Trackunit Service Helps Boost Productivity in the Construction Industry

Trackunit  A/S from Denmark has announced the introduction of its Trackunit Go, mobile application for real-time monitoring and optimization of construction equipment use. 


-According to McKinsey, construction is one of the least digitized industries globally, says Joergen Raguse, CEO Trackunit A/S.

-The market struggles with low margins and low productivity. Large construction project timelines are typically delayed by 20 percent, and up to 80 percent of projects are over budget. What’s surprising is there has been no significant improvements in over a decade. The construction industry is ripe for the kind of digital disruption which Trackunit is bringing to market.

Accelerating construction into the digital age

The launch of new mobile-first technologies and services such as Trackunit Go are game changers for the construction industry, setting new standards for digital services.

In practical use, real-time data, e.g., empowers technicians to become a proactive service department rather than a reactive repair team – by encouraging preventive maintenance based upon machine health monitoring via mobile devices, construction companies are better able to mitigate the costs and productivity losses incurred by unplanned downtime.

From hindsight to data-driven foresight

-Telematics is not science fiction, says Joergen Raguse.

-It’s an embedded and well-established technology platform which has come of age in Trackunit’s hands. The step forward in digitization which Trackunit brings is the way we collect and analyze telematics data in real-time to deliver actionable, proactive and predictive information. Our technology consigns old-fashioned, historical reporting to the waste basket.

At every moment, valuable data is produced by machines. Traditionally telematics has used this data to provide backward-looking reports about information and events such as machine up-time, fuel consumption and localization. By collecting real-time data Trackunit enables companies to extract information and turn it into business improving foresights for smarter and faster decisions.

Ensuring a Smooth Transition from OPC CLASSIC to OPC UA

Now, more than ever, industrial firms need to make sense of vast quantities of data having a critical impact on their performance. To support the variety of applications necessary today, information must be delivered with context so it can be understood and used in various ways by a variety of people. Growing adoption of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industrie 4.0 is also driving requirements for open and secure connectivity between devices and edge-to-cloud solutions.

Is Your HMI/SCADA Network as Secure as You Think It Is?

Network security frequently makes the news, often when some new viral attack is discovered or, worse yet, is successful. HMI/SCADA networks can be as susceptible to these unlawful break-ins as any others, unless the proper precautions are taken. Many software and hardware vendors have made their own attempts to stay ahead of online criminals, while others have combined forces to thwart such attacks.
