Tyre inspection goes high-tech
Bandag is no stranger to progressive technology. The application-specific retread supplier has brought its customers stand-alone tyre management, tyre inspection and scrap-tyre analysis software.
Today, the company offers a fully integrated online solution comprising the ProTurbo, ProOosta, ProWheel and ProTracker platforms.
The company, together with its franchisees, is now taking things mobile, with the use of modern smartphones and tablets.
Utilising an Android app with Bluetooth probes, tyre inspection information is collected and uploaded to Bandag web services at the push of a button. The result is quicker reporting with more accurate information.
“These developments and new tools don’t mean you lose the physical need to work with your hands, or that your technical staff become tech junkies… Rather, it provides a modern solution to modern transporters and supports an old adage – don’t work harder, work smarter!” says the company.
