Kärcher is defining a new level of efficiency and professionalism in the management, maintenance and control of fleets.
For the task of the professional cleaning of offices, hospitals and factory buildings, Kärcher offers sweepers, driers and much more. These devices can be administered by the customer using an extensive fleet management service known as “Kärcher Fleet”. Kärcher Fleet provides building service contractors as well as other customers with the relevant information for a seamless overview of all machinery, its present deployment and status.
To realise its fleet management solution, Kärcher uses a range of Vodafone IoT services. Global Vodafone SIM cards that are permanently installed in Kärcher machines transmit all relevant information such as condition, type of operation, maintenance state or the logged-in user to the Vodafone Remote Monitoring and Control (RMCS) platform. This in turn prepares the data for display on customer dashboards. SIM card management, cost control and data access are performed via the Vodafone Managed IoT Connectivity Platform. Not least, this ensures that Kärcher fleet management can be offered and used in many countries.
Gartner has positioned Vodafone as a "Leader" in its Magic Quadrant for Managed M2M Services, Worldwide report 2017, for the fourth consecutive year
