Zonar Announces SightIQ, a Construction Aggregate Asset Productivity Solution for Unearthing Profits
Consolidation of all asset diagnostic and worksite metrics reveals areas to reduce cost-per-ton and drive uptime
The future of construction-aggregate site operations is in leveraging not only more but better data and technology for improving the speed of business, growth of production while ensuring best practice safety and environmental conditions are met,
Zonar, the leader in smart fleet technology, today announced the availability of Zonar SightIQ, a real-time analytics solution for construction aggregate operations. The asset productivity and health solution increases the efficiency and cycle times in pits and quarries by delivering a real-time, consolidated view of - and insights into - an operation’s equipment, machines and vehicles regardless of make, model, year, manufacturer or asset location.
With SightIQ, construction aggregate site operators eliminate the need to manually collect and analyze data from disparate sources and time-consuming production impact studies. In return, operators can focus on unearthing enhanced profits by leveraging SightIQ insights to avoid costly breakdowns and fine-tune site processes. For example, SightIQ-driven insights can identify unnecessary idle time, inefficient use of fuel, or non-optimal timing of maintenance across assets which is considerably costly for heavy-duty fleets. Even a 58-second longer cycle time can cost quarry fleets over $180,000 in lost productivity per day. Additionally, SightIQ meets the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEMP) 2.0 telematics standard, pulling asset data from all major yellow-iron OEMs into a singular unified view accessible through Zonar Ground Traffic Control®.
"The future of construction-aggregate site operations is in leveraging not only more but better data and technology for improving the speed of business, growth of production while ensuring best practice safety and environmental conditions are met," said Nick Grandy, general manager of vocational and industrial services at Zonar. "It is imperative and extremely impactful for customers with these types of fleets to have the real-time, detailed performance data, trending and automated, custom reporting which SightIQ delivers."
The SightIQ asset productivity and health solution is scalable and powered by VizaLogix, a data stream and remote support software solutions provider. At launch, SightIQ includes the following solutions with additional asset productivity and health offerings forthcoming:
- SightIQ Predict – Collects diagnostic information and OEM data from all assets within a fleet at multiple work sites in one continuous data stream, providing predictive and preventative maintenance guidance with asset health scoring, which can easily be leveraged to improve asset uptime.
- SightIQ Optimize – Connects previously manually captured production study data with telematics and OEM data streams from all fleet assets to help increase productivity by reducing the cost-per-ton of aggregate while saving time and money with reporting on operator management, idle times, and fuel efficiency.
"Given how much this new, very easy to use, platform is capable of, we're excited to partner with Zonar to instantly drive down costly worksite inefficiencies resulting in a dramatic uptick in profitability for Zonar vocational fleet customers," said Shawn Bonnington, chief revenue officer at VizaLogix. "Everyone wants to get more done in less time and having instant and holistic operational metrics at their fingertips, the ability to make immediate corrections expedite productions."
