“As more customers adopt digital technology, get connected and value big data, we can provide even greater value,” said De Lange, Caterpillar’s Construction Industries Group President. “Helping our customers be more successful with our products and services has been the cornerstone of Caterpillar for nearly 100 years, and will continue that tradition for the next 100.”

In fact, Caterpillar’s customers are really driving what’s next. As their businesses continue to grow and attitudes toward digital technology continue to evolve, Caterpillar will be right there with them—with the products and services to help them be successful like Cat® Connect Technology and Services.
