Tenna has its expanded Integration functionality that connects its equipment management platform with various external construction software products, platforms, and systems.
This includes inbound data integrations with OEMs in accordance with ISO 15143-3 telematics standards, and other data integrations with construction SaaS platforms including estimating systems and ERP and project operations platforms to allow contractors to optimize and share their equipment data across their multiple business systems.
According to Tenna, the move allows contractors to benefit from more accurate and reliable data, gained efficiencies by reducing redundancy and manual entry of information, and improved communications across the business.
“[W]e’re very conscious of how we want things to flow and how we can make our tools and systems work for our contractor customers,” said Austin Conti, cofounder and CEO, in a prepared statement. “Integrating disparate systems and software into one simple, powerful platform is something we wanted for ourselves and we know is of great value to our clients. The potential number of hours saved for a single contractor by integrating their data from Tenna to other systems is in the thousands.”
Current outbound integrations, where Tenna’s data can be shared with other business platforms, are presently facilitated through Tenna’s partnership with Procore as well as B2W.
“Integrating Procore and the Tenna platform is another example of innovation within the construction industry that is meant to make the lives of construction professionals easier,” said Kris Lengieza, Procore senior director, business development, in a statement. “This integration enhances collaboration between project stakeholders and gives greater visibility into equipment usage and productivity.”
Said Luke Kotovic, maintenance manager at Faber Construction, in a statement:
“Procore is the backbone of our business intelligence initiatives. The addition of Tenna’s suite of telematics data and construction fleet contextual processing will open up significant opportunities for Faber to improve fleet efficiencies and blend metrics across one company-wide platform.”
Inbound integrations currently include Caterpillar, John Deere, Komatsu, and Volvo with additional partnerships developing, according to Tenna. Contractors that own equipment from different manufacturers that support their own telematics tracking capabilities can use Tenna’s inbound integrations to flow telematic data from these third-party OEM system. Contractors can then see and manage data for their entire fleet on one single platform, according to Tenna.
“The [OEM] integration is awesome because we already had telematics on about 70 pieces of equipment…,” said Pat L’Heureux, P.E., Project Manager at Severino Trucking, in a statement. “In under 5 minutes, I was able to set up all of these assets and have the information pull into Tenna successfully. The best part is now our company has one filtered dashboard that all my users can go to. This is great for our users who are not super tech-savvy. Having multiple data sources filter onto One Platform makes it such an incredible tool because now I can train my team on one tool. They are familiar with one tool. They can master one tool. It’s so much easier to go to one interface and have everything you need at your fingertips.”
