Measure, monitor and manage with VisionLink® Productivity.

Every job site engages in production. However, productivity remains a challenge for many construction businesses. Low productivity means low revenue which directly impacts profitability.

So, to help businesses measure, monitor, and manage assets to maximise jobsite efficiency, Caterpillar has developed VisionLink® Productivity.

VisionLink Productivity is an easy-to-use, cloud-based platform that gathers, analyses, and summarises machine telematics and jobsite data from equipment on- and off-site. As its name suggests, VisionLink Productivity helps improve productivity, regardless of equipment brand, but there’s more to this technology than that.

Better insights, better decisions

For site managers, owners, and operators, it’s important to understand how assets are being utilised and how operations are flowing.

VisionLink Productivity delivers a deeper level of actionable insights. These allow users to manage changes and make improvements across the jobsite, such as:

• Improving site productivity
• Lowering cost per tonne
• Improving fleet utilisation
• Lowering fleet costs
• Decreasing idle time, and
• Reducing fuel burn.

For many businesses, VisionLink Productivity is a welcome relief. It means they no longer need to manually compile data – a time- consuming process that’s far from airtight – and far from enjoyable.

Resource visibility

DI.MA Ltd. is an Italian company that recovers waste materials and turns them into construction products.

“We produce industry-certified aggregates for use in construction. Particularly for concrete batching plants, asphalt plants, construction sites, road works and large logistics,” explained DI.MA Chairman Paolo Ottonelli.

Working in a very competitive market, it’s incredibly important DI.MA has clear visibility of the costs attached to each tonne of product it sells. That’s why DI.MA became an early adopter three years ago.

VisionLink® Productivity helps DI.MA know where loading, dumping and machine idle events occur.

Using VisionLink Productivity, DI.MA can track material movement between processing, plant, and stockpiles. It can then track when and where the material is loaded onto trucks and taken to customers. Using the cost dashboard, DI.MA can also track how much it costs to do all this. It allows the team to make the changes required to help drive down their cost per tonne.

“The use of VisionLink Productivity allows us to assess where we have leakages or inefficiencies and therefore improve our production cycle,” said DI.MA Technical Director, Gian Luca Gamba. “We can then make decisions based on scientific data.”

Simplifying complexity

The VisionLink Productivity interface is easy to use despite the complex activity going on behind the screen. Businesses can now understand volumes of data at just a glance.

As Commercial Caterpillar Consultant, Michael Miller explained: “This simple intuitive online tool visually represents all the data, everything that’s happening on your jobsite. You can set up simple reports to have all that information delivered straight to your inbox.”
