The reality is that most companies have trouble tracking more than two or three performance indicators if they don’t have a customized reporting system focusing on business-specific KPIs. The TotalTrax SX/VX advanced telematics platform provides the most comprehensive visibility of your material-handling operations at the individual unit, operator, shift, site, and enterprise management levels. Most importantly, you can customize reports, choose the fields appearing in the report, and share with other managers across the SX200 system.

Saving time significantly reduces costs.

About 65 percent of companies use big data analytics from an older system to monitor their fleet, equipment, and assets. But this typically leaves them scrambling for solid answers hidden in the data.
