Yanmar Construction Equipment Europe (CEE) has announced the roll-out of its state-of-the-art fleet management system to construction professionals across the UK and Ireland. From August 2018, SmartAssist Remote will be fitted as standard to selected new carrier and crawler excavators.
Using satellite telematics technology, the system provides site managers with unrivalled visibility on equipment location and status. Real-time data (accessible via Smartphone or PC) highlights fuel consumption, engine load, running hours and system idling, while next-generation geofencing capability activates immediately if a machine leaves its designated area.
Full integration with the engine control unit (ECU) allows engineers to easily plan and carry-out maintenance operations, while error reporting and system abnormality alerts minimise unnecessary downtime. Additional benefits include a custom interface, accessible in every European language, and Luna Operating Reports for periodic inspection.
Andreas Hactergal, sales and marketing director at Yanmar CEE, commented: “Introducing state-of-the-art fleet management technology for operators across the UK and Ireland demonstrates our commitment to leading the compact construction market.
“Developed in-house, our SmartAssist Remote telematics solution aims to maximise work potential, improve productivity, minimise downtime and optimise fleet efficiency. The operator can make immediate and informed decisions based on real-time insight, while comprehensive daily reporting helps site managers to understand total fleet performance.”
SmartAssist Remote will be available as a standard fitting on selected new carrier and crawler excavators across the 2018 Yanmar CEE portfolio from August 2018. Subscription is free for the first five years.
