WHAT IS CONSTRUCTION EQUIPMENT TRACKING?
Construction companies need to know where their assets are and how they’re being used. GPS tracking for construction equipment means you’ll always know where your assets are located. GPS tracking for construction equipment can answer two simple questions: Where is my equipment and what is it doing?
GPS asset tracking for construction equipment involves fastening a small device to the equipment you’d like to track. You’ll find that iGlobal makes two kinds of tracking devices: untethered and tethered. The difference between the devices is easy to understand. iGlobal’s iVision X.1 is a tethered device. Tethered devices are hardwired into your construction equipment’s electrical system and are powered that way. Untethered devices, like iGlobal’s iVision X.2 and X.5, are powered by an internal battery. iGlobal’s tethered GPS units ping the location of your device every 3 minutes. The untethered devices ping location once per day. Both tethered and untethered systems use satellites to determine the location of your equipment.
From iGlobal’s easy to use online tracking portal, you can make a number of determinations about your equipment. In addition to determining vehicle location, you can use GPS data to:
- Monitor vehicle speed to see how your equipment is being used
- Collect information about mileage to see which vehicles work the hardest
- See when your equipment is being used to monitor employees
- Determine if unauthorized use is occurring and stop fuel fraud
GPS tracking for construction equipment can help you monitor your assets and more.
