Snow Removal Analytics & Tracking
Citizens lives depend on clear and safe roads maintained by winter maintenance departments, vehicles and drivers.
Plowing and salting roads and highways is a critical service delivered by local government and departments of transportation. Their job is to make sure roads are plowed and de-iced as soon as possible.
While a department heads primary goal is ensuring roads are clear and safe they’re also tasked with containing costs, proving environmental compliance and optimizing the performance of their workers, assets and fleets.
SkyHawk’s winter analytics solution is unique in the industry supporting a wide range of spreader controllers and sensors and includes specialized winter ops reports. The winter operations fleet tracking solution effectively and efficiently deploys, monitors and manages fleets, drivers, assets and material usage. Winter Operations managers have real-time and up to date visibility on the performance of drivers, current state of snow removal and other sources of information necessary to monitor overall operating costs, spreading frequency and quantities and to prove environmental and performance requirements.

In collaboration with one of our large State DOT clients in the USA, a blind test was completed where SkyHawk spreader data accuracy was 99.6% for liquids & 94.3% for solids, versus other leading telematics providers whose accuracy was 83.6% & 78.3% respectively.
Dawson Road Maintenance was looking for a solution that could provide us with tracking of our vehicle fleet across 4 different service areas, inside and outside of cellular coverage areas. Our fleet patrols, sweeps, sands, sprays and plows BC’s roads to keep them maintained and safe – SkyHawk’s focus on Winter Operations along with it’s broad range of capability for summertime vehicle tracking and engine diagnostics, provided us with a solution that is uniquely able to gather operational insights on which vehicles are performing these activities, when and precisely where. ConnectAnywhere’s pre-canned reports make it straightforward to gather the information we need to report accurately internally and to our Ministry. The Skyhawk customer service and implementation teams are second to none, and have helped us work through the setup of nearly 450 vehicles, responding to and addressing any challenges that have come up along the way.
