A Message From Cavpower’s Managing Director
From the 2nd of November 1972, when Dick Cavill took over the South Australian Caterpillar dealership and formed the Cavpower business, our primary value – “The needs of the customer come first” – has been at the foundation of everything we do. Yes, we are a Caterpillar Dealer, and very proud of the brand we represent and the products and services we deliver. But at the heart of who we are is our true competitive advantage – The needs of the customer come first. Today, Cavpower has over 500 yellow blooded people ready, willing and able to do whatever needs to be done to help your business succeed.
There are many ways we deliver. You can always visit our dealership and any one of its branches to get advice from our people, repair your machine, or pick up parts. We hold large inventories of the latest model new and used machines for you to see, buy or rent. We have made substantial investments in world class remanufacturing and rebuild facilities capable of turning old to new and extending the life of your worn out machines. All of these capabilities and more can be seen throughout this website or “in the flesh” at one of our facilities. A Cavpower person will always be happy to show you around and help you out.
There are also some new things we’d like you to see and new ways of doing business we believe can bring substantial, even “game changing”, benefit to your business. As we enter the digital age, so does Caterpillar and the capabilities of a Caterpillar machine. Through machine connectivity and advanced data analytics many new things are possible. This website is more than an information site, although it is that as well. We intend to build out in front of you a “Virtual Dealership”, offering a range of capabilities and services at the click of a button. With the launch of this website we bring immediate access to the following;
- Parts.Cat.Com – Over 1.4 million parts purchasable online anytime, anywhere, on any device.
- S.O.SSM Services Web – a complete web based system for managing your S.O.S sample information and recommendations.
- VisionLink® – Manage your entire fleet of machines using advanced tools and information to drive productivity. And, yes, we can manage mixed fleets and competitive equipment on the one system.
- My.Cat.Com – View all of your equipment in one place, with one login. The easiest way to access important information about your fleet anywhere you go.
- Online chat – if you have a question or need some help – type away!
As time goes on we’ll continue to bring new features to our Website with the aim of giving you alternative ways of interacting with us and making life easier for you. There’s no need to come into the dealership to get the information or service you need – we’re now on your browser on every device you use.
Cavpower is a company with substantial capacity in facilities and people to help you succeed. We are also a business, with the support of Caterpillar, ready to deliver new digital technologies and with them, large improvements in productivity and profitability. I hope you find this website useful in helping you get the information and tools you need to get moving.
And if there is something it cannot do for you, remember we’re just a click or a phone call away and ready to show you – The needs of the customer come first.
Enjoy the experience.
Alistair Cavill – Managing Director, Cavpower
