FPT Industrial introduces MyFPT APP for engine data at the fingertips
Published on : Wednesday 14-04-2021
The services enable the customer to monitor the operation and status of all their registered FPT engines in real time.
April 2021 – For all FPT Industrial engine users, and there are millions all over the world, great news is on the way: it’s called MyFPT and it is the smartphone application that not only places all the data, user's manuals and service schedules for FPT Industrial engines and machinery equipped with the brand's engines, literally in the hands of the user, but it also provides the operating status of the power unit in real time (such as the RPM, temperature, consumption, etc.) and it lets you request assistance with a simple “tap”.
In fact, MyFPT offers two types of service: connected and not connected. The latter includes all engine data, such as technical and specific information on emissions, complete technical documentation with user and service manuals, and a section dedicated to replacement parts, detailing the most frequently replaced parts. From the non-connected services section you can also contact the FPT Industrial Customer Centre to request assistance or information on the engine, as well as find the nearest dealer.
The services provided when connected, using a Bluetooth dongle connected to the engine diagnostics socket, enable the customer to monitor the operation and status of all their registered FPT engines in real time. In fact, the customer can view “live” data relative to engine RPM, operating temperature, fluid levels and fuel consumption. Any anomaly is immediately detected, and the relative codes are sent directly to the Customer Centre in order to reduce diagnostics times. In fact, the customer can follow the correct procedure to get back to operation as quickly as possible, where necessary activating the assistance service.
Launched in July 2020 on the App Store (https://apps.apple.com/it/app/myfpt/id1513628544) and Google Play (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fpt.engineapp) for smartphones with iOS and Android technology, it is now available in new markets and with new connected features. MyFPT enriches the range of post-sales services FPT Industrial offers its customers, significantly facilitating the work and lives of those who need to constantly monitor a high number of engines simultaneously, such as fleet managers. Designed and developed leveraging the expertise of the CNH Industrial Digital Hub, MyFPT underwent extensive testing with end users, resulting in extremely positive feedback.
