The equipment rental company is the first North American customer to purchase telematics-equipped Skyjacks

Blue

BlueLine Rental has become the first company in North America to receive Skyjack units equipped with Elevate telematics. 

“Elevate is a project we’ve been living and breathing for the past year and to see such a positive reception from rental companies, and to be able to provide them with an immediate impact, is extremely rewarding,” said David Swan, product manager of technology and innovation at Skyjack.

Elevate is a telematics solution created through a partnership between Skyjack and Trackunit. The solution incdlues two mobile applications, Elevate Go and Elevate On, which will enable users to digitally access fleet data directly from the field.

“At BlueLine Rental, we believe in working with each of our OEM partners on technology, as OEMs play an important part in successfully integrating telematics into the rental industry. Skyjack’s approach to telematics will be industry-leading, solidifying our decision to include ELEVATE on all of our Skyjack machines going forward,” said Rob Blackadar, vice president of operations at BlueLine Rental.
