Telematics is enabling a great deal of market research in the form of data analytics and eventually helping customers in efficient fleet management.
Our advanced technology machines have in-built features for tracking and monitoring key performance/operating parameters through a telematics system. The machine data gets uploaded to the company server and is then analyzed for feedback to the customer as well as for any diagnostic, development, or corrective steps. The data is an excellent resource for the field support team who can suitably interpret it and take requisite steps like resolving error codes, identify operator training needs, ensure timely maintenance, etc.
