Tracking a fleet of construction machines across several locations is critical to a business’s success especially where equipment is deployed across multiple sites or in rental businesses where machines are being used by a range of operators. “As remote fleet tracking and management becomes more commonplace, machine owners and Managers are looking for a system that not only provides the right data but is easy to use,” says Doug, General Manager of Sales and Marketing.
After three years of intensive review on their existing remote monitoring technology, Kobelco’s newest system Geoscan ensures equipment owners can access the data that matters most in the business.
Geoscan provides easy access to important machine data such as fuel consumption, operating hours, maintenance data and many more attributes. The information is easily accessible by customers via their smartphones.
“Statistics like location, work mode, fuel burn and key on-off times can help fleet managers and owner operators assess asset utilisation, plan maintenance and make decisions about how to use equipment for optimal productivity and return on investment,” Doug says.
