Quick Tip Video: CAT Connect

Whether you’re looking to draw more insights from your asset data, run a more productive jobsite, or transform your safety culture, your Cat dealer can help — with information, advice and a partnership to tackle your biggest challenges.


Hi, I’m Collin with today’s quick tip.

Today I’m going to share with you one of the great features of CAT Connect.

One of the most important features of CAT Connect is the asset tracking service.

Product link allows us to collect fleet location and utilization data from anywhere around the world.

This data gets aggregated in the Cloud and you can access it anywhere.

You are able to see the location of all your equipment, even down to a single piece of equipment.

You can quickly and easily monitor utilization and check for fault codes.

CAT Connect services provide the information, advice, and partnerships you need so you can make the most of your valuable machine data, manage your equipment and job sites more effectively and sharpen your competitive edge.

That’s been today’s quick tip.

Thanks for watching.


Asset Tracking — What You Can Do

By using Cat Connect Services from Altorfer Cat, you can keep track of your assets from anywhere and at any time. In the past, you would need to travel to every one of your sites to manually check for each of your assets. These in-person checks take time and resources to complete.

With Cat Connect, you can see all of your assets whenever you need to. These capabilities are possible because of Product Link. This technology records data about your fleet of machines and sends it to the cloud. Because it isn’t stored on one specific device, you can access this data anywhere — from your computer, tablet or smartphone.

You can track assets across the different sites that you manage and even see the location of one specific asset. The data collected with Product Link also lets you check for fault codes with your machinery. With capabilities like this, you can keep better track of your assets, more expertly manage your work sites and more.

Benefits of Cat Connect

Cat Connect helps you manage your work sites and keep track of your assets more efficiently. You can see the locations of all your machines to make sure they’re going where they need to be on a day-to-day basis. When your clients check in about the progress of the job, you can give them an update.

Being able to find fault codes as easily as opening up the Product Link data can help prevent mechanical issues in your assets. When a problem goes unnoticed for too long, it can cause more damage to the machine, leading to costly repairs. You know, too, that when a machine breaks, you aren’t just paying for the repair cost.

Extra costs can add up because of delays. Bringing in new machinery or waiting for the repairs to be finished may make the job longer and incur other costs, too. When you can avoid issues like this, you stay on schedule and save money.

Cat Connect can also give you an advantage over your competitors. When potential clients are looking for the right person for the job, Cat Connect will help you stand out from the competition and help you get more jobs and earn new client loyalty.
