Cat® Connect: Equipment Management Services
It’s important to have the right mix of equipment for your construction business. Cat equipment gives you the performance, reliability and versatility you need to get the job done. To maximize your efficiency and productivity and get the most out of your fleet, Caterpillar offers you Equipment Management Services.
This powerful management technology collects real-time data from your Cat equipment and allows you to analyze and track a broad range of parameters. EMS consists of three unique services that combine to give you full control of how you run your fleet: Inform, Advise and Support. Each level gives you insight into where your equipment is, how it’s being used and how you can optimize it for improved productivity and reliability.

Each level of EMS combines advanced technology with experience-based logic to track, optimize and improve the performance of your Cat equipment:
This first level represents the real-time data and machine information that is collected by Cat onboard software and technology. Various system parameters are continuously tracked and relayed to the Cat Connect services so you can:
Track the physical location and speed of your equipment
Set avoidance zones for added work zone safety
Schedule equipment and personnel for optimized utilization
The data you receive through EMS Inform keeps you informed of how your equipment is being used and allows you to make changes that improve your efficiency and productivity. You will get the most from your equipment investment and avoid scheduling and work zone conflicts that leave your equipment sitting idle.
The data created by your equipment and collected by Cat Connect is also used by our team here at Carolina Cat to advise you on how to optimize your equipment use, efficiency and maintenance. With EMS Advise, we analyze your equipment data and use our experience to propose real solutions for improved equipment management:
Understand the health of your equipment in terms of performance and efficiency
Reduce emissions with timely maintenance and decreased fuel consumption
Identify problems before they arise through fluid analysis and equipment inspection
In the past, we tracked this type of data when we serviced and maintained your construction equipment. Thanks to the modern technology included in Cat Connect-equipped equipment, we can continuously collect and analyze your data and give you our expert advice on how to optimize the way you run your equipment.
Cat Connect’s EMS includes a Support level that helps you reduce costs and improve your bottom line through better management of your preventive maintenance and equipment repair. We take the data we collect from your equipment and give you feedback for:
Improved emissions monitoring and compliance reporting
Optimized fleet usage [new – Equipment management page] and lifecycle planning through preventive maintenance
Recommendations on equipment maintenance and repair for improved reliability
