With the “Monitoring” function, they can enter locations and times that define where and when machines in their fleet are permitted to operate. The web application further offers a map view to locate individual machines, a summary of past or pending servicing and maintenance appointments, messages and a history view of operating and position data.

“The telematics solution is straightforward, and we don’t have to keep thinking about our machines,” says Aicher. “The system has significantly increased the capacity utilization of our machine park. What’s more, we can always be confident that there will be no avoidable trips to the workshop during a construction project. As a result, our operations can be planned more effectively and are more cost-efficient, too, because we always have three weeks’ notice ahead of service appointments, enabling us to reschedule machines if necessary or make use of substitute WIRTGEN GROUP machines. This way, we don’t have to interrupt our work.” And when a machine is due for servicing, the SmartService package helps the contractor GSI-Asphalt to minimize costs. Companies that use a variety of machines from WIRTGEN, VÖGELE and HAMM or – as in the case of GSI-Asphalt – a fleet made up entirely of WIRTGEN GROUP products, enjoy further benefits: their contact at the relevant WIRTGEN GROUP subsidiary can coordinate a single service or maintenance appointment for multiple WIRTGEN, VÖGELE and HAMM machines. This further increases machine availability.
