From drones and sensors to machine learning and robotics, technology is changing the future of Australian industry. Let our digital solutions improve efficiency, productivity and collaboration in your workplace.

IoT and Smart Site

Connectivity is key in today’s industries and Coates can help you seize the opportunities of the Internet of Things (IoT).

Our IoT-enabled telemetry system provides you with real-time visibility of the equipment you have on hire. By collecting data, such as equipment utilisation and fuel consumption, you can maximise the value of your rental equipment, drive productivity and reduce operating costs.

Meanwhile, our Smart Site uses low-power wide area networks (LPWAN) to capture data on the movement of people or equipment within a geofenced area to identify opportunities to improve tool time and work time productivity.

To stay up-to-date with our latest digital developments, follow us on LinkedIn or subscribe to our newsletter.

Coates Connect

Coates Connect allows you to manage hire equipment and invoicing across all your sites via one user-friendly customer portal.

Monitor off-hire dates, view your rental history, process invoices, and review safety information and service history for all equipment on hire.

The portal also integrates telemetry data from our IoT platform so you can geofence equipment, analyse utilisation rates and even work with a dedicated data analyst to reduce your hire costs.

Product technology

As part our commitment to provide safe, smart and sustainable equipment solutions, we’re investing in the latest equipment and working with OEMs to find hi-tech solutions to industry challenges.

We’re proud to partner with Downer and SITECH WA to trial the 3D Avoidance Zone System, which aims to increase safety on construction sites near critical infrastructure such as rail lines and utilities.

To help keep workers safe while working at heights, we’ve collaborated with leading OEMs to install the EQSS OverWatch™ operator protection system across our entire scissor lift fleet.

As we can continue to expand our fleet of eco-efficient equipment, we’ve even partnered with Generac to help develop the VT-Hybrid lighting tower.
