Perkins has announced a major upgrade of the My Engine App user interface that gives customers engine information including engine running hours, location, service reminders and log, consumables information etc after reaching 100,000 downloads milestone since its launch at ConExpo in 2017
The app, working in conjunction with the Edison Gold Award-winning Perkins® SmartCap, gives users access to a wide range of operational, maintenance and service data for their Perkins powered equipment. The app and cap combination is the most cost-effective way to add engine level telematics to a mechanical diesel engine.
“The Perkins My Engine App delivers a huge benefit for owners and operators of Perkins powered machines,” explained Ian Bradford, product manager. “In addition to being a parts book, it’s also an electronic service book providing access to the engine’s Operation and Maintenance Manual. It offers service scheduling and reminders and also includes consumable information for quick reference.”
“The new interface has a clean, modern look and feel,” Ian added. “It also has several new features that enhance the user experience. This upgrade is part of Perkins strategic outreach to aftermarket customers to help them maximise the value of their Perkins powered equipment.”
The upgraded Perkins My Engine App, available as a free download on both the Apple App Store and Google Play, is available in seven languages, with Italian and Turkish included in the most recent app update along with English, French, German, Spanish and Portuguese.
The latest update to the Perkins My Engine App includes:
– Improved visualisation including countdown to next service
– The ability to view multiple engine locations on a single map
– Engine starts per hour counter
– More prominent link to help customers find their local Perkins distributor
Perkins further noted that the low-cost Perkins SmartCap, which replaces the engine’s conventional oil filler cap, is available in the UK and the US on the Perkins online shop and from Perkins distributors in more than 50 countries worldwide.
