The Crosby Group and Versatile enter into strategic partnership

Los Altos, California-based Versatile has partnered with The Crosby Group to deliver a platform to help project teams leverage hard data points for easier decision making in the field. Through autonomous capabilities of measuring thousands of data points, CraneView fuels real-time insights to power smart decisions that impact cycle time, overtime, and crane demobilization, and allows new standards to be set for current and future projects.


Integral to the below-the-hook product is Crosby Straightpoint’s state-of-the-art load monitoring technology and Crosby branded rigging hardware. The combination of this hardware and technology enables project teams to eliminate overtime, stay ahead of schedule without changing project team workflows, and more.

The Crosby Group, the global leader in lifting, rigging, and material handling hardware, will showcase a range of products used to make lifting and load securement safer and more efficient, through its portfolio of premier brands including Crosby, Gunnebo Industries, Crosby Straightpoint, Acco, McKissick, Trawlex, Lebus, and CrosbyIP.  CraneView will be a focal point of the exhibit.

Meirav Oren, co-founder and CEO at Versatile said: “The Crosby Group and Versatile have partnered to provide world-class load monitoring and rigging hardware associated with CraneView. Our passion for providing technology that drives action without interrupting the flow of work allows CraneView to be seamless and impactful. We’re excited to share our story with the world’s foremost construction and lifting industry decision makers at CONEXPO.”

CONEXPO visitors will learn how CraneView delivers real-time insights, specific to each job site while integrating quickly and seamlessly into existing processes. Oren added previous client engagements demonstrate that the product has created an impact on:

  • Crane cycle time reduction of 25-50%
  • Overtime reduction of nearly $20k of monthly savings
  • Earlier crane demobilization for multi-crane projects of five to six weeks

The Crosby Group will host two booths at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020, one indoors at Central Hall (C20637) and one outdoors on the Festival Grounds (F3686). See CraneView at booth F3686.
