The Cat® App: A Mobile Partner in Equipment Maintenance

Equipment management has been made easy with the My.cat.com service. Through this, Caterpillar has provided a system that allows you to access all your equipment data in one place. This web portal allows you to: Schedule preventive maintenance, check a machine’s parts or service history, manage open work orders, review results from fluid analysis, verify warranty or Equipment Protection Plan coverage, extend a maintenance contract, manage your rental equipment, act on Safety Service Letter notifications, monitor location, hours, events and fuel on units subscribed to Cat Daily or VisionLink® and Access/review Operation & Maintenance. However, this service requires you to use a browser to access all these information. Today’s on demand culture has led to a people who want access at their fingertips. To remedy this, Caterpillar brings you the Cat® App. But what makes this different from My.Cat.Com?
