With growing supply chain complexity, accelerating e-commerce demand, and rising labor shortages, the need for logistics and manufacturing enterprises to harness the power of digitization to boost the safety, efficiency, and sustainability of their warehouse operations has never been greater.
To enable enterprises to address this challenge, VIA Technologies, Inc. is introducing the VIA WorkX Connect Cloud Management Service for forklift fleets equipped with the VIA Mobile360 Forklift Safety System. By providing instant access to a wealth of critical vehicle utilization, driver performance, and safety alert data and statistics through a live dashboard, VIA WorkX Connect enables administrators to glean deeper and sharper insights into their forklift operations and immediately identify opportunities for improvement to safety, efficiency, and wellbeing. Highlights include:
Safety Alerts: including driver fatigue, phone usage, and smoking; front and rear pedestrian detection incidents; driver camera blockages; unauthorized drivers; and geofencing. Snapshots of each incident are automatically taken by the appropriate camera and stored on the cloud for further analysis. Video retrieval is available for further analysis of events and accidents.
Vehicle Usage: including average and actual utilization trends, real-time location tracking, driver and trip records, and safety alerts.
Vehicle Inspection: including inspection report submission rates and vehicle health and reliability checklists based on OSHA guidelines.
Driver Behavior: including vehicles driven, hours spent driving, and safety alerts.
We have developed the VIA WorkX Connect Cloud in close collaboration with key global customers from multiple industries to meet their practical operational needs,” said Richard Brown, VP of International Marketing, VIA Technologies, Inc. “By supporting the real-time capture and analysis of rich and granular forklift fleet usage and safety data, the service enables enterprises to reduce the risks of accidents, enhance staff morale and wellbeing, and minimize insurance costs and potential disruptions.”
