JLG has released its ClearSky fleet management telematics solution.
Working with ORBCOMM the ClearSky system will provide asset management using ORBCOMM's ruggedized PT7000 solution. The PT 7000 is part of a comprehensive telematics solution that includes sensors, connectivity and the powerful FleetEdge web application, which provides construction equipment tracking and location data, operational status as well as analytic, predictive and diagnostic tools for every asset in the fleet.
ClearSky combines multi-year service plans and several hardware options providing equipment owners and operators flexible options for access to critical engine and equipment operational data.
How it works
Data points, including location, engine hours, usage, fuel and battery levels, and maintenance schedules, are conveniently available in real-time and accessible from desktop or mobile devices. The dashboard, settings, and a library of widgets can be edited and prioritized according to customer preferences.
The system also monitors fault codes and other critical alerts, which can be sent via text and email. ClearSky data can be integrated with customers’ enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for seamless fleet management.
Data is transmitted securely from anywhere in the world using cellular technology or satellite communications, depending upon the device installed to suit the geographic location of the asset. All transmissions are routed through a secure data center to a customer’s business system or through a user-friendly web interface available on desktops and mobile devices.
“We developed ClearSky based on customer feedback in order to provide more focused, meaningful data delivered in a cost-effective solution,” said Jonathan Dawley, global vice president, aftermarket at JLG. “The new, more intuitive system makes it easy for them to use the data to proactively manage and maintain their fleets. As a result, ClearSky lets users enjoy the benefits of improved fleet performance and productivity, increased equipment uptime, enhanced fleet security and visibility, and reduced cost of ownership.”
ClearSky is offered as a factory-installed option for new JLG machines or as an aftermarket installation kit to retrofit JLG products in the field. Subscription options are available in Data Only and Data & Portal packages, allowing users to integrate ClearSky telematics into an existing system or take advantage of JLG's user-friendly portal to view machine information.
“ORBCOMM stood out among all other telematics systems for their proven expertise in servicing large heavy equipment OEMs and providing the flexibility, scalability, and resources needed to support the global deployment of their solutions across JLG’s customer base,” said Dawley. “We look forward to partnering with ORBCOMM to develop the next generation of telematic solutions and help define the way our customers use them in the construction and equipment rental industries.”
