The common path to efficient and automated accounting of joint machines

Maschinenring Österreich & LACOS

In 2019, the Austrian machinery ring was looking for a solution to digitize machine rental and simplify complicated accounting. Initially, there were doubts about the feasibility, as the exact requirements were unclear. But through intensive collaboration between the LACOS project team and the Maschinenring evaluation team, requirements were specified, extensive testing was carried out over several years, and new functions such as "person recognition" were developed. Billing can now be done much faster and easier, thanks to automatic documentation using telematics hardware. In spring 2023, the partnership between the Austrian machinery ring and LACOS for the digitalization of billing was officially concluded.

Initial discussions on the topic of „Digitization of shared machines to simplify and automate billing” + collection of rough requirements the machine ring does not yet believe that it is possible



LACOS has to prove that the digitization of common machines is possible: first test installations on the following use cases: Tractor with slurry tanker, tractor with wooden crane truck, tractor with manure spreader.



the test evaluation is positive, the Maschinenring is convinced that LACOS Telematik can solve the billing problems, a further, more detailed specification of the requirements regarding person recognition and administration is carried out
