InTempo Software has announced a new partnership with LHP Telematics, a provider of location, status and usage data for rental equipment.
Together, the companies have developed InTempo MX, a turn-key solution that merges telematics and rental management information from GPS locations and machine utilization data to dispatch information and preventive maintenance schedules. This makes it possible to increase available rental days and reduce unscheduled maintenance events.
“Real-time telematics data has become more critical than ever,” explained Matt Hopp, general manager of InTempo. “Fleet managers need to be able to identify problems before breakdowns occur; remote usage and performance monitoring makes this possible.”
“As we developed this solution, we knew we wanted a tight integration with the InTempo Enterprise rental system,” Hopp continued. “When business owners have to manage telematics data in one system and rental data in another, it isn’t just time-consuming; it doesn’t always fully connect the dots. With InTempo MX, users can turn to one platform to get their data, analyze it, and create a plan to make their business more efficient. They now have a streamlined way to find out where they’re missing their metrics, where waste is occurring, and how they can improve.”
“When we made the decision to expand our telematics offering, LHP was a natural choice,” said Scott Alexander, chief operating officer at InTempo. “Their ability to push data in multiple directions – both to and from our rental software – makes a huge difference for users. They don’t have to manage data in two different systems or wait for it to sync; everything they need is available in their core software in real time.”
“LHP’s Visualization Layer was another major advantage,” Alexander added. “Data doesn’t benefit anyone unless you can understand and act on it. We didn’t want to just throw information at our customers; we wanted it to be clear, concise, and usable. LHP does a phenomenal job of turning numbers into custom reports that actually make a difference for your business. Everything can be configured to the user’s needs – whether that’s customizing reports based on location and fleet size or scheduling reports to be delivered to certain people at certain times.”
