New Product Link Capabilities Include Mobile Application and Productivity Functionality


Caterpillar recently announced the availability of a new version of VisionLink: version 2.7. VisionLink is the Trimble-powered software that interfaces with Product Link, the performance and maintenance monitoring system installed on many Cat machines. Updates to VisionLink in version 2.7 include a multi-platform mobile user interface, a payload-tracking system for wheel loaders and off-highway trucks, and the ability to schedule automated delivery of VisionLink reports.

The new Vision Link mobile application is available for the iOS, BlackBerry, Android, and Windows mobile operating systems. It allows users to view the location of Product Link-equipped assets on a map, track scheduled services for their equipment, view fault codes and open alerts, and access idle, working and runtime… All through their smartphone!

Vision Link 2.7 also includes a payloadmonitoring system for wheel loaders and off-highway trucks equipped with payload-management systems capable of interacting with Vision Link. Managers of these machines can now use Vision Link to remotely monitor information such as total payload moved per day and total payload per hour and per unit of fuel. This new integration adds to VisionLink’s current productivity capabilities, which include the ability to track load counts and cycle times based on switch and machine movement input, as well as advanced integration with onboard grade control systems to enable detailed monitoring of earthmoving, grading and finishing projects.

Finally, version 2.7 of VisionLink now provides users the ability to schedule delivery of daily, weekly and monthly reports in advance. These reports are delivered via email to email addresses prespecified by the fleet management.
