Goodyear launches new eJob fleet inspection tool

Fleet news logo

Goodyear has launched a new version of its automated fleet inspection tool eJob, which aims to automate and streamline the truck and bus fleet tyre inspection process.

The smart application covers from registration to maintenance, roadside assistance, retreading and warranty for service providers.

The application, which is part of Goodyear Total Mobility, can be installed on an Android tablet and enables tyre technicans to record and transmit data, as well as send pictures to the end-customer from any location across Europe.

Maciej Szymanski, director marketing commercial Europe for Goodyear, said: “Checking a fleet of 50 vehicles can easily take up to 20 hours.

“The latest version of eJob takes the fleet inspection process to the next level, providing full automation from tyre registration, recording of remaining tread dept and tyre pressure as well as planning the next steps in the tyre maintenance and management process.”

Earlier this year, research by Goodyear found only one-quarter (25%) of fleet operators have a single brand supply deal with a tyre manufacturer.

The majority (83%) of fleet managers surveyed who have a single brand supply deal cite the main benefit is improved reliability in operation.


Fleet News Awards + Commercial Fleet Awards 2021

The Fleet News Awards is moving to a new date for 2021.

Traditionally held in March, next year the awards night moves to June 29 at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. It will also for the first time incorporate the Commercial Fleet Awards to create an unparalleled celebration that honours and recognises excellence across every part of the fleet sector.

Stephen Briers, editor-in-chief of Fleet News, said: “With the industry in turmoil due to the coronavirus pandemic, we had a chance to reflect and review our awards proposition for 2021. While going virtual is an option, and one we are very excited about with our Fleet & Mobility Live show in November, we believe that an awards evening is also a networking evening and a chance to meet old friends and make new acquaintances in a relaxed environment.

“For many guests, it’s their industry highlight of the year. That’s why we decided to move the date to give us a better chance of being live at the Grosvenor House.”

Fleet News Awards 2021, incorporating Commercial Fleet Awards, will offer a unique opportunity to bring together the entire fleet sector to celebrate and honour the best people, companies and vehicles.

It is set to become the biggest and most important night in fleet. Further details about awards categories, judges and auditing will be released in January when Fleet News officially launches the Fleet News Awards 2021.
