3 Easy Steps to Upgrade Your Old In-Cab Equipment

Vintage may be cool when it comes to music, fashion and designs. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case with old in-cab hardware for your fleet management solutions.

So, how can you ditch your older equipment in favor of the latest in-cab technology? At Trimble, we help fleets just like yours every day to seamlessly transition from legacy hardware to newer solutions.

And, whether you are a current Trimble customer or not, we have distilled the upgrade process down to 3 simple steps:

1) Work with us to understand your options

An important first step is determining which hardware solutions to upgrade to. Do your drivers require display portability as part of their job? How about maintaining integrations to other safety and vehicle systems?

Regardless of what your unique needs may be, we are here to help. Our Account and Customer Success Management teams can work with you to identify suitable upgrade paths and get the paperwork started!

2) Finalize your contract

Completing paperwork isn’t anyone’s idea of fun but working through contract details is a crucial step. Why? Because we have several different options to help tailor the terms to meet your business’ needs.

Things to consider here include how you want to structure your contract. Do you want to pay for equipment upfront or follow a hardware-as-a-service model? What about extended payment plans? We will walk through your options with you to help determine the right fit for your organization. 

3) Ready, set, install! 

Your equipment is selected and your contract is finalized; you are almost there! Whether you are upgrading your hardware yourself or need some installation assistance, we can help make the process as easy as possible. This includes several retrofit options to streamline installations. For existing customers, this also means removing old equipment from your account record.

Harness the Latest in Fleet Management with Trimble

While the process is straightforward, it is important to note that it can take a few weeks to complete, particularly in consideration of the number of trucks in your fleet. This means that the sooner you kick off the upgrade process the faster you can start realizing enhanced connectivity, increased performance and a faster ROI on your technology investment.
