Goodyear launches an advanced version of its automated fleet inspection tool eJob. This smart application partly automates and streamlines the total truck and bus fleet inspection process from registration to maintenance, roadside assistance, retreading and warranty for service providers. From a fleet perspective, eJob offers full transparency of all maintenance and fleet inspections carried out, visible within seconds of job submission, from anywhere in Europe.
Goodyear's New Smart Solution for Time Savings and Transparency
The smart application is supporting Goodyear FleetOnlineSolutions (FOS), one of the leading fleet tyre management systems on the market. This advanced platform provides fleets and tyre dealers managing the fleet a full overview including all vehicles, their location, applied tyre policy and agreed terms as well as warranty.
“Regular fleet inspections increase uptime and prevent potential tyre related issues and costs however they can be time consuming for a business that is always on a deadline. Checking a fleet of fifty vehicles can easily take up to twenty hours. The latest version of eJob takes the fleet inspection process to a next level providing full automation from tyre registration, recording of remaining tread depth and tyre pressure as well as planning the next steps in the tyre maintenance and management process,” explained Maciej Szymanski - Director Marketing Europe for Commercial Business Unit at Goodyear.
Goodyear's latest eJob update is fully aligned with the latest industry trend where trucks and parts become more and more connected. The support of fast and automated data collection is critical in this respect.
“The new version of eJob allows our teams to further increase work efficiency and excel customer satisfaction. Since we use eJob we have been able to better plan our work, reduce administrative tasks, optimise stock management and service our customers faster. The tool is really user-friendly and brings important time savings, the transparent reporting is greatly appreciated by our fleet customers,” shared Kamil Triska of quality service network Pneumaster in Poland.
The application can be installed on an Android tablet (OS 7 and above) and enables tyre technicians to record and transmit tyre data as well as send pictures to the end-customer from any location in Europe. All data is instantly transmitted via Goodyear FleetOnlineSolutions and offers truck operators full transparency on the tyre management provided. The fleet customer can virtually see the condition of the tyre, reason for the exchange and list of work done by its service partner.
“To perform as a craftsman, you need the best tools. For us, a professional fleet check is involving FleetOnlineSolutions and eJob. Capturing tyre data manually on paper is just unthinkable for us nowadays. With the help of an RFID-chip in the tyre, we are able to identify each tyre based on direct manufacturer data. Via the advanced eJob application, all tread depth and air pressure measures per wheel position are automatically loaded via Bluetooth in FleetOnlineSolutions offering full transparency and exact data to our fleet customers,” described Max Kienberger, large fleet service provider in Germany.
With a simple barcode scan, the technician registers all key tyre data directly from the manufacturing database, including tyre name, product code, size and type, original tread depth as well as agreed maintenance policy by the customer. New features of eJob include also the management of stored customer tyres as well as completed and synchronised jobs.
eJob is available to service providers, in multiple languages and is an integral part of Goodyear Total Mobility. Known as a fully customisable one-stop offer to serve the needs of local and long-haul transportation companies.
