Caterpillar is showcasing an industry-leading lineup of machines, technology and services at this years’ CONEXPO-CON/AGG. A focus of our exhibits is technology and innovations that help customers succeed. And a prime example of that is Cat® Connect.
Cat Connect technologies help customers get the most value from Cat equipment or mixed fleets. It makes smart use of technology and services to monitor, manage and enhance operations so customers can take control of their jobsites. Using the information gathered from machines equipped with Cat Connect technologies, customers can find new ways to enhance production, reduce costs and improve safety.
“People think they have to be a large fleet owner of a mine or quarry or something huge, a huge operation,” said John Thomas, Caterpillar Construction Technologies and Solutions marketing and strategy manager. “We have customers capturing value from Cat Connect that have one or two machines in their fleet.”
Cat Connect gives customers the flexibility to mix and match technologies and services in four key areas such as equipment management, productivity, safety and sustainability that can help meet the specific needs of their business.
“We’re combining construction technologies that we can offer across our machine family, as well as on machines that aren’t branded Cat or older Cat machines. Also, we couple that with dealer connected services to deliver that value.
Cat Connect is easy for customers to use and integrate into their fleet.
“There’s a lot of folks that are scared of technology. They think it’s very complex,” Thomas said. “But what customers don’t understand is they don’t have to go right to the most complex solutions. Our dealers are prepared and we’re prepared to talk to customers on the floor at CONEXPO about how they can start small with really simple technologies. Introduce those technologies into their business so they can see the benefits and help them grow their businesses and as they feel they’re ready to take that next step to add more capabilities to their fleets.”
With Cat Connect, customers of all sizes can build the more successful business they want.
Cat Connect makes smart use of technology and services to improve your jobsite efficiency. Using the data from technology-equipped machines, you’ll get more information and insight into your equipment and operations than ever before.Learn More About Cat Connect
