Kubota and HBS Systems agreed to a telematics integration to benefit the manufacturer’s dealers

Kubota and HBS Systems, which provides web-based equipment dealership management solutions and rental software, agreed to an advanced telematics integration.

The partnership will strengthen the support NetView ECO, HBS’ equipment management software, provides to Kubota’s North American dealers.

According to HBS, here are some benefits Kubota dealers can expect from the integration:

Track unit location for dealer and customer-owned fleets

Geo-fence job sites to receive notifications, minimize theft and watch for potential misuse

Monitor unit meters and usage time for preventative maintenance, cost savings and rental contract accuracy

Increase service efficiency and customer satisfaction by receiving fault codes that expedite work orders within NetView ECO

Manage from one customizable screen through NetView ECO’s Service Connect, accessible from anywhere on any device

“We’re connecting dealers with customers and their machines with new technology to improve dealership productivity and reduce machine downtime on the job-site or in the field which helps increase customer satisfaction,” said Chad Stone, President and CEO of HBS Systems, which is based in Richardson, Tex., and has worked with equipment dealers, manufacturers and distributors around the world since 1985.

“Our development team is consistently providing first-to-market technology and benefits not found in the industry,” Stone said. “The telematics integration with Kubota allows dealers to monitor machine health as well as receive alerts about any machine issues or potential problems. Dealers can proactively order parts or send a service technician right to the customer’s location and more.”
