What is an EAT?

The Equipment Asset Tracker is a smart tracker that can help to protect a variety of trailers, equipment, vehicles and valuable assets in combination with a fleet management system. By using equipment asset trackers, fleet managers can remotely locate and manage valuable items like equipment, assets, trailers, and generators.

Equipment asset trackers are available as powered and non powered assets. Powered assets are those which have their own power supply. Non-powered assets include generators, tanks, gear boxes, tools, dumpsters and any other equipment that do not have their own power supply.

The benefits of equipment asset trackers

Investing in equipment asset trackers can provide added security from theft or to locate missing assets. Equipment asset trackers provide:

  • Near real-time notification when an asset is used during unauthorized time periods or off-hours
  • Near real-time notification if an asset is moved or towed
  • Near real-time notification if an asset is taken outside specified geofenced areas
  • The ability to locate assets and assist in theft recovery using breadcrumb tracking

Tracking location of assets has benefits beyond theft mitigation. If you can find your asset’s location in near real time you can also easily find the nearest asset to help with unexpected jobs or customer requests on the fly, allowing you to be more nimble and responsive to customer requests.

Additionally, customers can enjoy benefits from reporting for a deeper understanding of usage and asset assignment. Reporting helps you analyse how and when your assets are in use. This helps you:

  • Determine asset location and assignment, which can help you find unauthorised usage
  • Determine stops and length of time on assignments, which can help with payroll, invoicing and other back office functions
  • Plan for maintenance
  • Calculate asset ROI by enabling a deep view of how often assets are utilised
