Ditch Witch fleet management system helps centralize critical data for contractors
Tool provides critical insights to increase business efficiency, effectiveness and profitability
Ditch Witch has launched the Orange Intel Fleet Management System to centralize fleet and machine information, maintenance indicators and other data to enable contractors to more effectively and efficiently run their business.
The intuitive system delivers vital data and insights into Ditch Witch equipment, keeping contractors up to date on machine performance, location and security. To maximize jobsite profitability and machine effectiveness, the system keeps a detailed history of machine intelligence and overall fleet performance, so contractors can better plan for future workloads and estimate hours for new jobs.
Through comprehensive reporting capabilities, operators have the power to track individual machine indicators, including working and idle hours, which enables them to schedule routine maintenance. The technical data provided in each machine can illuminate potential problems before they occur, such as keeping an eye on fuel and DEF levels, battery performance and other vital systems.
Contractors can also utilize the system to keep their equipment safe and protected. With the ability to insert GPS-based, geofencing options, contractors can digitally construct a "fence" around their shop yards or jobsites to track equipment movement and locate a lost or stolen machine. The notifications are then sent directly to contractors' desktops or mobile devices to keep them updated on fleet and crew status during all hours and in various locations.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
