Kearney Selects Powerfleet for Next-Generation Maintenance, Driver Awareness, and Safety
Partnership enables Kearney Companies to advance construction services with intelligent data insights from IoT, telematics for fleet management
WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Feb. 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Kearney Companies has deployed Powerfleet’s (Nasdaq: PWFL) SaaS-based fleet intelligence platform, Unity. Combined with Powerfleet’s telematics devices and dash cam solutions, Kearney has a powerful, agnostic system to ingest, process and enrich data from every vehicle and asset. With Powerfleet’s data insights, Kearney has a true, single pane of glass to automate and make informed decisions to protect assets, increase productivity and most importantly, improve the safety of its people.
“Powerfleet’s intelligent solution complements our approach to offering the highest quality of work to our customers and helps our employees efficiently and safely do their job,” said Tom Spangler, Chief Financial Officer at The Kearney Companies. “The ability to rapidly make sense of a myriad of data, supported with Powerfleet’s intuitive and dynamic interface, intrigued us. Furthermore, implementation across our various sites and depots went seamlessly. We’re working with a true partner – one that puts us and our customers’ needs first.”
As Kearney will streamline their systems and operate from one data hub, they are able to harness the power of Powerfleet to capitalize on the latest in machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI). This allows Kearney to analyze and proactively manage risky driving situations across their current fleet of 90 road-capable vehicles. Further, they will leverage real-time alerts to bolster safety programs, reduce accidents, increase security, and lower insurance costs.
Kearney can also access utilization hours, as well as automating preventative maintenance tasks. Furthermore, Kearney gains strategic insight into fuel use from examining behaviors like excess idling and detecting unexpected fuel loss.
