Do you need GPS plant tracking? 3 reasons why you do.
by Fiona Taylor
GPS plant tracking is a unnecessary waste of money – yes?
NO! Plant machinery is highly vulnerable to theft and misuse. The construction industry loses millions each year. Therefore plant managers think that GPS plant tracking is incredibly important. Consequently installing plant tracking allows them to minimise their risks.
At Satmo we think that it is essential to be able to see at a glance exactly what is happening with your plant. GPS plant tracking allows users to have a real-time overview of all machinery. As a result this helps with scheduling, billing and security.
The benefits for a company using the Satmo GPS plant tracking system are:
- At any point they can see where their vehicles are LIVE allowing them to manage their assets.
- Users can rename their trackers on a simple to use admin page. Vehicle registrations or the hirers name can be input allowing customers to have relevant information on screen.
- Any number of points of interest can be added to the geofence alert feature. An email or text message is sent to alert customers each time the selected tracker enters or leaves a predefined area. Customers add as many points of interest as they need and specify which trackers will be monitored by each geofence, with different contacts being alerted where necessary.
Fleet managers have to service plant machinery by the hours used.
The warranty is conditional on regular servicing at recommended intervals. With this in mind the Satmo solution is designed to capture the hours used. Alerts are then generated enabling companies to have full control of their plant machinery.
Theft of plant and equipment is a constant risk and results in considerable added costs. Customers are notified of any movement by the GPS plant trackers. Because the trackers have an in-built motion detector customers can be notified of any movements outside of approved areas and times.
