Trimble and Pana-Pacific Collaborate to Extend the Benefits of Video Intelligence for Transportation
Enhances Existing Distribution Agreement to Market Trimble Fleet Mobility Solutions
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 7, 2019—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) today announced that Pana-Pacific, a provider of technology to the commercial trucking industry, will sell Trimble video equipment for use with a subscription to Trimble’s Video Intelligence™ solution. Through the collaboration, Pana-Pacific will market both two and four-channel digital video recorders (DVRs) and a variety of cameras to the OEM heavy-duty truck dealer network.
“We have a long-standing relationship with Trimble so when we noticed a significant increase in demand from customers for safety and compliance solutions, it was a natural choice to add the Trimble Video Intelligence solution to our product portfolio,” said John Trenberth, president and CEO of Pana-Pacific. “Fleets of all sizes will see improved safety, cost savings and peace of mind thanks to Trimble’s robust platform and the organization’s expertise in delivering trusted safety and compliance solutions.”
Trimble’s Video Intelligence gives fleets a 360-degree view in and around company vehicles using forward, side and rear-facing cameras. Through this neutral eyewitness perspective, fleets can record video evidence in the event of an accident as well as enhance coaching opportunities with company drivers.
“Pana-Pacific and Trimble have an established relationship, in large part due to Pana-Pacific’s strong reputation and commitment to customers,” said Jim Angel, vice president of Trimble’s Video Intelligence Solutions. “We look forward to making Video Intelligence available to the heavy-duty truck dealers through Pana-Pacific, giving more fleets the opportunity to benefit from improved safety and liability protection.”
The distribution agreement was announced at the ATA Management Conference & Exhibition, being held in San Diego on October 5-9, 2019. For more information on Video Intelligence, visit: https://transportation.trimble.com/transportation-solutions/video-safety-solutions.
