The digitalization of compact construction equipment such as vibrating plate compactors offers huge potential for construction companies and equipment rental companies. Until now, digitalization and automation efforts in the industry have mostly been directed at larger classes of machines. Hatz Performance Tracking, as a plug-and-play solution, now enables the fast and uncomplicated digital connection of construction equipment to your fleet management system, as Dr. Maren Hellwig, the person responsible for digital business development at Hatz, explains: "With Performance Tracking, machine operators have access to the operating and position data of their compact equipment fleet in no time at all. All that is needed is the easily retrofittable Hatz IoT module and a corresponding license agreement." The Hatz IoT module is a very compact and robust component for data transmission that is mounted close to the engine.
Providing engine data intuitively
Performance Tracking visualizes the operating data of the engines and with their help enables the monitoring of the condition and productivity of machines, the optimization of dispatching, the localization of missing equipment, effective theft protection thanks to geofencing functionality, and optimized maintenance planning. The latter effectively reduces downtime on the construction site. The Hatz IoT dashboard provides the engine data clearly and intuitively. Thanks to a clear license range, machine operators can find the right solution for every need.
Always the right solution
Interested parties can find more information and the online solution configurator at hatz.digital. The solution configurator helps to match the customer's own goals with the various features of the performance tracking licenses. This ensures that customers always find the right solution for their individual needs.
