Ride Connection Implements Thingtech for Transit Asset Management Solution

 Cloud based Solution Coordinates Assets Management and Maintenance across 30 Transportation Providers

thingtech (www.thingtech.com) an Atlanta, GA company announced today that it has been selected to deploy maintainIT - an enterprise transit asset management solution - to Ride Connection, Inc. (Ride Connection), a leading provider and broker of demand response community transportation services in the Portland, OR metropolitan area. 

Ride Connection, like many community transportation providers, operates a large fleet across a wide geography. This, along with the company’s unique provider and broker model – where some vehicles are operated by providers; not Ride Connection directly – present large challenges for maintenance management, record keeping, and reporting requirements. 

Recognizing the challenge, Ride Connection turned to technology to assist.  After evaluating proposals, Ride Connection selected ThingTech for its innovative, cloud-based and wirelessly connected solution that connects providers via the cloud and can connect assets through real-time tracking for asset utilization, asset health status, and driver safety.

“We’re very excited to be working with ThingTech. Their enterprise transit asset management tools offered a combination of features that no one else could beat.  Community transportation challenges are unique relative to other industries and we were thrilled to find a vendor that provided robust fleet and asset management products, with the detailed features geared specifically for us and our industry.”  Says Elaine Wells, Executive Director of Ride Connection. 

“Ride Connection is an innovative leader in community transportation. The challenges they face are a perfect fit for our platform that provides Asset Intelligence through the cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT).  We’re honored that our solutions will help Ride Connection with their mission of delivering the gift of mobility to those in need.” says Brian Corcoran, President of ThingTech.
