Buhler Industries subsidiary Versatile has deployed Elevāt’s Machine Connect platform across its entire line of four-wheel drive tractors for Model Year 2022.The Canadian four-wheel drive tractor manufacturer has implemented Elevāt’s IoT telematics software, sensors and gateways into its complete product line-up.
Versatile is Canada’s only manufacturer of agricultural tractors. It manufactures its product line in a factory in Winnipeg, Manitoba, which covers almost 700,000 square feet, and provides complete manufacturing, assembly and full research and development facilities.
To meet Versatile’s requirements, Elevāt customised its IoT application platform for the particular demands of the agricultural machinery manufacturer and its customers. These included the need to support remote diagnostics, predictive maintenance and deliver capabilities such as over-the-air (OTA) updates, geofencing and geotracking, and proactive telematics reports.
“We manufacture all our tractors in our factory in Winnipeg, Manitoba. As the only Canadian agricultural tractor manufacturer, we pride ourselves on our leadership in manufacturing, assembly, and research and development,” said Erron Leafloor, Versatile.
“When we decided to integrate IoT telematics software, sensors, and gateways into our tractors, we wanted to ensure the solution we implemented provided a seamless experience for our entire dealer network and our customers. We chose to work with Elevāt because of their willingness and ability to tailor their solution and the portal to our unique requirements. We have just begun to deploy the CBX system by Elevāt in our tractors; our dealers and end users are already excited about the benefits,” said Leafloor.
“The team at Versatile came to Elevāt looking for a solution that would support remote diagnostics, predictive maintenance and deliver capabilities like over-the-air (OTA) updates, geofencing and geotracking, and proactive telematics reports. Also, advanced features like virtual technician support and command and control supported Versatile’s dedication to advanced innovation. They also wanted a fully white-labelled portal experience that aligned with the Versatile brand and delivered a customer experience that supported Versatile’s long-held commitment to customer service,” said Adam Livesay, Co-Founder and Chief Revenue Officer, Elevāt.
