal Transit Administration's (FTA) National Transit Database (NTD) requirements.

The new reporting features – including new self-serve reporting capabilities and additional on-demand transit (ODT) metrics – can be used to combine pre-developed reports for NTD reporting, or to generate any report an operator needs whether in real-time or based on historical data. 

Fleetio Announces New Features

Fleetio announced four new features, further solidifying its commitment to providing adaptable solutions for fleets of all sizes. 

The new features include Tire Management, Warranty Management, Sensor Data Snapshots, and Enhanced Service Tasks. 

“At Fleetio, we’re passionate about empowering fleets to reach their full potential,” said Jon Meachin, CEO of Fleetio. “These new features and offerings are a testament to our innovation and customer-centricity. We’re confident they’ll serve as valuable tools to help fleets thrive in today’s competitive landscape.”

  • Tire Management allows fleet managers to gain real-time insights into tire health and performance, tracking tread depth, air pressure, and usage data, proactively identifying potential issues, and ensuring compliance with Department of Transportation regulations.
  • Warranty Management maximizes warranty claims to avoid unnecessary expenses. This functionality tracks standard and extended warranties, automatically alerting mechanics about applicable policies, and seamlessly integrates warranty credits into work orders. 
  • Sensor Data Snapshots leverage sensor data to proactively detect and address potential problems before they escalate. Managers and drivers create and enrich issues with sensor information, providing technicians with valuable context to diagnose and resolve problems efficiently. Upon initial launch, this feature supports Fleetio users who have integrations with Geotab or Samsara.
  • Enhanced Service Tasks with Parts and Labor streamline work order creation and improve technician productivity. It allows users to link service tasks to specific parts and expected labor hours, eliminating manual data entry and providing valuable insights into labor efficiency.
