Genie to Release Fleet Management Platform ‘Lift Connect’

Jan. 31, 2019

Genie’s Lift Connect program, a new rental fleet management solution, will soon allow managers to know how their equipment is performing, how often a piece is being utilized, and when each unit is ready for maintenance.

According to the company, with Lift Connect, customers are able to receive data from mixed fleets and multiple OEM telematics platforms. All users can also choose to utilize the Genie Lift Connect portal, or if with an existing system, can receive the data via a standard API. Dashboards and alert notifications also provide fleet managers with tools to maximize efficiency and minimize downtime.

Initially, the information Lift Connect provides will focus on what is currently occuring with a machine, including the amount of hours on it, its location on site, and if there are fault codes on it. Over time, the program can also be data leveraged and used for “predictive” and “prescriptive” activities, such as predicting failures in the field, and prescribing maintenance.

Christine Zeznick, product and business development manager, said in a press release, “Our customers are operating their businesses faster and more efficiently than ever before, constantly looking for ways to add value and drive business growth. One technology that is opening up new opportunities for rental businesses is the use of telematics.”

Lift Connect will be available in North America in early 2019.
