Commonly asked questions
How does asset tracking work?
GPS asset tracking solutions enable fleet managers to keep track of the locations and conditions of high value equipment, such as:
- Trailers and containers
- Heavy-duty site equipment such as loaders, bulldozers and excavators
- Lifting equipment and cranes
- EV fleets
A GPS device is fitted to each piece of equipment. It sends data in real-time to the asset tracking software. For Geotab, this information is all accessed through one central, web-based platform, MyGeotab.
Data that is captured includes information on engine hours and equipment condition and usage. This data can then be used to:
- Establish maintenance schedules
- Maximize equipment utilization
- Enable you to provide more comprehensive billing data to your customers
Asset tracking solutions show you the current location of each device and allow you to set up geofences around your sites so that you can get an instant notification if an asset leaves the site boundaries. This gives you the power to respond immediately if an asset is stolen.
The best devices for asset tracking have long battery lives and are built to endure harsh weather and rough handling. This process is known as "ruggedizing".
What is asset tracking software?
Asset tracking software enables fleet managers to understand the locations and conditions of all high-value equipment and portable assets.
Thousands of assets can be managed and controlled on one single web-based platform so that you can get the most out of all of your equipment. Asset tracking solutions help you to ensure that you’re getting a good return on your investments and mitigate instances of additional equipment being purchased or hired when assets are sitting idle on other sites. They also minimize time wasted hunting for equipment across multiple job sites.
