JCB LiveLink updated for mixed fleets
By Joe Malone30 May 2018
JCB has updated its LiveLink telematics system to enable mixed-fleet operators to control all of their plant and equipment with one network.
JCB LiveLink is the company’s own telematics system and is used on over 160,000 JCB machines worldwide, recording more than 70,000 logins per month.
The system can now be integrated into non-JCB equipment, meaning rental companies can use one system for its fleet management. The company said it would also provide several developer toolkit services to assist with integrating machine data into existing systems and rental or fleet management software.
JCB’s managing director, Parts and Service, Ian Sayers, said, “Many customers run mixed fleets and most manufacturers now offer a form of telematics support. This means fleet operators can be faced with a range of complex data, often in different formats.
“This invariably means logging into and viewing several incompatible systems in order to get a comprehensive overview of the entire fleet’s performance, whereabouts and service requirements.
Sayers added, “The new JCB Control Tower eradicates this problem by consolidating information from across a complete fleet on to a single dedicated system. This allows those responsible for fleet management to interpret data from multiple sources, enabling more informed, more effective and faster decision making.”
