IN THE AGE OF SMART IRON, you see technology growing at a rapid rate. And, while you understand how it can help you reduce costs or increase productivity, it’s the kind of investment to weigh carefully.
Checking basic telematics information – operating hours, location, fuel consumption and idle time – is one of the easiest ways to reduce operating costs. Cutting idle time, for example, saves fuel and maintenance costs. Showing operators their numbers can be a great way to improve their performance.
With Cat Connect technologies and services you’ll be able to optimize your entire fleet. With a tap or a click, you can get the numbers you need and make them count on the bottom line.
FOUR WAYS TECHNOLOGY CAN HELP YOU WIN.
Getting more done at the lowest cost is the goal. Seems simple enough, but as we all know the challenges are many. The good news is that in the same way technology has made our lives easier, it can help you find new ways to win on the job.
1) FEWER PEOPLE GET MORE WORK DONE.
Laser- and satellite-guided machines achieve grade and compaction specs without a single grade checker or surveyor. Because technologies like Cat GRADE boost accuracy, jobs are completed faster.
CAT GRADE WITH ASSIST reaches grade up to 45% faster than manual controls.
2) OPERATOR ACCURACY IS BETTER
NO MATTER WHAT THE EXPERIENCE LEVEL.
With automated technologies that “assist” with bucket and blade positions, operators are fast and precise across all levels of experience.
CAT PAYLOAD INCREASES
load accuracy and consistency, which increases productivity and reduces cost.
3) SAFETY PERFORMANCE IMPROVES.
Monitoring and detection technologies on both workers and machines increase awareness of hazards on the job so that workers can avoid them.
CAT DETECT REDUCES accidents and near misses and supports safety culture.
4) EQUIPMENT MONITORING IS ONLY A CLICK AWAY.
Cat & non-Cat asset location, performance, fuel burn and idle time can be checked on any wireless device. Refueling is optimized. Maintenance schedules kept.
CAT TELEMATICS DATA delivers real time control over operating costs.
