Launch of the new REDUCE platform!
Manitou Group is launching a completely new version of its site reduce-program.com. Fully consistent with the group's CSR approach, this platform, which is dedicated to improving the quality of work life of machine users, aims to improve their productivity and safety while at the same time reducing environmental impact. To achieve this goal, the group has developed three components, which are REDUCE Fuel, REDUCE TCO, and REDUCE Risks, the latest tool of this program, dedicated to accident prevention and the safety of people and machines.
Launched in 2013, Manitou Group's “REDUCE” site has been expanded with a wide range of features. The ergonomics have been completely redesigned, with optimized readability to enhance user comprehension. A new component has been added to the REDUCE platform. Dedicated to accident prevention and the safety of people and machines, the aim of the “REDUCE Risks” section is to advise users via accident prevention posters, maintenance documents, operating instructions, and a media library of 300 videos tutorials.
The second key development concerns the TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) calculators for the Manitou, Gehl and Mustang brands, which are now included on this one site. The numerous criteria of use make the search accurate, enabling the machine best suited to the needs and activities of the user to be identified in a few clicks.
Third major point, the REDUCE Fuel calculator is also integrated into the new platform. Based on a Manitou protocol for measuring fuel consumption (telehandlers and platforms) and validated by UTAC*, the calculator applies a strictly identical methodology to compare the fuel consumption of two machines in the same range (including competitor machines).
*UTAC: Union Technique de l'Automobile, du motocycle et du Cycle (car, motorcycle and bicycle technical union)
This new site demonstrates our group's desire to continue to put CSR at the center of our concerns
