OEM Data Delivery, a developer of technology tools for managing worksites and high-value equipment, and Versalift East, a manufacturer of aerial devices and trailers, last week announced an alliance designed to benefit buyers of aerial equipment who want GPS capabilities as part of their equipment package. The alliance calls for Versalift to distribute, and install as part of its manufacturing process, the OEM DD ST-900 Service Tracker.
The ST-900 is a compact, powerful tracking instrument designed for heavy service environments. It captures detailed work and idle hour logs, and provides a way to manage high-value assets, monitor equipment activity, and prevent theft. It is wireless, paperless and hands-free. The ST-900 is designed to be a versatile, economical alternative to traditional GPS devices. It provides true cellular capabilities without the high fees that typically accompany cellular devices.
“We believe we’ve gained an important competitive advantage with this integrated program,” said Keith Joseph, president of Versalift East. “Our customers want cellular capability, but often balk at the exorbitant ongoing fees. The ST-900 gives them the information and tracking capabilities they want, without the monthly sticker shock.”
The ST-900 offers the additional benefit of tracking Power Take-Off, so that credits can be obtained quickly for fuel used at the worksite, as opposed to on-highway. All states, and Washington D.C, allow substantial tax rebates for PTO operation if properly documented.
Versalift will provide single-source responsibility for the ST-900, and both companies will assist with worker training, which typically requires just a few hours.
