Skyjack has started delivering off-the-line machines equipped with Elevate, its telematics solution for off-highway fleets, and BlueLine Rental is its North American launch customer. As a long-standing Skyjack customer, BlueLine seized the opportunity after hearing Skyjack’s approach to telematics. The rental company has ordered Elevate on all Skyjack units for 2018.

The solution includes two mobile-first apps, Elevate On and Elevate Go, which will enable BlueLine personnel to digitally access critical fleet data directly from the field.

“Elevate is a project we’ve been living and breathing for the past year and to see such a positive reception from rental companies, and to be able to provide them with an immediate impact, is extremely rewarding,” said David Swan, product manager of technology and innovation at Skyjack.

“At BlueLine Rental, we believe in working with each of our OEM partners on technology, as OEMs play an important part in successfully integrating telematics into the rental industry,” said Rob Blackadar, vice president of operations at BlueLine Rental. “Skyjack’s approach to telematics will be industry-leading, solidifying our decision to include Elevate on all of our Skyjack machines going forward.”

The adoption of telematics with a mobile first approach is an example of a leading practice offered by Elevate, which bolsters rental companies’ commitment to pragmatic technology, and improves business processes.
