GPS trackers: Companies using technology
In part one of this series, we talked about a few benefits provided by GPS trackers for the construction industry and in part two of this series, we’re going to talk about 2 more. Not knowing when to replace equipment or handle routine maintenance can be a major pitfall for any company, but it really impacts construction companies with their large equipment. If one vital piece of equipment isn’t operational, a whole job will be delayed. Coupled with keeping maintenance under wraps is keeping equipment safe from theft. That’s where GPS trackers come into play.
1.) Maintenance: With GPS trackers, maintenance and equipment replacement costs can be monitored more closely. The way that works is that alerts can be set to remind management of maintenance needed so as not to avoid it or forget it. Additionally, distributed usage of vehicles and equipment can be tracked to prevent overuse or underuse.
2.) Protection: Geofence alerts can be set for more than just fuel usage monitoring. In fact, they can be set to keep track of vehicle or equipment during off-hours. This sends an alert if equipment is moving when it isn’t supposed to be. Stolen equipment can be easily traced and returned.
Taking care of heavy duty vehicles and equipment is a big job, but much more doable with the help of technology. Removing the option to skip repairs and have to pay more in repair costs, later, is a fantastic gift to receive. Likewise, GPS trackers allowing theft prevention is a major relief. It is truly incredible how many ways GPS trackers can help the construction industry. Do you want to join the leaders of the pack and obtain a great way to save time and money? If so, you’ve come to the right place.
