Azuga and UpKeep Partner to Help Maintenance Teams


(MENAFN- GlobeNewsWire - Nasdaq) FREMONT, Calif., Oct. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Azuga , the fleet telematics company, announces a partnership with UpKeep , the maintenance management company. The basis of the partnership is the integration of Azuga Fleet with UpKeep's maintenance management software, which Maintenance managers use to operate efficiently and effectively.

Azuga Fleet is a hardware- and software-based solution for managing mobile workers and vehicles. It combines GPS, vehicle diagnostics and AI to provide fleet operations managers with information including worker/vehicle location and worker/vehicle performance. From the moment a driver turns on the ignition, every mile, stop, vehicle and driver is tracked, analyzed and reported to improve safety and efficiency.

UpKeep is maintenance management software that stores information about maintenance operations, such as maintenance performed on equipment, machinery and other assets. The software improves asset management by eliminating the need for manual spreadsheets and consolidating all maintenance team activities in one place.

The Azuga / UpKeep solution gives Maintenance managers greater visibility into the status of an operations vehicle. Managers can sync a vehicle's location in real time, so they know exactly where a vehicle is and they can assign work orders to the right people. Managers can also receive alerts on vehicle faults, automatically triggering work orders, ensuring no fault code goes unchecked. And managers can sync odometer readings within UpKeep, so they can perform recurring mileage-based inspections.

“We at UpKeep have always been focused on streamlining the workflow for maintenance teams,” said Ryan Chan, CEO of UpKeep.“That's why UpKeep has partnered with Azuga to provide a fully integrated fleet maintenance solution that allows for real-time diagnostics of vehicles and moving assets.”

“Azuga's integration with UpKeep helps customers increase vehicle lifespan through issue-based maintenance and reduces manual labor costs by 25% through the elimination of manual data entry, which is prone to human errors,” said Matthew Curtis, Director of Partnerships at Azuga.“We think our joint customers will embrace automated, condition-based maintenance, which has shown to increase vehicle lifespan by 7x compared to reactive-based maintenance.”
