Description: It all started with one big idea: Give truck drivers an easy-to-use, accurate tool to perform their pre- and post-trip inspections. This tool would use radio frequency identification (RFID) technology to track and transmit data, making inspections virtually automatic.
Eric Manegold had the idea. Bill and Brett Brinton had the business expertise. Mike McQuade and Dan Mayer had the technical know-how. Together, they created the first Electronic Vehicle Inspection Report (EVIR) system in history. The original model was made from something fairly low-tech: a piece of wood. The first prototype was described as a “remote control on steroids.” Though designed for the trucking industry, this powerful tool would be launched in a very unusual way.
Today, as one of North America's largest telemetrics companies, Zonar’s mission is to bring the most advanced technology, the greatest value and the best possible service to its customers.
