A new fleet management solution engineered to meet your needs

Genie Lift Connect Telematics ProgrammeFocusing on providing actionable information, flexibility and transparency, the new Genie® Lift Connect™ programme marks a significant evolution in the Genie telematics journey. Designed to provide customers the ability to share more information than other offerings available in the industry, our new programme is engineered to adapt to customers’ needs, no matter the size of their aerial fleet. And with the Access Control keypad feature, customers also have the option of accessing all this data, at anytime from any place. At this year’s bauma, the Terex stand attracted crowds of visitors eager to find out more about the Genie Lift Connect programme!

  • Access dashboards and reporting to identify quickly what should be worked on first
  • Easily view their entire fleet

Machine utilisation and data under high protection
Genie Lift Connect users will benefit from the new Access Control keypad. This feature allows users to programme codes and operator ID cards, preventing unauthorized machine use.

The Access Control offering will be available to customers as an aftermarket option in late Q4 2019 and as a factory fit option in 2020.

Adaptable for flexible utilisation
The Genie Lift Connect solution provides data in two ways: Through the Genie Lift Connect portal and all of its features, or alternatively, if customers have an existing system they want to continue using, they can consume the data via a standard API. The Genie Lift Connect portal is available for desktops, as well as on mobile sites for use on tablets and smartphones.

Transparency focusing on sharing
The Genie Lift Connect telematics offering provides more data than any other solution in the aerial industry — accessing data from any Genie CAN bus-enabled machine, including fault codes, sensor data, fuel level, battery life and charge information.

Genie Lift Connect Telematics: unlimited opportunities!

“As time goes on, the data from the Genie Lift Connect offering will become more and more powerful. Initially, this information will be ‘descriptive’ focusing on what’s currently happening with a machine including how many hours are on a machine, where the machine physically is and if there are any fault codes on it. Over time, Genie Lift Connect data can be leveraged on a larger scale and used for ‘predictive’ and ‘prescriptive’ activities, such as predicting service calls in the field and proactively prescribing maintenance and service based on how the equipment is actually being used. In terms of access control and fleet management data the possibilities provided by the Genie Lift Connect programme are virtually unlimited.”

Did You Know?
Available in Europe and select Middle Eastern countries in Q2 2019, the new Genie Lift Connect telematics solution is provided as a standard feature with a 3-year subscription on all new machine purchases for Genie GS™ scissor lifts, Z®- and
S®-boom lifts and GTH™ telehandlers. Telematics hardware and a 3-year subscription can be purchased for Genie GR™ and QS™ vertical masts, and TZ™ trailer-mounted booms, and for Terex® and Genie branded light towers.

The subscription includes the ability to consume the data through the Genie Lift Connect portal and/or the standard ISO API (ISO15143-3). Aftermarket kits will be available soon after launch. These kits can be installed on Genie units equipped with a telematics-ready connector, which includes units dating back to 2015.

If at the time of machine purchase customers would like to add additional years of subscription service, they can add up to an additional six years of Genie Lift Connect telematics per machine. And, customers can always extend their Genie Lift Connect telematics contract as the machine’s initial 3-year term expires through the Genie aftermarket parts department.
