The Perkins® My Engine App was first released in March this year. Since then, the app has gone from strength to strength, with thousands of downloads across the world and expansion from an initial release in English to include French and German variants.
The free app, available on both the Apple App Store and Google Play, helps our customers understand their engine and keep in touch with us, their local expert.
Perkins were first to market and are still the only engine manufacturer to offer an app of this kind.
The Perkins My Engine App offers end users a wealth of useful engine information, all neatly contained in the one device they are likely to have with them at all times, their smartphone.
Key features include:
- Free Android and Apple app
- Available in English, French and German
- Register multiple Perkins engines in one place
- Service log
- Service push notifications
- Distributor locator
- Access engine specific content
- Quick view on consumable parts

For customers who owns multiple machines, Perkins are now also releasing the Perkins® SmartCap, an essential tool which provides valuable information about how the machines are being used, when they need to be serviced, and where they are.
To make possible the ability to receive engine information on a mobile device which is remote from the machine, Perkins employ crowd data collection technology, whereby any My Engine apps running within range of the SmartCap act as a proxy, transmitting data to the Cloud, which you then receive on your app.
