The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy — America’s independent entrepreneurs.

Inc. 500|5000 Methodology
The 2014 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2010 to 2013. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2010. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2013. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2010 is $100,000; the minimum for 2013 is $2 million.

Tire Pressure Monitoring Solution Added to OneView

Our team has been hard at work building the next solution to be added to the OneView platform. The new OneView tire pressure monitoring solution combines the powerful Doran 360™ tire pressure monitoring system with the OneView platform. This integration allows you to view tire pressure readings remotely, which enables a dispatcher to ensure their fleet’s tires are properly inflated. This can help prolong the life of the tires and improve fuel economy.

Did you know that fuel efficiency improves by as much as 3.3 percent when tires are properly inflated, according to the U.S. Department of Energy? For a company managing a fleet of 20 semis, this equates to 13,530 gallons or about $50,000 annually in saved fuel. Additionally, having appropriate air pressure in tires can help reduce maintenance costs from blowouts and re-treading tires.

Let’s take a closer look at the tire pressure monitoring solution:

The tire pressure monitoring system provides customers with deeper visibility into their operations. Tires are one of the top expenses for equipment/trucks and operating with underinflated tires will decrease tire life at the very least and usually leads to downtime.

“Adopting Doran tire pressure monitoring systems has proven to reduce tire-related repair and maintenance expenses for a number of fleets around the country,” said Jim Samocki, General Manager for Doran Manufacturing. “The capability to have remote visibility to tires with low pressure allows fleets to proactively address those tires, which helps to improve tread life, improve casing quality and minimize roadside repair calls from catastrophic tire failures.”

Announcing the OneView Tire Pressure Monitoring Solution

Pedigree Technologies OneView® now allows for continuous remote monitoring of tire pressure

(FARGO, N.D.) — Fuel efficiency improves by as much as 3.3 percent when tires are properly inflated, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. For a company managing a fleet of 20 semis, this equates to 13,530 gallons or about $50,000 annually in saved fuel. Additionally, having appropriate air pressure in tires can help reduce maintenance costs from blowouts and re-treading tires. Pedigree Technologies LLC and Doran Manufacturing LLC of Cincinnati, Ohio partnered to develop a system that allows a vehicle’s tire pressure to be monitored remotely.

When used alongside the Doran 360™ tire pressure monitoring system, Pedigree Technologies OneView can be used to view tire pressure readings remotely. This allows a dispatcher to ensure tires are properly inflated, which can help prolong the life of the tires and improve fuel economy.

The Doran 360 tire pressure monitoring system sends tire pressure readings to the OneView platform each time the ignition is turned off or on and whenever there is a dramatic tire pressure loss or a low-pressure alarm is activated in a tire. Tire pressure readings are combined with the vehicle’s real-time GPS location. OneView sends email and text message alerts to the dispatcher if improper tire conditions exist. Pedigree Technologies Director of Product Management, Joshua DeCock said, “The system provides customers with deeper visibility into their operations. Tires are one of the top expenses for equipment/trucks and operating with underinflated tires will decrease tire life at the very least and usually leads to downtime.”

“Adopting Doran tire pressure monitoring systems has proven to reduce tire-related repair and maintenance expenses for a number of fleets around the country,” said Jim Samocki, General Manager for Doran Manufacturing. “The capability to have remote visibility to tires with low pressure allows fleets to proactively address those tires, which helps to improve tread life, improve casing quality and minimize roadside repair calls from catastrophic tire failures.”

The Doran 360 tire pressure monitoring systems utilize a valve stem mounted sensor which transmits air pressure and temperature data to OneView platform and to a monitor/display in the cab of the vehicle. The LCD display allows the driver to see current tire pressure readings for each wheel position and it provides both visible and audible alerts when a low tire pressure threshold is reached, including a unique FastLeak™ alert that is triggered when a tire drops 2.8 psi in less than 12 seconds.
