In 2013 InfoLink received the International Forklift of the Year Award in the “Forklift Truck Solutions” category for revolutionising materials handling technology for well-known UK office supplies wholesaler Spicers, by reducing its maintenance and repair costs by 90%.
Another overseas example is Spanish express logistics provider, Palibex. Its systems director Guillermo Cagigas says, “InfoLink has helped us to optimise our entire MHE fleet and streamline our operations by giving us a clear, daily overview of the time each lift truck is in use, the number of metres covered, how long each battery lasts as well as impacts, so we can ensure both trucks and merchandise are treated with utmost respect.”
In essence, InfoLink helps customers monitor and manage the efficient use of their forklift fleet and total operations by delivering actionable data through content-rich, interactive dashboards that help fleet managers focus on real opportunities and avoid wasted time deciphering mounds of data.
Darryl Shafto, Goscor Lift Truck MD, says that this technology enables greater efficiency of the fleet giving a complete overview of equipment usage. “Also, because of the inclusion of safety-related impact monitoring, the operators drive more carefully, resulting in significantly less damage.
Apart from impact monitoring and history, InfoLink, through its user-friendly interface provides management fleet-wide visibility into an array of other operator and fleet information, such as battery usage, truck utilisation, service needs, and more.
Darryl adds, “Globally Crown has helped its customers gain a revolutionary perspective on their fleets by connecting the machines, operators and facilities to create a uniquely integrated and efficient operation. This technology will help fleet owners reduce the total cost of ownership significantly,” he concludes.
