Asset Tracking Queries Put To Rest

by Jan 10, 2020TECHNOLOGY

Asset tracking is a method of tracking or tracing down physical assets, either through attached GPS tags, RFID stickers or barcode labels. Asset tracking is less of a requirement and more of a necessity if you are a business that dwells on asset management and control.

  • To help us better understand your needs, what type(s) of assets are you working with?

Asset tracking as a system allows the end-user to attach a GPS based device, a barcode label or an RFID tag to equipment or an asset that relays the location of the equipment or the asset to a centralised system.

The GPS unit attached to the equipment gives you real-time information about your equipment’s location, fuel levels, unauthorised usage and many more things.

You can set them to track constantly, or you can remotely switch them on and off, and it’s a way for business owners to keep an eye on all of their equipment when it’s on a job site and away from the business.

Why is Asset Tracking Important?

For one, each piece of equipment can easily cost into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, and they’re usually quite an investment for a business. If they get lost or stolen, you want a fast and efficient way to recover these assets, and having a tracking system installed is an almost certain way to find them. It’s also essential to protect your assets from unauthorised usage that could result in injuries or equipment failure.

Assets that are tracked using electronic tracking devices are easier to manage and track with real-time location data that is critical to function. The assets which are tagged for tracking transmit their location using a cellular or satellite network or a combination of both in certain cases.

The GPS tracking devices are self-powered through on-board batteries or device power through the asset’s power source.

How does Asset Tracking work?

You have the GPS unit and the receiver when you use GPS asset management tracking. You attach the GPS unit to your asset, and you have the receiver at your business. There are 24 satellites around the world that send signals to create a network. These satellites send signals to the GPS unit, and it then relays the signal to your receiver. You’re able to seamlessly use these signals to track your asset’s movement in real-time to pinpoint the exact location.

What Industries Use Asset Tracking?

A few sectors that invest in asset tracking include;

Construction & Equipment
Oil, gas & mining
Security services
Professional services
