Smart technology company RCT has completed the delivery of its new fleet management solution, SmarTrack Global, to support a major Australian energy distributor's fleet of 29 pieces of heavy equipment.

Recently RCT supplied its new fleet management solution SmarTrack Global to the energy distributor which installed the solution on its fleet of crane borers and elevated work platforms.

The project follows on from earlier work to install SmarTrack on the company’s mixed forklift fleet.

To date, RCT has supplied SmarTrack to 29 individual pieces of heavy equipment across multiple machine types with additional units to be delivered in the future.

SmarTrack Global contains several new features such as global reporting which enables managers to monitor the status of every machine across multiple job sites using a single login.

Other features include managing operator access, machine speed, weight, seat and seatbelt monitoring, pre- and post-start checklists and improved out of service functions.

RCT Senior Business Development Manager – Industrial Grahame Don said the fleet management solution integrated seamlessly with their client’s equipment.

“SmarTrack Global can integrate with any piece of heavy equipment to provide an easy-to-use fleet management solution to companies across the industrial, materials handling, civil and construction industries,” he said.

“Our client needs to operate a very diverse fleet spread across multiple sites and SmarTrack Global will enable them to manage operator access, equipment inspection processes and utilisation reporting from one single platform on their smartphone.”

As required in the project brief RCT configured SmarTrack Global to interface with the energy distributor’s existing security cards which are issued to all employees.

A spokesperson for RCT’s client said going forward only staff members who had completed the relevant training programs and received authorisation would be able to operate the equipment.

“By implementing SmarTrack Global we could ensure that our operators were fully compliant with our policies and regulations which is extremely important,” they said.

“The system allowed us to set email alerts for the expiration of each of our operator’s high risk working license so we can now ensure each worker has a valid license at all times.”

“Our operators were quite pleased about not having to complete a paper-based pre-start inspection as well as being able to assess machine readiness prior to operation.”

“SmarTrack Global has many other functions that we need to explore and we look forward to implementing further efficiencies further down the track.”

RCT will continue to provide the energy distributor with after-sales support.
