Fleet Management, a web-based portal for service providers, also receives information sent from the ConnectMe unit. This gives your service provider the opportunity for real-time access to critical wheelchair data and analytics. Why is this important? With access to this data, your service provider can start diagnosing the issue and, in some cases, resolve the issue remotely. For example, your service provider can log into Fleet Management to identify what error code you are experiencing or evaluate your battery health. What does this mean for you? A faster repair evaluation, so you can get back to doing what’s important to you. This can be particularly helpful if you reside in a rural setting where it can otherwise be difficult to access service in a timely way.
Ready to get started? As mentioned, all new Permobil M & F-series Corpus & Corpus VS models are Connect-ready. To start transmitting wheelchair data to the MyPermobil app and Fleet Management portal, the wheelchair must be activated. This can be done at or after delivery of the wheelchair. Are you a consumer or clinician? Learn more about MyPermobil and how to activate a Connect-ready wheelchair. Are you a service provider? Learn more about the Fleet Management portal.
Join us for the rest of this series, as we go into more detail about the benefits of MyPermobil for the end user, and Fleet Management for the service provider.
