System Description

The PowerFleet® ESSENCE fleet management system has just two system components: the OC53 forklift truck hardware and the management App. Once you have installed the hardware and downloaded the app, you will have full capacity for your digital fleet management system with immediate effect. No IT connection required. The RFID-based system works in a virtually out-of-the-box way. Only authorised drivers can use the forklift truck assigned to them; they must also identify themselves using their transponder or PIN code. Prior to driving off, drivers are also obliged to respond to an electronic safety checklist, documenting how safe the vehicle is. If they have answered all of the safety questions affirmatively, they can then drive off. While a job is ongoing, the forklift truck hardware will continuously register all of the vehicle and safety-related movement data. Impacts or accidents are also recorded via the integrated impact damage sensor. The strengths of ESSENCE include

  • enhancing the safety of forklift trucks, drivers and the entire working environment,
  • making repair costs and the procurement of spare parts more predictable, and
  • making it easier to plan maintenance intervals.

Low investment costs involved. Simplicity. Flexibility.

Data are automatically compared and communicated between the app and the forklift truck hardware within a range of 30 m, as well as using smart technology via Bluetooth. All data relating to the forklift truck usage are sent in bundled analysed format directly to your iPhone or iPad. So you can manage your entire fleet virtually at the touch of a button.
