SNEAK PeeK: 5 NEW THINGS ABOUT VisionlinkTM

If you’re using VISIONLINK, you know it’s a great tool to help you:

  • Track the location of your assets
  • Keep utilization high
  • Monitor & manage fuel consumption
  • Identify opertors who need extra training
  • Plan & schedule maintenance
  • Maximize uptime

And that’s just the beginning.

Current VisionLink users—and others who are ready to try this technology—will be glad to hear we’re updating the software, making it faster and easier to use, especially with a smartphone or tablet. We don’t normally talk about new software until it’s ready for rollout, but in this case, there are so many big improvements coming, we decided to give you a sneak peek.

But first, a quick review. 

Cat® LINK Technology, includes two components: Cat Product Link™ and VisionLink.

  • Product Link is hardware; VisionLink is software.
  • Product Link grabs data from machine sensors and control systems and transmits it to VisionLink … which lets you view the data on any web-enabled device—and use it to make decisions.
  • Product Link hardware and a VisionLink subscription come standard with many Cat machines and can be used with both Cat and mixed fleets.
