The new partnership began on April 1 2024 and will introduce telematics services for HCME equipment.

HCME equipment will now come equipped with factory-integrated telematics that will transmit operational data at intervals ranging from every 24 hours to as frequently as every 10 minutes for machines weighing three tons and above.

The platform delivers data in real-time, which is said to help users to better manage their equipment by providing accurate insights and eliminates inaccuracies that are often associated with recalculated information. 

The partnership is customising ShareMat systems to meet specific user requirements and integrating Hitachi equipment into the ShareMat platform through direct API services.

In addition to this, ShareMat will also provide technical support whilst HCME will offer auxiliary assistance in resolving technical queries.

The collaboration is said to emphasise the neutrality of the ShareMat brand and spotlights the contractual relationship between HCME and ShareMat in France.
