SIMPLE DATA. POWERFUL RESULTS.

The data you can get from your construction equipment these days opens up some valuable opportunities to improve the productivity of your fleet. Check out what you can accomplish by simply tracking asset hours and location.

1. MAKE ROUTINE MAINTENANCE MAKE YOU MORE MONEY
Hands down, the single best way to improve machine performance and uptime is to stay on top of routine maintenance.

Telematics data is “always on.” No paper entries to chase, no recording mistakes, so you get reliable, accurate information every time.
You avoid unplanned downtime because you know exactly when maintenance is due and can plan it when it makes the most sense for your job schedule.
Premium telematics platforms allow you to customize service intervals based on the actual working conditions of your equipment, which can improve uptime and reduce total service costs.

2. RIGHT SIZE YOUR FLEET
Combining location and hours data will help you get the most out of your fleet.

With a few keystrokes, you can see which machines on which job sites are being underutilized or not used at all, and which ones are working at maximum capacity. With an overall fleet view, you can determine where your equipment would be more productive.
Telematics easily monitors utilization trends, so you can identify machines that are consistently underutilized and evaluate if selling or trading would add more value.
Monitoring hours and location will also help you manage rentals more cost effectively. The data safeguards you from renting equipment you don’t need and ensures rentals are returned as soon as possible, so you don’t pay for non-working time.

3. KEEP YOUR OPERATIONS FROM WASTING TIME
Tracking asset hours and locations gives you a quick snapshot of which equipment needs fueling and where they are located. That information can save your operation time and fuel.

Fuel trucks don’t waste time and fuel driving around looking for the machine that needs them.
Service crews easily find the right machine and know what service is required.
Supervisors identify unauthorized usage or equipment theft and recover stolen equipment quickly.

“All new” Cat® equipment comes equipped with advanced data collection and transmission technologies. Many older machines can be retrofitted or updated with the latest Cat telematics systems, as well.

Your Cat dealer can help you get connected and show you how to start using your machine data.
