Continental released the first update of its digital tire monitoring platform ContiConnect. The web portal now has more functions, and the entire appearance has improved. The new features link the ContiConnect services directly with fleet operations, so tire management can be improved by using digital monitoring data for physical tire maintenance.
New features available include the ability to set individual notification rules regarding tire temperature and pressure with custom thresholds. Another new feature is the “air filling assistant,” which supports precise tire inflation regardless of the tire’s temperature
Additional new features include:
• Printable task lists with open to-dos for efficient overview of maintenance tasks for workshop employees
• Data export enables individualized analyses and allows for processing in further systems, for example in Excel
• Manual tire data upload to the web portal, called ContiConnect Light, enables tire monitoring without a yard reader station or telematics integration
The new features were created on the basis of customer feedback. Karim Fraiss, Head of Marketing & Operations Digital Solutions, Continental Commercial Vehicles Tires, emphasizes the importance of user feedback: “Customer feedback is very important for our further development of ContiConnect and its features according to fleet operators’ needs. In the future, we want to put even more focus on our co-creation approach in order to maximize the value we can deliver to customers using our digital tire monitoring platform.”
