Komatsu adds digital platform

Customers can remotely send files from their office to target machines, easily search all connected assets, and log in to a machine and see what their operator is seeing.

Managers of large construction projects now have a powerful new technological tool in their arsenal to help them work more efficiently and economically with its new Smart Construction Remote application, which allows users to send new design data to machines in the field and remotely support operators without traveling to the job site.

They can log in to a machine and see what their operator is seeing and easily pinpoint the location of machines by job site. It allows construction site managers to  help operators troubleshoot issues in real time by viewing the same data as they do.

“In today’s ever-changing construction environment, Smart Construction Remote is an invaluable, must-have tool,” says Scott Christman, Earthwork division manager at Cornerstone One LLC. “It provides troubleshooting and file transfers with the touch of a button from anywhere with internet access, minimizing crew downtime and maximizing production.”

Smart Construction Remote’s software is compatible with select makes of machines with installed Topcon devices and all Komatsu intelligent Machine Control models. Komatsu-certified experts are ready to help users get the most from the application and develop team capabilities.

Smart Construction Remote is one of Komatsu’s new Smart Construction Solutions, an umbrella of smart applications created to help construction customers orchestrate construction planning, better handle management and scheduling, streamline costs, and optimize processes remotely in near real time.
