Monitoring More Than Just Vehicles with GPS Asset Tracking

By Kevin Aries February 2, 2020

GPS tracking is an indispensable fleet management solution that can help to boost efficiency and improve fleet safety. However, the resources of your business extend well beyond your drivers and their vehicles. With so many vehicles spread across wide service areas, it can be difficult to keep track of your fleet, let alone any additional assets in the field. GPS-based asset tracking can help to ensure that no asset, large or small, is overlooked while providing managers and business owners with much-needed peace of mind.

Asset Tracking Monitors Moveable and Fixed Assets

By installing GPS-tracking devices on moveable and fixed assets, such as containers and trailers, managers and business owners are able to keep an eye on all aspects of their business and make certain that their assets receive the necessary attention. This can pertain to smaller pieces of equipment like generators in addition to larger assets such as pods. When considering the high cost of fleet equipment, it only makes sense that fleet managers and business owners would want to monitor their assets in the field.

With any number of vehicles and drivers reporting in every day, there'۪s the possibility for movable assets to get lost in the shuffle. Through the installation of mounted and self-powered asset-tracking devices, you'۪re able to monitor these assets within or outside of a fleet'۪s service area in near-real time while receiving detailed status reports.

Ensure All Assets are Accounted for Through GPS Tracking Solutions

Thanks to automated alerts, managers and business owners can be confident that all assets are accounted for. Fleet managers are able to manually adjust the frequency of updates it'۪s anywhere from every 15 minutes to daily to keep you informed. This way, if a container is ever missed during a shipment or delivered to the wrong location, a manager or business owner will be notified in a matter of minutes and capable of taking action to provide a proactive solution.

The asset tracking system can be accessed directly from the online dashboard used by the fleet'۪s existing GPS tracking solution. With an installed asset tracker, managers and business owners are able to direct equipment transfers and adjustments allowing for the control of multiple assets or job sites from the comfort of their computer or mobile device.
