Genie debuts rental-focused tech add-on

By Lindsey Anderson04 March 2021

Genie has debuted a new rental-focused option for its Lift Connect telematics system. The Access Manager add-on will allow rental companies to remotely manage and access their fleets.

“When a unit is equipped with Access Manager, an operator must enter a code before they can start that unit, ensuring that only authorized operators can operate the machine. Not only does this provide greater security for equipment, it also can help ensure only trained operators have codes,” saidChristine Zeznick, Genie director of product and business development, telematics, Terex AWP.

Access Manager works by assigning a unique code — which can be randomly generated or personally selected, much like an ATM pin code — to an individual operator through the Lift Connect portal. That operator then can be assigned to specific equipment. The unit then can be started only when an operator enters an authorized code on the Access Manager keypad, or when they use an authorized Access Manager RFID card, which can be purchased separately. Because Access Manager is designed for jobsite use, the keypad has been intentionally designed with durable, highly tactile buttons that are easily pushed even if the user is wearing work gloves.

Any equipped with Lift Connect can be retrofitted to include Access Manager, allowing rental companies to expand the benefits of their Lift Connect system, Genie said. 

Concurrent with the launch of Access Manager, any machine that currently has an active Lift Connect subscription and a CAN control system will have the ability to use the new Remote Disable functionality. Remote disable, which is separate from Access Manager, will allow the equipment owner to remotely disable or enable operation of their equipment through the Lift Connect portal, providing equipment owners additional opportunities to remotely manage and secure their fleets.

Access Manager will be available beginning late Q1 2021 in countries where Lift Connect is currently approved.
