At the WIRTGEN GROUP, technologically advanced construction machines and sophisticated telematics solutions go hand in hand. And they keep their users two steps ahead of the game on the construction site.
The demands on project management grow as the complexity of construction projects increases. All construction sites have three things in common – the pressures of keeping costs, quality and completion deadlines on track. Today, the WIRTGEN GROUP already offers a perfectly coordinated package of solutions for anyone wishing to increase productivity and improve their future prospects.
With the Operations Center, we now offer you a central platform for all current and future digital solutions from the WIRTGEN GROUP.
The John Deere Operations Center™ for construction machinery
Plan, monitor, maintain, and analyse – the Operations Center enables you to manage your entire construction site at any time and from anywhere. For more transparency, efficiency and productivity.

The WITOS FleetView fleet management system makes processes more efficient thanks to system-supported processing, sharing, visualisation and analysis of machine and positioning data.
Take advantage of a constant overview of the most important operational data of your machine fleet: with WITOS, the telematics solution from the WIRTGEN GROUP.
From systematic monitoring of the operational status of your machines in everyday use to supporting maintenance and diagnostic processes. This minimises response times and idle times and optimises maintenance work. WITOS data can also be imported into existing systems via suitable interfaces.
SmartService inspection and maintenance agreements ideally complement the fleet management options. With WITOS FleetView, customers can keep track of the location and operational status of their machines at any time and from anywhere. This enables timely responses to scheduled maintenance appointments and assures the long-term value retention of their machines.
WITOS FleetView is an uncompromising solution that supports your activities in various different areas. Its intuitive user-interface enables you to quickly and easily obtain a clear overview of the current operational status of your fleet. Learn more about the wide range of options it offers.

The WIRTGEN Group has developed smart software solutions and integrated them into the WITOS infrastructure in the form of modules to optimise the process of connecting value chains in planning, execution and operations.
Project profitability can be increased with the aid of digital processes and tools.
For example, the full version of WITOS Paving Plus from VÖGELE is the software-based process management solution for asphalt paving. It connects everyone involved in the process chain, from the asphalt mixing plant to the paver operator, and consists of a total of five modules. As a result, site planning (Control), mix supply (Materials), mix transport (Transport), asphalt paving (JobSite) and subsequent process analysis (Analysis) can all be managed in real time in one single system. The site manager and paving crew can respond to potential disruptions quickly and systematically and make paving processes much more efficient.
Once a construction project has been completed, it can also be analysed and documented. This data can be used to identify ways for the optimisation of processes in future projects. As the data and information can be shared with all contractors working on a site, construction processes also become more transparent, which enables all parties involved to carry out their work on the basis of the same, constantly updated information. This ensures sustainable optimisation of the paving process.
WITOS Paving Docu provides construction contractors with a smart solution for the digital documentation and analysis of asphalt paving projects.
WITOS Paving Docu can be used for the registration of paving data and delivery documents and automated transmission of project site reports.
With this system, the road paver acts as a server and enables data to be shared between the machine and a smartphone app via WLAN. With the app, site managers and paver operators can start jobs with WITOS Paving Docu via the machine terminal and thus record a wealth of machine and paving data such as the working width, paving speed and stops and the effective paving time. In addition, the system can be used to scan delivery documents via QR code (or enter them manually) as well as for continuous calculation of paved areas, material quantities and surface densities. After finishing the job, site reports are automatically sent to selected recipients by email.
Comprehensive process optimisation, simple documentation or paving temperature monitoring – WITOS Paving Plus, WITOS Paving Docu and RoadScan from VÖGELE are the ideal digital solutions for all paving needs.WITOS Paving
With the Smart Compaction product family, HAMM has developed a whole range of solutions for smart and simple compaction.
The solutions provided by Smart Compaction focus on digital interfacing of the operator and the machine: Smart Doc is a tool for comprehensive measurement and documentation of compaction in asphalt paving and earthworks. Smart Compact is a digital compaction assistant that actively assists the roller driver with the determination and automatic regulation of the required compaction force in both drums.
With Smart Compaction, you are immediately able to measure, document and analyse compaction processes. Access information, manage processes, and make decisions based on qualified data.Smart Compaction
The brand-independent examples show that WITOS enables customers to select the solution they need for each specific application from a toolbox containing the ideal tools. As a result, customers can significantly increase the efficiency of their projects with regard to costs, quality and time, and precisely manage their entire machine fleet at the same time.
Precise construction site data for higher productivity, efficiency and sustainability
WPT continuously documents all construction site information without any intervention on the part of the machine operator. Milling performance data is transmitted to a data server via cellular connection.
The satellite-based WPT - WIRTGEN PERFORMANCE TRACKER serves the purpose of measuring and documenting machine performance on the site during ongoing construction projects. The measured data are continuously analysed and displayed to users in a clearly laid out form. WPT directly delivers valuable information about the construction site and, over time, can contribute to the improvement of productivity, efficiency, quality and sustainability on each individual construction site. At present, WPT is available for all current compact and large milling machines from WIRTGEN and the models of the WR series.
WPT for cold milling machines uses a laser scanner to measure the cross-sectional profile to be milled. Surface milling performance and milling volume are then precisely measured using GNSS positioning and other sensors. At the same time, Performance Monitoring in the Operations Center even allows the measured data to be clearly displayed in real-time during the ongoing process. In the case of WPT for WR series machines, all relevant site information, such as the working width and depth, the area and distance worked, fuel, water, and binding agent consumption etc., is registered by means of GNSS positioning and high-precision sensor systems on the machine. This makes it possible to show exactly where and how much binding agent or water was added and, in turn, the respective mixing quality. A detailed final report enables exact documentation of the mixing performance, the quality of the work and the efficiency of the process at precisely defined locations.
A control panel provides the machine operator with a continuously updated overview of all relevant job data. After confirmation by the machine operator, e.g. at the end of a day’s shift, the report is sent to the machine owner by email in Excel and PDF format.
WPT - WIRTGEN PERFORMANCE TRACKER
WIRTGEN PERFORMANCE TRACKER (WPT) is the first system capable of accurately and reliably documenting the actual milling work performed. At the same time, the infrastructure of the WITOS telematics solution ensures the uninterrupted, smooth and seamless flow of information between the machine, the operator, the service workshop and the project planning office.WIRTGEN assistance systems
