Innovative partnership with Kurt König

Kurt König Baumaschinen GmbH has been a strong partner for construction and craftsmanship since its founding in 1932. With 11 locations, the construction equipment dealer has a strong presence across Germany. With a fleet of over 3,500 machines, it was clear that these needed to be digitized and managed across locations to minimize workload and ensure transparency in daily operations.

The challenges:

No telematics

installed in the whole fleet

Equipment localisation

is complicated and takes a long time

Missing APIs

to the internal ERP system and to the data management system

Partnership with syniotec

Contact between syniotec and Kurt König Baumaschinen GmbH was established back in 2018. Together, the two players in the construction industry set out to better plan resources, reduce costs, and optimize operational processes.


Since 2022, the telematics devices developed by syniotec have been installed in the fleet at all locations. Live GPS tracking offers a variety of benefits. In addition to the automatic billing of operating hours during the rental, theft protection is also becoming increasingly important for our partners. Reliable and secure data transmission from the machine’s GPS tracking devices to the software takes place via GPRS data transmission over the mobile network. Besides the theft alarm, there are other advantages. All relevant technical data such as operating hours per project, maintenance intervals and persons responsible for the machine can be viewed centrally from one location. Both the software and the IoT portfolio of syniotec are continuously developed in close exchange with the construction companies.

This close collaboration has resulted in the new IoT device “LINK” in cooperation with Kurt König Baumaschinen and other companies. LINK uses LTE-M and NB-IoT technologies to transmit crucial data.

The latest tracking unit from syniotec measures data such as hours worked or live location without being connected to a power source. This makes LINK ideal for medium-sized construction equipment that does not have a internal power supply.

Almost 70% of the Kurt König fleet is now equipped with syniotec’s IoT technology – and the trend is rising. Thanks to telematics, a robbery was recently solved and the stolen goods were recovered. Kurt König Baumaschinen GmbH knows: The syniotec team convinces with digital competence and deep understanding of the industry. In this way, completely new ideas become a natural part of the construction industry.
