WesTrac is one of the largest dealers that sells Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT) equipment. The renewed agreement between these two companies has Palantir providing the company with deep data insight via its Foundry platform.
Palantir’s foundry platform will initially be integrated into WesTrac’s Component Rebuild Centres and Inventory Management departments. This will help increase throughput and identify deficits to allow for more efficient operations.
Jarvas Croome, CEO at WesTrac, said the following about this news:
“Implementing Foundry has delivered a strong initial return on investment, and we anticipate the five-year expansion of our partnership with Palantir will enhance ROI and enable more data driven decisions. The Foundry platform has been a leading feature within WesTrac, with rapid uptake, high usability, and widespread acceptance by users across the business.”
