Project Case Study: Heavy Equipment Services, Inc.
Greg Peet, CEM, President of Heavy Equipment Services, Inc. (HESI; the equipment arm of parent company The Helm Group), had already begun equipping mobile construction assets with telematics devices during the days of 2G. However, when 3G appeared on the scene, Peet wanted to manage his assets to comply with the Association of Equipment Management Professionals (AEMP) telematics standard. (Peet served on the AEMP board at the time.) Peet oversees 228 pieces of owned construction equipment, old and new, ranging from cranes and excavators to skid steers and rock crushing equipment to produce aggregate. The firm also owns 450 light vehicles. “We have about as diverse a fleet of construction equipment as you’d find anywhere,” said Peet. During his search, Peet found the Temeda solution, which accepts data feeds from virtually all OEMs and multiple asset classes to provide cross-fleet insight in a single dashboard.
