JCB India Ltd. has launched the “Livelink” telematics technology for its entire range of machines offered in the country. The new Livelink system allows the user to remotely monitor the machine and provides alerts on real-time location, maintenance messages, machine and fleet hours etc., thus allowing the user to remain in control of the machine no matter where he/she might be.
JCB’s new telematics system helps in ensuring that the machines are operated at correct times and helps protect them from theft. JCB’s new Livelink telematics system comes with the features such as remote monitoring of the machine for any malfunction and identifying and removing wasteful idling time, thus improving utilisation and lowering fuel costs. Other features of the Livelink system are:
- Service – Accurate Hours Monitoring leads to improved maintenance planning as machines can be maintained at the most convenient time for your operation.
- Operation – The Fuel Reporting System enables operators to see actual fuel consumption, improving control of fuel stocks and planning of fuel orders.
- Security – enables the user to track the location and also receive the tow away alerts.
Thanks to this telematics system, the user can now monitor the machine through SMS, Email or by visiting JCB’s Livelink website. JCB India Limited is a fully-owned subsidiary of JC Bamford Excavators Limited, UK and has over 300 models, with operations in over 150 countries worldwide. Vipin Sondhi, Managing Director & CEO, JCB India Ltd. said, “JCB Livelink is a feature which has the potential to change the way Indian Construction Machinery Customer operates.
