By Catrin Jones23 November 2022

Finning, dealer of Caterpillar machines and equipment in the UK and Ireland, is encouraging its customers to sign up for the new Cat Productivity platform, a cloud-based system designed to gather and analyse a range of machine data that will boost machine performance and productivity.

The company says that customers will be able to track how much time their machines spend loading, hauling, and dumping and how work is progressing whether they are on-site or not.

Cat Productivity can be accessed from any internet device and can be used for mixed fleets of Cat and non-Cat machines. 

The platform can also gather accurate data from multiple jobsites and machines into one platform on everything from tonnes per hour, cycles per hour, load count by site or asset, working vs. idle hours and machine fuel burn.

Tom Barker, performance solutions consultant for Finning UK and Ireland, said, “The Cat Productivity platform gives customers the information they need to implement the right changes to improve site productivity by lowering the cost per ton through measures such as reducing idle time, reducing fuel monitor material tracking, and track individual assets to ensure they are optimally positioned to reduce cycle time.

“We already have a number of customers utilising the platform and have had some great feedback from them because it’s so easy to use and gives them all the information they need in one place, both for reporting purposes to their client and to implement effective changes which add up to big improvements in productivity.”
