      JLG Industries has selected Orbcomm to provide an end-to-end telematics solution platform for its global fleet of aerial work platforms and telehandlers. Orbcomm’s PT 7000 solution will provide global wireless connectivity along with hardware and a web platform for asset management.

      JLG will use Orbcomm’s PT 7000 as well as other telematics hardware to provide its customers with access to critical engine and equipment operational data, including location, engine hours, utilization, fuel levels and maintenance schedules, and to monitor fault codes or other critical alerts. The hardware is compatible with Orbcomm’s web interface, which has been tailored for the JLG ClearSky platform, to deliver dashboards, advanced reporting capabilities and analytics as well as custom charts, alerts, self-service administrative functions, and more. The solution will also be available through a mobile app, enabling customers to manage their aerial equipment on the go, in real time from any mobile device.

      JLG began rolling out the Orbcomm solution in the first quarter of 2017 to pilot customers in North America and will continue deployment to customers in key regions including North America, Europe, China and Australia throughout 2017 and beyond.
