Hyster Company Offers Industry-First Telemetry Mobile App for New Levels of Data Driven Productivity

GREENVILLE, N.C. (Feb 20, 2019) – Effectively managing a fleet of lift trucks and their operators can mean the difference between improving uptime and return on investment, or potentially overlooking critical equipment and workforce needs. These needs, if left unnoticed or undiagnosed, may lead to equipment downtime, performance setbacks and operational and safety violations.

The pressures of balancing fleet efficiency and operator performance can be mitigated by having access to the right data. To effectively monitor and analyze these key data points and trends over time, lift truck fleets must be equipped with comprehensive telemetry systems.

Telemetry at the Speed of Your Business

The first of its kind in the material handling industry, the Hyster Tracker mobile app offers a new level of productivity. The app works as a companion to the existing Hyster Tracker desktop portal, bringing data-driven insights and management functionality to the warehouse floor for easier, more efficient fleet management.

The Hyster Tracker mobile app provides near-real time fleet utilization metrics and notifications when events like impacts or errors on pre-shift safety checklists occur. Smart dashboards make large data sets and information more manageable via smartphones, eliminating the need to get to a laptop or work station for critical information and site analysis. Powerful add-on features include:

Hyster Populate Service is a data integration service that combines information from Hyster Tracker and customer warehouse management systems.
Hyster Load Sensing can help enhance KPIs for loaded and unloaded trucks, as well as notify operators of possible capacity overloads.
“Lift trucks are really transforming into mobile data centers,” says Steven LaFevers, Vice President of Motive Power and Telematics for Hyster Company. “Fleet and operations managers don’t have the luxury of time and guess work. This mobile app solution delivers data and information to their fingertips for quick, informed responses to potential productivity disruptions.”

The mobile app is compatible with both android and iOS devices, and comes at no additional charge to Hyster Tracker users. Customers can download the app from the app store or from Google Play and enter existing Hyster Tracker credentials to get access.
