Goodyear’s new Tire Optix tire management program is promising to boost the productivity of tire technicians by 20-25%.
The program provides Goodyear truck tire technicians with a special scanning device, which allows them to electronically record air pressure and tread depth. That information is automatically uploaded via Bluetooth to a cloud-based platform. The data can be viewed in real-time by the fleet.
If a problem is identified on a tire, a picture can be taken and uploaded for analysis by the fleet. A note can also be made in the app by the tire inspector.
Once completed, the details are sync’d to the tire performance database that crunches the numbers and sends back actionable reports.
The new program is available now through Goodyear dealers.
