IPD announces Industrial Digital Solutions, TruckRx

Feb. 7, 2022
IDS was formed to connect assets with owners, managers, and service channels to increase efficiency and reduce downtime; the company’s first product, TruckRX, will be available in early April.

IPD, a supplier of replacement engine replacement parts, announced a new company called Industrial Digital Solutions (IDS). IDS was born from the folks at IPD who have been working with independent engine rebuilders to make high-quality engine parts for diesel and natural gas engines since 1955. IDS was formed to simply and intelligently connect assets with owners, managers, and service channels to increase efficiency, reduce fuel costs, and prevent downtime.

"IPD has a history that's over 65 years old working with engine parts," Michael Badar shared, president of both IPD and IDS. "Our customer base told us that they see plenty of services that will connect and monitor your assets, but most are overly complex and expensive. We wanted to develop a digital solution that's easy to use and affordable."

The first product that will be available in early April is TruckRx. IDS is partnering with South Carolina-based Diesel Laptops as their technology provider to deliver the easy-to-use interface that provides a simple solution for immediate diagnostics on your smart phone or tablet. TruckRx works with all makes and models of heavy-duty trucks, according to the company.

"Over the years, we've had many conversations with IPD about working together and we are proud to supply the technology for TruckRx," said Tyler Robertson, CEO of Diesel Laptops.

"Just plug the TRX-Link device into a diagnostic port and it sends fault codes and what parts are needed to fix it," said Vince Barbarie, Chief Technology Officer, IDS. "The truck driver can email fault codes and productivity reports to service providers via the TruckRx mobile app. We have a future version in the works that adds cloud connectivity to TruckRx and are developing a product offering called MachineRx that is engineered for off-highway equipment."

The TruckRx app will be available to download for free on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
