AKRON, OH -- (Marketwired) -- 04/08/14 -- Trelleborg Wheel Systems, the world's leading producer of solid industrial tires, has today announced the launch of its Interfit service concept in the U.S. Through its national network of servicing dealers, Trelleborg will create America's first nationwide industrial tire fitting network, bringing together the very best in industrial tires with the very best in servicing.
Jason Canning, Program Manager, says: "Servicing is a key part of our offering to our national accounts -- bringing together our world class products with America's leading industrial tire servicing businesses to meet the needs of America's largest companies. We decided to take this further and create a program that will allow our dealers to grow their businesses and benefit in many different ways from their decision to choose Trelleborg. We wanted to create something new and different -- a program that reflects genuine partnership and gives real opportunities, and that's what we've done through Interfit.
"By joining the program, tire servicing dealers benefit in a number of ways -- we will give them marketing, commercial and technical support, in addition to our IT service platform through which they can manage their business. We have also created an affinity program for dealers that further enhance the offering; as dealers progress up the program they receive additional benefits including enhanced support and commissions."
Trelleborg is now recruiting dealers to join the Interfit program, as Canning explains: "We are looking for the right partners to join Interfit; if you are an industrial tire servicing dealer and you want to grow your business, then we want to hear from you. We believe that Interfit will set the standard for tire servicing in the U.S., and that means that the dealers who share our passion for excellence no matter how large they are or where they are, will be the people who will really succeed in this program."

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds.
