Goscor launches forklift fleet management solution

27 February 2018

Materials Handling Equipment (MHE) solutions provider, Goscor Lift Truck Company, has launched Crown’s InfoLink in South Africa. InfoLink is a wireless operator and fleet management solution that puts the power of accurate, up-to-date business metrics at management’s fingertips.

In essence, InfoLink helps customers monitor and manage the efficient use of their forklift fleet and total operations by delivering actionable data through content-rich, interactive dashboards that help fleet managers focus on real opportunities and avoid wasted time deciphering mounds of data.

In 2013 InfoLink received the International Forklift of the Year Award in the “Forklift Truck Solutions” category for revolutionizing materials handling technology for well-known UK office supplies wholesaler Spicers by reducing maintenance and repair costs by 90%.

Another overseas example comes from Spanish express logistics provider, Palibex, whose systems director Guillermo Cagigas says: “InfoLink has helped us to optimize our entire MHE fleet and streamline our operations by giving us a clear, daily overview of the time each lift truck is in use, the number of metres covered, how long each battery lasts, as well as impacts, so we can ensure both trucks and merchandise are treated with utmost respect.”

Darryl Shafto, Goscor Lift Truck MD says that InfoLink enables greater efficiency of the fleet giving a complete overview of equipment usage. “Also, because of the inclusion of safety-related impact monitoring, the operators drive more carefully resulting in significantly less damage.

Apart from impact monitoring and history, InfoLink, provides management fleet-wide visibility into an array of other operator and fleet information through its user-friendly interface such as battery usage, truck utilization, service needs and more.
