ZTR and BlackBerry team up on ZTR Pivot Railcar solution

New Digital Railcar Solution.

ZTR and BlackBerry have combined their technology expertise to offer railcar owners, operators and suppliers ZTR Pivot, a powerful new digital monitoring solution.

Recognizing there was an immediate industry need for a remote railcar monitoring solution that could withstand the rugged conditions of the railway, provide greater fleet insights and operate with extended battery life, the two companies decided to leverage their mutual strengths.

Built to withstand the rugged conditions of the railway and available through an intuitive online dashboard, the ZTR Pivot railcar solution is a powerful end-to-end solution that allows tracking and monitoring of railcars and other non-powered railway assets.

The solution is intended to avoid downtime, prioritize maintenance requirements, increase reliability and more.

It was an easy decision for ZTR to work with BlackBerry, according to Sam Hassan, CEO and President of ZTR.

“We’re always looking ahead to anticipate customer needs and improve availability, reliability and efficiency through innovation, so it made sense to join together to deliver greater customer value,”

The new monitoring product is an end-to-end solution that helps railcar customers achieve increased efficiency. Available now through an intuitive online dashboard, the service includes location, utilization, and mileage data for railcars and other non-powered railway assets.

“Together with ZTR, we share a vision to bring digital transformation to the railroads so that they can make better, data-driven decisions that lead to greater fleet efficiency.”
