Pettibone upgrades product line with GlobalTracs

All material handling machines coming off Pettibone’s production line will now come standard with Qualcomm’s GlobalTracs GPS-based equipment management system. The system collects and then transmits machine information to a datacenter both dealers and customers can access via the Internet. It will allow Pettibone dealers to easily locate machines in the field, track machine hours and utilization rates, monitor unauthorized use and record maintenance history. The system also provides a virtual fence for enhanced security.
