Austin, Texas – March 4, 2016 – HOLT® CAT, the authorized Caterpillar® heavy equipment and engine dealer for 118 counties in Texas, is now using the Smart Picture Measurement Cloud for in-field measuring and estimating of select retro-fit projects.
The buckets and blades on heavy construction equipment can sometimes be given a second life with proper rebuilding, increasing the operator’s overall fleet efficiency. With the Smart Picture technology, a HOLT CAT field representative need only take a smartphone photo of the part at the job site. Once uploaded to the Smart Picture Measurement Cloud, a technician has all the necessary measurement data to not only provide a quote but to actually remanufacture the part as well.
“We are excited to leverage the Smart Picture software to improve our turnaround time on repair and rebuild projects for customers,” said Peter J. Holt, the General Manager of HOLT CAT. “That’s a huge difference in our industry, one that adds to the bottom lines of all involved.”
“HOLT CAT’s use of our technology beautifully captures its essence,” said Andy Greff, CEO of Smart Picture Technologies. “Enabling companies to gather their necessary field measurements with less effort, in less time and close more deals faster is what we’re all about.”
