JCB simplify machine location with what3words


Company’s LiveLink telematics portal updated with full integration to global location system

THE JCB LiveLink telematics portal has been updated to include full integration with the what3words global location system.

what3words is a pioneering system that maps the entire globe into 3m x 3m squares, giving each location a unique three-word reference. The addition of what3words functionality to JCB LiveLink means that every single machine connected to the system can instantly be pinpointed to a specific location at any time.

This simple yet effective system makes it possible to identify an exact location without a postcode or a street address. For JCB equipment, which often works on sites without post codes, it is easy to use what3words with LiveLink.

With a single click, the what3words location of any machine is shown. This integration not only benefits the customer, but also aids JCB dealers and service technicians in locating the machine and can help police forces in the recovery of stolen machines.

Launched in 2011 and with more than 300,000 machines now monitored by the system, JCB LiveLink gives machine operators and fleet managers easy access to all fleet data through an online portal and mobile app.
