New Genie aerial platforms now "Lift Connect-ready"


The first new aerial platforms with Genie’s "Lift Connect" telematics program have arrived. At the moment the S-65 XC and GS-1330m are already equipped with the right hardware. A lot of hard work is now being done behind the scenes to prepare the Lift Connect software. We expect that we will be able to offer both hardware and software to our customers at the start of 2020.

The telematics program has been specially developed to meet the needs of rental companies, regardless of the size of their fleet. Life Connect distinguishes itself from other providers by the large amount of information that is available. For example, it is possible to remotely monitor how each machine performs, how often it is refueled or charged and the system indicates when the machine needs maintenance. It is even possible to request specific error codes via the software and thereby solve problems remotely.

HDW will provide the license to use Lift Connect for the first three years free of charge. Rental companies can use the Genie Portal software or integrate the data into their own system via an API. The telematics program can thus be used for any type of rental company.

For all Genie machines from 2015, an aftermarket kit will be available for the full use of Lift Connect with these aerial platforms.
