Commonly asked questions
How does fleet asset tracking work?
GPS asset tracking solutions enable fleet managers to keep track of the locations and conditions of all your high value equipment, including:
- Trailers and containers
- Heavy-duty site equipment such as loaders, bulldozers and excavators
- Lifting equipment and cranes
A GPS device is fitted to each piece of equipment, which sends data in real-time to the fleet asset tracking software. For Geotab, this information is all accessed through one central, web-based platform, MyGeotab.
The best devices for fleet asset tracking have long battery lives, and are built to endure harsh weather and rough handling. These devices are known as being "ruggedised".
Asset tracking solutions for fleets 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.
Data is also captured on engine hours and equipment condition and usage, which can be used to inform maintenance schedules, maximise equipment utilisation, and enable you to provide more comprehensive billing data to your customers.
What is fleet asset tracking software?
Fleet asset tracking software enables fleet managers to understand the locations and conditions of all of your high-value equipment and portable assets. Thousands of fleet assets can be managed and controlled on one single web-based platform that helps you to get the most out of all of your equipment. Fleet asset management solutions help you to ensure that you’re getting a good return on your investments, and mitigates the instances of additional equipment being purchased or hired when assets are sitting idle on other sites. They also minimise time wasted hunting for equipment across multiple job sites.
For Geotab, fleet asset tracking management includes other focus areas such as fleet compliance, vehicle emissions, driver safety and vehicle health.
