Fortis Equipment & Consulting, a professional consultancy and provider of asset management and monitoring solutions for rental companies and fleet owners across the equipment industry, has announced its official launch. The Fortis executive team will be led by Josh Mosko, Founder and CEO.

“Together, we possess more than a century of asset management and telematics expertise in the rental and equipment industry,” Mosko said. “Part of our value proposition is we have worked for rental, distributor and OEM firms in various sales, operations, fleet and product support roles. We understand the equipment, applications and end-user expectations and the pain points of managing fleets from the field to the executive level.”

Fortis executives have been working to refine their solution, collaborating with strategic customers for extensive field testing. The launch marks the first time their unique combination of expert consulting services and extensive product and solution offerings will be available to the marketplace.

"I’m passionate about providing innovation to the industry, and I’m excited about the team we have assembled,” Mosko said.

The Fortis Team Assessment: For each engagement, the Fortis team begins with an assessment of fleet and customer needs. They also offer a free business strategy review and a demo of their recommended telematics solution. The demo illustrates the overall functionality and user interface of the system to monitor vehicles, engine-driven or non-engine-driven assets.

Fortis then adds additional value with the customization of features based on the customer’s business needs. The solution integrates with technology tools through API’s in order to utilize cross-functional technology.

“Today’s customers want to understand how the machine is operating in specific applications as well as how it is being operated by a worker. There is an overwhelming amount of data available, so we help customers filter the data and create KPI’s and customize dashboards for their business needs,” Mosko said.

“A key differentiator is the way we customize hardware to monitor additional parameters on the equipment with analog and digital controls,” Mosko continued. “Furthermore, we have incorporated the ability to control settings, make adjustments over the air, start and stop, and troubleshoot equipment.”

This advanced telemetry monitoring allows proactive fleet management to identify performance trends and alert users of potential issues before failure occurs, preventing and/or minimizing downtime. It also supports predictive maintenance and rightsizing of parts inventory at locations or jobsites.

Mosko and the Fortis team also possess deep field experience, having built solutions for small and large fleets from inception to implementation. They have taken their collective knowledge and developed technology solutions that can be embedded into the workflow to streamline operations and fleet management, plus add value for customer service.
