caterpillar inc (CAT) Key Developments

Caterpillar and Uptake Enters into Technology and Predictive Analytics Agreement to Create Analytics Solutions

Caterpillar Inc. announced that it has entered into a technology and predictive analytics agreement with Uptake. Caterpillar has made a minority investment in Uptake and will jointly develop an end-to-end platform for predictive diagnostics to help Caterpillar customers monitor and optimize their fleets more effectively. The new technology will be available for both Cat products and non-Cat branded products. As Uptake's exclusive partner in various industries, Caterpillar can leverage its data and operational insights with Uptake's technology and data science platform to provide unparalleled solutions for customers in each of those industries. Caterpillar selected Uptake as its partner based on the capabilities the company witnessed following the agreement with EMD. Uptake's location in Chicago, which is near Caterpillar's headquarters in Central Illinois and the company's concentration of U.S. engineers and factories, was also a key factor. In the coming months, Caterpillar will collaborate with Uptake and the Cat dealer network to roll out the latest predictive analytics and insights through web-based and mobile tools for customers.

Caterpillar Inc. announced that it will keep its global headquarters in Peoria and modernize its downtown complex in what it called a re-commitment to the city. The company will expand the site to 31 acres and six blocks and add walking and biking paths, and 'innovative' workspaces.
