In a bid to boost customers’ productivity and profitability, Volvo CE now offers its telematics system, CareTrack, fitted as standard on certain compact excavator and compact wheel loader models in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, along with a complimentary three-year subscription.
Volvo CE is pleased to announce that it will now fit CareTrack as standard on compact excavators 5 ton and upwards as well as all compact wheel loaders in the EMEA region.
Customers will be able to access the mapping and tracking, daily hours and service management functions free of charge for three years.
With some models customers will even have the possibility to receive more advanced operational data, such as fuel consumption and utilisation.
As the population of compact machines connected to CareTrack grows, Volvo CE expects to expand its range of services specifically for compact equipment. Among its ambitions, for example, is to offer unique compact machine reports.
“We live in a connected world and there has never been a better time to make a real impact with data use,” says Ivona Baldyga, manager for Productivity & Efficiency Services within Volvo CE Sales Region EMEA. “By connecting machines – compact or otherwise – we are able to help customers achieve greater efficiency, uptime and profitability in their businesses,”
Rental industry recognition
Earlier in the year, Volvo CE was bestowed the ERA Technical Committee Award at the 2019 European Rental Awards (ERA) in Madrid for its ‘continuous commitment to the satisfaction of the needs and requirements of the European rental industry’.
This industry recognition has encouraged Volvo CE more than ever in its efforts to improve compact connectivity and achieve its ambitions to be customers’ number one choice for uptime, total cost of ownership (TCO) and safety.
The decision to offer three years’ free access to CareTrack for many compact models as standard is just one example of this commitment.
