Ahern Companies has selected Trackunit as its telematics platform partner.
The Ahern portfolio includes Ahern Rentals, and MEWP OEMs Xtreme and Snorkel.
“We conducted an expansive search of more than 14 telematics providers, including a multimonth pilot scheme," said Don Ahern, Ahern Companies CEO. "At the conclusion of the study, our telematics committee selected Trackunit as our telematics partner. Our requirements are expansive since we encompass rental, manufacturing, and distribution, and we resolved that Trackunit was the best-suited to the needs of our customers.
"With the integration points to our existing ERP software suites, we expect to be able to recognize the full value of the Trackunit platform across the family of companies,” Ahern said.
Trackunit will be deployed across the Ahern Rentals fleet within the next three years, and new Xtreme and Snorkel lifts will be assembled with a Trackunit compatible connection for customers who wish to install the telematics.
This will become available in late 2020, and rolled out across the global manufacturing footprint by model type with OEM-branded dashboards. The Trackunit telematics solution will also be available on products sold through the Ahern Companies distribution channels, including Diamond A Equipment and Ahern International.
