Getting the Facts

“He came to Teletrack after having suspicions that the machine hour meter readings were not a true representation of worker productivity.”

A hospital project manager in New Zealand sought the help of Teletrack in order to get the full picture of how his access equipment was being utilised while elevated. He came to Teletrack after having suspicions that the machine hour meter readings were not a true representation of worker productivity.

Teletrack set up an auxiliary input with a height switch on our device for counting operator usage hour while elevated, even if the engine wasn’t running.

This allowed insight into actual worker productivity with two measures of utilisation:

  • A traditional hour meter reading machine.
  • An operator utilisation/productivity measurement reporting system.


The project manager went on to tell our customer that he would get the hire business exclusively if he could implement this reporting system himself.
