CDK Global Heavy Equipment and QUALCOMM have collaborated to integrate IntelliDealer and the QUALCOMM GlobalTRACS equipment management solution—resulting in improved unit coordination.
Dealers now have an effective way to protect and monitor some of their most important assets—their equipment. Through a newly-developed interface, CDK integrates its IntelliDealer Equipment and Service modules with QUALCOMM’s GlobalTRACS solution. The interface synchronizes equipment inventory data from IntelliDealer with data from a GlobalTRACS-equipped machine to provide a seamless transfer of critical and time-sensitive data.
Users can view the machine’s current location, as well as the history of the machine’s movements over a user-defined period of time. Through IntelliDealer, the location information will show the machine’s current location in terms of longitude, latitude, and proximity to the nearest city, town or landmark. This information will allow the dealer to discern whether or not the equipment has exceeded the boundaries set by the geo-fence, or if it travelled to a region where the charges to the customer may need to change. Additionally, information on current engine status is also available.
The machine-hour meter data integrates with IntelliDealer’s Service Agreements by providing the equipment inventory in IntelliDealer with updated hour meter readings, so service contracts that are based on machine hours can be managed easily within the IntelliDealer system. The updated machine hour data will work with the preventative maintenance program in order to promptly service the equipment. Machine hour data can be calculated into average daily usage as well, in order to determine when the machine is nearing a scheduled service.
