Plant machinery tracking – is it necessary?
by Fiona Taylor
Is plant machinery tracking more trouble than it is worth?
It costs a huge amount of money for any business who are looking to buy agricultural or haulage equipment and plant machinery. Losing any of that equipment to theft or even misuse of the equipment can be a huge drain on the business. Therefore it is a good idea to use certain precautionary measures, including plant machinery tracking, if you can before the bad happens.
Having a plant machinery tracking system is one of the best precautionary measures you could take.
Installing a powerful and sophisticated plant tracking system is one of them.
Why do you need plant machinery tracking?
- Misuse of equipment
If your plant machinery gets stolen, recovery can be extremely difficult. Replacing it is another matter! Will your budget stretch to buying twice? You could also lose business during the time that piece of plant machinery is missing.
Similarly, if you don’t have any activity-monitoring tracker installed in your plant, a lot of misuse in operation and unnecessary fuel consumption may be going unnoticed. Are you billing for every time the plant machinery is used or are you leaving it on site over weekends and evenings and it is being used without your knowledge? Over use will affect the lifetime of your plant machinery and may affect the service and maintenance costs.
