The Ahern fam­ily of com­pa­nies (Ahern Com­pa­nies) in­clud­ing Ahern Rentals, Xtreme Man­u­fac­tur­ing, Snorkel, Di­a­mond A Equip­ment, and Ahern In­ter­na­tional has se­lected Trackunit as its telem­at­ics plat­form part­ner.

Ahern Com­pa­nies signed the agree­ment with Trackunit in early May 2020, and is com­menc­ing roll-out in the rental fleet with im­me­di­ate ef­fect. Trackunit will be de­ployed across the Ahern Rentals fleet within the next three years, and new Xtreme and Snorkel lifts will be as­sem­bled with a Trackunit com­pat­i­ble con­nec­tion for cus­tomers who wish to in­stall the telem­at­ics. This will be­come avail­able in late 2020, and rolled out across the global man­u­fac­tur­ing foot­print by model type with OEM branded dash­boards. The Trackunit telem­at­ics so­lu­tion will also be avail­able on prod­ucts sold through the Ahern Com­pa­nies dis­tri­bu­tion chan­nels, in­clud­ing Di­a­mond A Equip­ment and Ahern In­ter­na­tional.

Don Ahern, CEO, Ahern Com­pa­nies, said: “We con­ducted an ex­pan­sive search of more than 14 telem­at­ics providers, in­clud­ing a multi-month pi­lot scheme. At the con­clu­sion of the study, our telem­at­ics com­mit­tee se­lected Trackunit as our telem­at­ics part­ner. Our re­quire­ments are ex­pan­sive since we en­com­pass rental, man­u­fac­tur­ing and dis­tri­bu­tion, and we re­solved that Trackunit was the best-suited to the needs of our cus­tomers. With the in­te­gra­tion points to our ex­ist­ing ERP soft­ware suites, we ex­pect to be able to rec­og­nize the full value of the Trackunit plat­form across the fam­ily of com­pa­nies.”

Mike Stil­wag­ner, CIO, Ahern Com­pa­nies added: “It was im­per­a­tive that our cho­sen telem­at­ics so­lu­tion is a well-ac­cepted and proven so­lu­tion for our cus­tomer base, and also sat­is­fied the needs of our in­ter­nal stake­hold­ers. Trackunit is a global prod­uct, mean­ing that our cus­tomers can have con­sis­tency of data, no mat­ter where their equip­ment is man­u­fac­tured or lo­cated. A ben­e­fit of eval­u­at­ing the avail­able telem­at­ics so­lu­tions from a tri­lat­eral rental, man­u­fac­tur­ing and dis­tri­bu­tion per­spec­tive is that we are con­fi­dent in Trackunit’s abil­ity to meet the needs of our cus­tomers, and all of our stake­hold­ers.”

Jeff Co­hen, pres­i­dent, Trackunit, said: “We are ex­tremely ex­cited to be­gin this part­ner­ship with Ahern Com­pa­nies at a time of trans­for­ma­tion within our in­dus­try, as the fo­cus shifts from gath­er­ing to utiliz­ing data. Ahern Com­pa­nies’ de­ci­sion to roll-out the telem­at­ics so­lu­tion across their busi­ness dur­ing this time is tes­ta­ment to their com­mit­ment to us­ing data for the long-term ben­e­fit of their busi­nesses, their cus­tomers, and the in­dus­try.”
