WAYNE, Penn. — GE’s VeriWise trailer tracking system has received the Connecticut Quality Improvement Award (CQIA) for innovation.
The VeriWise system uses dual satellite trailer tracking technology to pinpoint the location of a fleet’s trailers at any given time. It’s able to locate a trailer to within 30 feet of its actual location.
“VeriWise was launched in 2003 and now has an installed base greater than 10,000 units,” said Thomas Konditi, general manager of GE’s Asset Intelligence business. “I think the plus or minus 30 feet target location parameter, along with our documented ability to improve customer productivity by more than 10 per cent, had a very specific and positive impact on the judges.”
The awards are available to Connecticut-based manufacturing and service companies and have been doled out since 1987.
“By using creative ingenuity, each of the CQIA prize winners is helping humanity and improving our lives with novel and superior products and services,” CQIA founder and executive director Sheila Carmine explained in a congratulatory letter to GE. “CQIA honorees create better health services, improve resource use, widen communications, enhance education and increase safety for all of us.”
