About SANY

SANY Group began as a small welding factory in China in 1989. Since then, it has grown to include five industrial complexes in China as well as four R&D and manufacturing centers in the United States, Germany, India and Brazil.   

Industry Focus

Heavy equipment manufacturing and sales

Size

40,000 employees in 150 countries

Business Challenge

Commercial equipment manufacturers pay a hefty price for effective resource management solutions, but the return on investment was slim, as was customer reassurance. And, most of the information SANY and its customers needed was not available in real time—and that didn’t help the high theft issue, either.

Solution

The AT&T IoT and GPS solutions allowed SANY to provide its customers with a comprehensive machine-tracking system that delivers all the machine data they need, while increasing the value of the assets themselves. Telematics services from AT&T for commercial equipment include location and history, detailed reports on machine usage, geo-fencing capabilities, and real-time diagnostic and condition alerts.
