Cummins and Trackunit Team Up to Minimize Downtime

Feb. 14, 2023 –Cummins and internet of things (IoT) solutions provider Trackunit plan to work together to minimize downtime for construction customers.

Cummins’ engine expertise and Trackunit’s ability to deliver actionable insights will help owners and users make timely decisions about machine operation and servicing.

This collaboration will provide access to valuable descriptive and diagnostic engine data that equips operators, fleet managers, and service teams to increase the efficiency of individual machines, whole fleets, and construction projects.

Cummins’ Connected Diagnostics has developed a wealth of knowledge. It considers active machine parameters and fleet-wide historical data to generate advanced insights about engine faults.

“We’re excited to be expanding the Trackunit ecosystem with Cummins as the newest addition to our integration and partnership network,” said Soeren Brogaard, CEO of Trackunit. “Together, we are uniquely positioned to help customers unlock the value of machine data, providing timely insights and foresight, decision-making and increased efficiencies, delivering a standardized and stronger customer experience.”

The joint effort will let engine data flow to stakeholders and will provide critical information such as recommendations, performance impacts, and probable root causes. It should empower customers and service teams to optimize planning and improve the health of machines, minimizing breakdowns and downtime.

“The Cummins strategy is to connect our customers with advanced engine data. With this collaboration with Trackunit we can bring diagnostics insights to a broad range of Cummins customers in many applications,” said Brittany Calas, director of digital solution delivery at Cummins. “We look forward to connecting the construction industry with business-critical data from Cummins to improve asset uptime and utilization.

This work can be especially valuable in rental equipment.

“This collaboration is another example of Cummins working to serve our customers,” said John Gibbons, rental market director for North America. “This will be especially beneficial to fleets that need to monitor equipment remotely, like those in the rental markets. We look forward to seeing the positive impact as we continue to help customers thrive.”

“The integration will deliver a standardized and improved customer experience providing access to mission-critical data in Trackunit Manager via an integration with the Cummins Cloud and implementation using the Trackunit Iris App functionality,” added Brogaard. “By partnering with Cummins, we now have a unique opportunity to accelerate the journey towards the digital transformation in construction.”
