Bobcat launches new machine IQ telematics system
By Catrin Jones11 April 2023
Bobcat has introduced a new telematics system that allows users to remotely access critical information about their machines from any device, anywhere and anytime. With this new tool, users can monitor their machines’ health, track important data and enhance their machines’ maintenance, security and performance.
The system, called Machine IQ, is available in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Dutch, and all European and Israeli users can access the premium features of Machine IQ free of charge until the end of June 2023.
Bobcat says that one of the most significant benefits of Customer Machine IQ is the ability to receive notifications about both planned and unplanned maintenance. Users can review utilisation reports to optimise their machines’ performance, track fuel consumption and reduce idle times.
In addition, the Machine IQ system offers improved security, allowing users to protect their machines from theft or misuse. The system includes features such as geofencing, motion detection and curfew capabilities, with customisable notifications sent to the customer’s device if a potential issue arises.
The company says that the new Machine IQ telematics system offers users a powerful and easy-to-use tool for maximising their machines’ uptime, efficiency and security. With 24/7 access to critical information, users are able to make more informed decisions and better manage their machines’ maintenance schedules.
To access Machine IQ, users can create an account on my.bobcat.com or download the Mobile App from Google Play or Apple Store.
