Mecalac has announced its fleet management system, MyMecalac, is now available in North America. This telematics solution delivers everything from high-level summaries to specific machine details, including maintenance, inspection, and damage notifications, to empower fleet managers to boost efficiency and machine uptime.
Mecalac’s telematics system, developed in partnership with Trackunit, is accessible through a web portal, mymecalac.com, and a mobile app, MyMecalac. The system comes standard on all excavators and loaders in North America. The onboard telematics box continuously communicates information to the web portal. Users simply login to the web portal or app to access all machine data in real-time.
MyMecalac provides a complete fleet overview that shows users which machines are in top shape, and which need immediate attention or will require service soon. From there, those using the service can zoom into a specific machine to see everything from fuel consumption and oil pressure to the current engine load percentage and machine hours. This data allows fleet managers to schedule downtime for refueling, maintenance, and repairs rather than having these tasks interrupt project timelines and profitability. Additionally, after registering in the web portal, alerts can be set up to notify the user when maintenance is required or when a fault code appears. This technology enables dealer technicians to remotely diagnose machine issues.
The alert feature also acts as a theft prevention tool by notifying the owner if the machine moves from a designated zone or operates outside of designated hours.
