Caterpillar's VisionLink Productivity online web platform for cold planers delivers near real-time machine and job site data that can improve productivity for contractors.

Detailed data such as waiting time for trucks, cutting and travel at the job site, distance cut, fuel burn, and cycle mapping is collected by VisionLink Productivity, which then analyzes the data and summarizes it for users. The goal is to provide new insights into productivity and equipment utilization.

VisionLink Productivity segments data into easy-to-navigate dashboards, providing multiple ways to view more detailed data and key product indicators (KPIs). Contractors can quickly track the hours and distance milled daily and visualize excess travel, slow milling speeds, and stoppage. Detailed reports are available in various digital formats, eliminating manual data gathering.

Contractors can take advantage of VIsionLink Productivity to measure the performance of cycle segments, track and eliminate unnecessary fuel consumption, and compare operations between shifts, machines, and projects. When unnecessary waste is identified and reduced, users can achieve longer, more productive milling cycles, improve estimating for future projects, and optimize profitability by increasing efficiency and reducing costs.

The system can gather and summarize machine telematics and job site data from all equipment on a job site, regardless of brand, and can be accessed via the cloud from mobile, tablet, or desktop devices.
