Does your business run on a range of material handling equipment? Then a fleet management solution is a must-have to optimise efficiency and safety. 

Linde FleetFOCUS is an easy-to-use fleet management system that puts you in total control of all your trucks and forklifts, so you can increase safety, productivity and, ultimately, your bottom line. 

What is Fleet Management?

The explanation of fleet management is as simple as it sounds – managing your businesses fleet of forklifts, but in practice it’s not as simple as just assigning a truck to a driver or completing a vehicle walkaround. Fleet management is about getting the right information to get the best out of your equipment. It’s tracking your vehicles, monitoring mechanical diagnostics and user behaviour to improve efficiency, minimising vehicle downtime, and ensuring optimum safety as well as compliance with government regulations. 

And Linde’s FleetFOCUS solution is the simple way to tackle this complex problem. 

FleetFOCUS Management Solution | Forklift Safety | Linde Material Handling

The Linde FleetFOCUS difference

Since 2007, hundreds of satisfied customers from across Australia and New Zealand have been using Linde FleetFOCUS for their fleet management needs. The solution is easy to use, it helps you quickly identify operational issues and opportunities to increase efficiencies with your fleet of trucks. 

Offering full oversight of your forklifts, FleetFOCUS lets you monitor and analyse everything your vehicles and drivers are doing, so you can ensure a productive and safe workplace.

But what makes FleetFOCUS stand out from the rest is the WIFI and GPRS (3G/4G) Connectivity and its ability to be used in cold storage facilities. 

You can read more about these uniquely FleetFOCUS features below. 

What does FleetFOCUS deliver?

FleetFOCUS is all about versatility and gives you the data you need, when you need it most. You can access Workplace Health & Safety (WHS) compliance, cost and workplace efficiency in real time using your PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone. So, no matter where you are or what time it is, you can identify and fix issues quickly. 

With a suite of 30 real-time status reports, you can focus on what’s important to you and your business. From machine usage to service reports, always know important information including forklift service dates, drivers licence expiration, operator performance and impact reporting which will tell you the unit, time and date as well as driver involved in any impacts. And with remote vehicle management, you don’t even need to be at the workplace to unlock a vehicle, send a driver a message or add a new driver to a forklift. 

Its reprogrammable firmware is also futureproof, allowing you to adapt and customize the Linux-based software for your company and fleet’s specific needs. And it’s compatible with 99% of the security fobs and cards on the market, which means operators will have fewer cards to carry. 

The FleetFOCUS WIFI and GPRS (3G/4G) Connectivity is the only integration of its kind for fleet management in Australia. It allows the system to switch between WIFI and GPRS depending on the signal strength which gives you a seamless and steady connection so you won’t lose access to real-time information, even if the vehicle is outside of your WIFI network.  

Another unique feature is the ability to use the built-in function even in cold storage facilities, so you can better manager your fleet no matter how cool your material handling needs are. 

Linde FleetFOCUS Safety

When it comes to optimising safety, nothing compares to FleetFOCUS. From customising questions for a pre-op checklist, to 2-way messaging between supervisor and driver, you’ll see why FleetFOCUS is the leader in fleet management safety. 

Advanced diagnostics always ensure the safe operation and WHS compliance of all of the trucks in your fleet. When there’s an impact of a certain predetermined level, the vehicle’s speed will automatically decrease. And only authorised supervisors can restore the vehicle’s normal speed, after first completing a safety checklist. Likewise, you can set an option that if during the pre-op checklist a user doesn’t answer a critical question or doesn’t answer in a certain timeframe, the forklift’s speed will be decreased. Additionally, FleetFOCUS features an electronic tag-out for trucks that have been deemed unsafe. Once tagged out, only an authorised supervisor or Linde service technician can unlock the vehicle. And you’ll always know where your vehicles are, thanks to standard GPS included in all Linde trucks, allowing you to track any vehicle with details including model, serial number and the last time it checked in. 

Linde FleetFOCUS brings intelligence and ease to your fleet management.
