Virtually all businesses, regardless of industry, have assets they rely on to maintain their day-to-day business operations.

Construction sites have heavy-duty tools, equipment and machinery. Transport companies have trucks they need to carry out deliveries both locally and interstate. And tradespeople like electricians need to have parts with them at all times to carry out maintenance tasks on the spot.

If any of these assets were to be lost, stolen or damaged, it could easily bring business to a grinding halt.

That’s exactly what GPS asset tracking aims to prevent. Here are just some of the many powerful tools you can use to ensure your assets are safe and reliable.

Set up virtual parameters to prevent theft, loss, and misuse

Also known as geofencing, this is a virtual parameter that functions as a designated zone, which determines how far an asset can travel. The beauty of this feature is that you can trace out the exact area where the asset can go. So you have the freedom to establish limits that best suit your unique work situation.

Whenever the asset enters or leaves this perimeter, you will be instantly notified via the software. As a result, you can quickly figure out if the vehicle has been lost or stolen or being misused by a worker, and then take the appropriate measures to respond to the situation.

Real-time fleet tracking for ongoing peace of mind

Whether you need to monitor the whereabouts of vehicles, heavy machinery, cargo, or anything else; real-time GPS asset tracking provides up to the minute updates on the exact location of your assets. This way, you will know exactly where your assets are located, at any time of the day or night.

When combined with location history, you can review the exact route your vehicles have taken in the lead up to their current location. This can help you retrace the vehicle’s steps and increase your odds of finding lost or stolen vehicles. As a result, you will have peace of mind knowing that – no matter what happens – your assets are in good hands.

Improve the lifespan of your fleet with routine maintenance and service reminders

Tired of having to remember to book individual service reminders for your vehicles? Concerned about not having your fleet routinely serviced in a timely and consistent manner?

If so, then fleet tracking can help you.

With routine maintenance and service reminders, you can create unique maintenance plans for each of your individual vehicles. This means you can set up reminders to meet the official manufacture standards of the vehicle itself. So, you can tell the software to send a reminder based on different parameters, such as based on time (i.e. every six months), odometer readings (i.e. every 10,000kms), and hourly run times (i.e. every 5,000 hours). This way, each separate vehicle gets the service it needs at the appropriate service intervals, without any risk of overlap.
