Mon December 16, 2013 - National Edition Construction Equipment Guide
Komatsu America Corp. has introduced a new mobile App that allows owners to see critical machine information from the KOMTRAX® fleet monitoring system on their Apple or Android smart phones or tablet devices. Building on the past decade of Komatsu’s KOMTRAX technology, the new KOMTRAX App gives owners access to this critical information anytime and anywhere in daily, weekly or monthly time increments.
The new App lets owners:
Locate an asset and obtain driving directions to it
Identify hours worked, idle time and fuel consumption
Identify caution codes with descriptions and time stamps
Understand machine movements
Analyze machine utilization
Additionally, the new mobile App gives owners the opportunity to directly contact their distributor, product support sales representative, salesperson, service provider, parts counter or KOMTRAX Coordinator by simply emailing, calling or texting.
Komatsu introduced KOMTRAX in 2005, and all new Komatsu America construction machines have come standard with KOMTRAX since that introduction. KOMTRAX sends machine operating information to a secure website utilizing wireless technology. Data such as operating hours, machine location, maintenance notifications, out of area notifications, machine utilization and fuel usage are relayed for analysis. The KOMTRAX fleet monitoring system monitors machine availability, reduces the risk of machine theft, allows for remote diagnosis by the distributor, and provides a wealth of other information to maximize business efficiency.
The KOMTRAX App can be downloaded for free at either the Apple Store or the Google Play Store.
