Location Services

Description

Location Services is an additional component, optional to the Forklift Monitoring System. Location service is designed to deliver critical insights that can be used to enhance the ability to achieve and improve the safety, operator productivity, Material Handling Equipment (MHE) utilization and maintenance objectives. It can benefit safety, fleet, and warehouse managers to collect and process information about their vehicles. It can also help them to identify trends, devise travel routes, observe the pallet movement, and set standards for vehicle speeds, paths, and other measurements.

Our Location Services device provides increased accuracy and higher speeds with lower maintenance requirements and lower costs, compared to alternate or competitive solutions.
