Losing your keys or your wallet is a pain, not only will it create additional stress but it eats up valuable time as you have to cancel your cards to protect yourself, just to end up finding them the next day. It's no different if a customer has an urgent job they need you to complete or you have a team that requires some assistance and you have to find out where your equipment is so you can send it to them as soon as possible.
You can track your assets in a variety of ways, for example, QR and RFID tags, these are both things that we will address, but the best way to track your high-value assets that are moving is by utilising a GPS asset tracking solution.
GPS asset trackers will be placed on the asset you want to track, you can track a range of things, you can go from something as simple as measuring equipment to a full industrial generator, all you require is a simple magnet self-install.
The trackers we use are:
GPS asset tracking is incredibly powerful, not only able to track your high-value assets when they are on the move, but have full coverage from anywhere in the world.GET A QUOTE
The Global Positioning System (GPS) utilizes a network of satellites that transmits unique data to a GPS receiver which then triangulates the position of your asset, you can then see this location through our desktop or mobile app on the Google maps integration that we have.
There is no need for data transmission on the user's side, it operates entirely independently from the internet to telephone signal. It is accessible to anyone that has a GPS receiver.
By using several satellites that are designed for GPS asset tracking, they will be able to fully determine exactly where the tracker is. You can also rest assured as our asset-tracking devices have complete coverage from anywhere in the world.GET A QUOTE
As the frequency that the assets are moving around (the more they are being used) the faster you will find that the trackers will need to be recharged. Without a charge, the tracker won't be able to transmit their location.
We track a variety of different types of assets, this includes:
RAM Tracking currently specialises in only GPS asset tracking, although, there is another type of asset tracking that can be used for internal spaces:
There are two types of RFID tracking systems.
It is important to keep in mind that QR code inventory tracking will generally tend to be the most cost-effective of the options available to you when it comes to this kind of inventory application, however, that reduced cost also brings limitations.
In both instances, the most important element is having close proximity. So, if you are looking for warehouse inventory, management or monitoring assets within a series of buildings on site, this is a much better option in comparison to GPS tracking systems.
When a company is looking to track their range of valuable assets, an asset tracker can be quickly placed on or even in these valuable assets that allow your fleet manager to monitor their current location and their status. These devices utilize GPS technology that takes advantage of satellites that are always in orbit that triangulate onto the tracked device, this information is then presented in to the central system for analysis and management.
Asset trackers ensure a business is able to slowly improve the efficiency of their operations by analyzing real-time information such as their location and status. This ensures that your business wastes no time in finding where one of your assets are, the information is just there in front of you. Improve the safety and security of your fleet whilst also saving time.
Asset trackers allow you to track a range of different things, and this includes but isn't limited to; heavy equipment, trailers and any high-value assets (for example tools and machinery). This ensures you have constant updates on where your assets are and if they are being used to their highest capacity.
Our asset trackers utilize GPS technology, which takes advantage of several satellites that are constantly in orbit and triangulates in on the position of the tracker to provide you with the position - this is a method that is accurate within a few metres.
Most asset trackers that are currently available will provide your fleet manager with the information they require through the web-app, for example, you will be able to get their real-time location. However, it is best that you speak with your provider so you can ensure that you reliably get real-time information.
You will find that most modern vehicle trackers store data so you can look upon historical data at a later period - this includes things like their location history so you are able to see where specific assets have been and which day they were there. Properly utilizing this can help you to identify patterns, for example, you can look into the patterns of use, allowing you to move assets to the sites they are needed the most.
Yes, it is exceptionally easy to set up your asset trackers and can be activated through the use of a provider's web app. However, before you get started, we recommend that you talk to a provider about whether or not they offer a professional installation - this will ensure that it is properly set up, but it is also placed in a well-hidden location. This helps to reduce the chances of a driver tampering with the device or a thief removing it to steal your asset.
You will find a lot of benefits to setting up notifications, for example, by setting up alerts to when an asset leaves a predetermined location, you can very quickly understand if someone is attempting to steal an asset. There are many other notifications that you can set up, so it's important that you talk to your provider about your specific needs so you will get everything you need.
This will vary depending on a variety of things; from the features you require to the length of the contract that you want to take out and even down to the provider that you choose. You must also think about the provider you choose in the aspect that some providers will charge you an installation fee. Talk to your provider and ensure that you get an accurate quote by telling them everything you need.
Asset trackers provide you not only with detailed reporting and general analytics, but you also get to see current locations and the need for each asset between sites - this allows you to manage where your assets are based on the need for them. If you notice that a certain asset is being frequently used at a certain time and day, you can send more to one site or if they are not being used on a certain time and day, you can schedule maintenance.
