BUTLER FLUIDS ANALYSIS SYSTEM HAS MOVED TO CAT S•O•S SERVICES MANAGER
We stand by our commitment to provide you with the best customer experience and improve the ease of managing your fluids samples. ON APRIL 9TH, Butler’s Fluids Analysis Lab converted from the current Dakota LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System) to a Cat® S•O•SSM Services Manager platform. You will now be automatically redirected to the new system.
Going forward you will view and manage your samples through the S•O•S Application within the My.Cat.Com Customer Portal. If you are already registered with My.Cat.Com, Parts.Cat.Com, PartStore, SIS or Cat Rewards, you can log in using your current username and password. If not, you may pre-register now at My.Cat.Com. Just look for the REGISTER button on the left side. Click the Register button and follow the instructions for registration. After a few verifications on our end, we will notify you and you will be all set. Once logged in, at the bottom of the main page, in the Quick Links section, you will find a link to the S•O•S Application.

BENEFITS OF FLUIDS ANALYSIS
By monitoring your machine’s fluids on a regular basis, we can help you pick up the warning signs before failures occur and give you options to avoid them all together.
- Helps you schedule downtime to fit your workload.
- Monitors positives as well as negatives, so you won’t have to pay for the repair of components that are not worn out.
- Allows you to monitor maintenance schedules to verify that routine maintenance has been performed.
- Helps you develop a complete service history for each machine. This proves invaluable when evaluating performance and planning replacement purchases.
- Manage budgets by predicting repairs, downtime and equipment life.
- Documents service history for a higher value at trade-in or resale.
Are all Labs the Same?
The S.O.S Program was introduced by Caterpillar in 1971 and soon became recognized as the leader in oil analysis. Below are just some of the reasons why Butler Machinery’s Fluids Analysis Lab offers the most for your money.
- Turnaround Time: Usually within 24 hours – the best in the industry.
- Personal Attention: Most labs, just by sheer volume, have your reports generated by a computer. At Butler Machinery, we have highly trained lab technicians interpreting data and studying your machine history and repair records.
