Hiab Now Offers Free Version of HiConnect


May 26, 2020 - Hiab, part of Cargotec, now offers a free version of its HiConnect connected service.

The full subscription version is now rebranded as HiConnect Premium.

The HiConnect web portal lets Hiab customers with connected equipment receive insights to improve safety and usage while also keeping track of service needs based on actual use.

The information is available in real time, and the portal can be accessed on PCs, smartphones, and tablets.

The free version of HiConnect provides access to core features, such as a live map of the fleet, upcoming maintenance dates based on actual use, equipment operation times, and used capacity.

A subscription to HiConnect Premium provides access to more extensive data details, such as fleet trends and operational insights. The more-detailed data gives the customer better control and visibility of their operations.

“No matter the size or sector, we want to empower our customers to be more productive, reduce unnecessary downtime, and improve safety,” said Jan-Erik Lindfors, vice president of new business solutions at Hiab. “The free version of HiConnect is a great way to provide data driven insights and benefits to all our customers,”

HiConnect is available for all connected Hiab loader cranes, Multilift hooklifts, Moffett truck-mounted forklifts, and Waltco tail lifts.

Starting in the second half of 2019, Hiab has delivered connectivity as a standard feature on the majority of new equipment. Also, some models can be retrofitted for connectivity.

Owners interested in starting with HiConnect can request access on Hiab’s webpages by registering their equipment or by contacting their local sales representative to find out more.
