JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company [NYSE:OSK] and a leading global manufacturer of mobile elevating work platforms and telehandlers, has announced the European launch of ClearSky Smart Fleet – the industry’s first platform for two-way fleet management and machine interactivity.
Built as a robust, constantly evolving IoT platform, it can deliver unique functionalities, deeper insights, and new ways to run more cost-effective operations. The next-generation platform, available as standard on most new equipment, transforms basic one-way telematics into a two-way solution that allows the machine and user to communicate with one another.
Innovative elements will revolutionise the way customers work, such as digitised daily processes to enhance efficiency, accurate and efficient machine location, additional equipment service capabilities, streamlined logistics with Automated Site Networks, and actionable, on-demand machine and fleet insights.
Customers can use the platform via an efficient mobile app or customisable web portal, which is integrated into JLG’s 24/7 e-commerce site, Online Express. For those with mixed fleets, an advanced API data feed enables them to incorporate ClearSky Smart Fleet data into their existing telematics systems.
“JLG has built ClearSky Smart Fleet to help customers do their jobs faster, more effectively and efficiently than ever before, so that they can reach new heights of productivity and profitability,” says James W Hahessy, Product Manager – Connected Solutions, JLG EMEA. “It’s a robust solution, purpose-built by JLG from the ground up and using feedback from customers to meet their needs. With more than 25 features, it will make their fleet management tasks easier and more efficient.”
The platform will evolve in the future, bringing more added value for customers and continuing to deliver an industry-leading, intuitive user experience. “We’ll adapt as our technology evolves and develop new features to meet the needs of a changing industry,” adds James.
