CASE Construction Equipment launches the next generation of its SiteWatch telematics platform with an
all-new dashboard, more intuitive navigation and new overview sections that spotlight critical information
without requiring the user to search extensively for the data.
CASE SiteWatch comes standard with all CASE heavy equipment featuring a 3-year Advanced
subscription and 3 year / 5,000 hrs full-machine factory warranty and planned maintenance as a part of
the ProCover machine support program.
SiteWatch complies with the Association of Equipment Management Professionals (AEMP) 2.0
telematics standard, ensuring that the solution is compatible with mixed fleets.
“Telematics data from construction equipment only helps if it’s easy to engage with and easy to
understand when it’s presented to you,” says James Pike, ANZ Product Manager, CE. “The new CASE
SiteWatch telematics platform presents users with a high level of critical data on a very clear and intuitive
dashboard, and then puts all critical machine and performance data within just a click or two, whether
you’re at your desk or on your tablet in the field.”
The new dashboard features an easy-to-read horizontal menu at the top of the screen above five widgets
that focus on core operating information such as an equipment summary, equipment search, fuel level
reports and alarm status. An easy dropdown menu makes critical reports on factors such as equipment
utilization, fuel consumption and maintenance just a click away, and topline menu buttons take users
immediately to fleet and maintenance overviews. Additional reports highlighting specific alerts and fault
codes are also available.
For a smooth transition, CASE has made it possible for a short period to switch from the new SiteWatch
version to the previous one with a dedicated icon in the top right corner. The switch is meant to simplify
the adoption of the new interface and to reassure regular users.
SiteWatch telematics help fleets of all sizes work more efficiently in many ways, including:
- Simplified fleet management: Always know where each machine is, what its working status is
and if maintenance or service is required.
- Understanding equipment utilisation: Your foreman on one job tells you that he needs to rent
an excavator, but maybe you have an excavator on another job that’s not being used? Knowing
when and how equipment is being used can improve profitability/total cost of ownership for the
equipment you already own, and help you make smarter equipment buying/renting decisions.
- Analysing workload and productivity: Telematics gives fleet managers and business owners
excellent perspective into how equipment is operating, and whether they are getting the most
out of their equipment and crew on each project.
- Real-time alerts/alarms: Time for an oil change? Engine temps running outside of the preferred
operating range? Did a machine move outside of a geofence on a Sunday? Fleet managers and
business owners receive alerts in real time to make them aware of machine conditions that
- Partner with dealer on preventive maintenance: As the equipment owner, we believe that you
own your data — you can, however, grant your local CASE dealer access to your telematics
data to more proactively partner with you on preventive maintenance and other service items,
such as planned maintenance scheduling, or monitoring machine parameters and identifying
issues that may need addressing.
- Improved billing and estimating: SiteWatch provides users with an accurate historical view
into the amount of time/hours each machine is used on each job, which can proactively help you
bid and estimate jobs more accurately, and retroactively assist in billing.
- Improve record keeping and analysis: Whether it replaces the old service whiteboard in the
shop or simply gives you new perspective into how your equipment is used every day, the
reporting menu in SiteWatch presents users with data in a way that is intuitive and brings
actionable data to the forefront for more intelligent business decision making and management.
- Locate equipment: Not sure which crew has a dozer, or which jobsite the wheel loader is on?
SiteWatch will tell you.
- Prevent unauthorised use: The unauthorized use of construction equipment opens its owners
up to liability, not to mention the added wear and tear that unauthorised use puts on a machine.
Whether geofenced with alerts, or simply identified through retrospective reporting, SiteWatch
identifies and alerts equipment owners to the unauthorised use of valuable assets.
• Equipment security: Telematics helps locate stolen equipment — which, if recovered and
returned by the authorities, is much less expensive than the resulting downtime and replacement
These are just a few ways that the new SiteWatch telematics platform from CASE helps improve your
equipment operations. Contact your local CASE dealer for more details, or visit CaseCE.com/SiteWatch
