The Need for Telematics
No matter what size of aerial equipment fleet you have — from 1 to 100 machines — equipment management is something you do every day. From knowing how your equipment is performing or how often a piece is being utilized to where each unit is or when it is ready for maintenance, machine data can provide a lot of insight to your business. Today’s Genie Lift Connect telematics technology has evolved to help you gather, read and understand the information your machine is providing.
Data is great, but value is created when data is transformed into information; actionable information. In talking with you, we heard consistently that you want to know when to take action. With dashboards and alert notifications, the Genie Lift Connect program provides fleet managers with tools to maximize efficiency and minimize downtime.
In the past, you have told us that it was hard to leverage telematics because of your mixed fleets and multiple OEM telematics platforms. Today with the introduction of standard APIs, you now have a choice. The Genie Lift Connect solution provides you with data in two ways: You can utilize the Genie Lift Connect portal and all of its features, or alternatively, if you have an existing system you want to continue using, you can consume the data via a standard API.
At Genie, we believe partnering with you and your rental business is important. This is why we developed a new telematics solution that focuses on sharing more machine data. We believe that the more partners in the value chain with access to the machine data, the more efficient the rental industry becomes. We’ve designed the new Genie Lift Connect solution to share more information than any other player in our industry. This is truly an evolution in Genie’s telematics journey.
The Future of Data
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 failures in the field based on how the equipment is actually being used and proactively prescribing maintenance and service.
The opportunities for using the data from the new Genie Lift Connect program to monitor and manage your aerial fleet are limitless.
