Cat Productivity web application puts machine data to work to increase jobsite productivity
Caterpillar has introduced Cat Productivity, a web-based application that delivers a comprehensive performance overview for equipment on the jobsite. Cat Productivity provides detailed production data, allowing companies to increase profit by remotely monitoring jobsite productivity.
The Cat Productivity application visualizes site-level data from the onboard systems across a fleet of machines and assets, transmitted by a Cat Product Link telematics device. Accessible via web browsers on desktop and mobile devices, users can analyze and compare Cat Productivity's consolidated and actionable site-level data and easily spot opportunities to lower cost and improve efficiency. This is all done ‘on the go,' without the need to visit a physical jobsite.
"Cat Productivity makes it easy for customers to dig into actionable production details and harness site-level data - taking the guesswork out of jobsite performance," said Fred Rio, product manager for Caterpillar's Construction Digital & Technology division. "Users can see which machines are productive, which are not and why, so corrective measures can be taken."
Cat Productivity pulls information directly from the "brains" of the machines to track and report detailed information on what the machine is doing. Reports and dashboards can be delivered directly to a user via email. Key data metrics include: idle time, fuel burn, location, payload, material and truck ID, speed, pass counts, total cycles and more. Additional analytics are provided by Cat Productivity to deliver an added layer of sophisticated insight and actionable information. Acting on that information results in dramatically improved machine efficiency, productivity, utilization and reduced per unit costs.
Cat Productivity is available for a broad range of new and legacy Cat machines, as well as other brands. Additional hardware may be required.

The all-new CASE TR340B compact track loader — operating at 90 horsepower with a 3,400-pound rated operating capacity — is the most powerful radial-lift CTL in the CASE lineup. Its all-new 8-inch LCD display improves on industry-leading CASE visibility with a new backup camera that is viewable in both forward and reverse operation. The display also showcases critical operating information and "trip" details. All-new electro-hydraulic controls, managed through the display, make it easier than ever for operators to dial CASE CTLs into specific application demands. All new cab controls and joysticks make the new TR340B easy to own and operate.
Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
