Customer Success Story

With Rental Company Accès Industrie

Guaranteed Access Security for All Machines

In 2016, after the first assessment of out-of-contract utilization, Accès Industrie noted that it was losing €100,000 a year. Immediately, it began the massive digitization of its fleet. The Technical Department’s target was first and foremost to create an overview of value-adding equipment, followed by connecting the entire fleet.

 

Challenge

In 2018, Accès Industrie’s telematics provider closed its construction branch. To ensure the overview of its fleet Accès Industrie needed to take quick action to find a new provider. At this point, security challenges were becoming the number one priority following an increase in customer demand to digitize access control. Determined to continue on the digital journey, it turned its focus towards Trackunit.

Accès Industrie had a clear goal. For Trackunit to successfully implement the necessary changes, the new solution needed to:

  • Align with the processes already set up with the previous telematics system.
  • Offer a simplified but documented installation of the telematics.
  • Create single-use security codes to guarantee the traceability of machine utilization and ensure safety.
  • Connect all equipment, including electric machines.

“When you are a company like Accès Industrie, with more than 6,000 machines, you need a stable partner like Trackunit.”

Lionel Buzet, General and Technical Director

Solution

Trackunit’s units were installed on a large proportion of the fleet to support Accès Industrie’s goals. More than 2,300 machines are connected by Trackunit and equipped with security codes that are administrated remotely. Soon, Accès Industrie will replace 700 old units with the Trackunit solution.

Outcome

As a result of the global pandemic, Accès Industrie has experienced a growth in the out-of-contract usage of machines in response to the pressure of deadlines on construction sites. But with Trackunit’s solution; equipment is monitored, fleet management is optimized, and remote parameters are a part of the diagnostic process.
