Electronic Trailer Locks for The Security of Your Cargos

Protecting your business with high-quality security systems is always a great way of keeping yourself protected from theft. The world has become increasingly focused on security in the world of information, and the threat posed by physical vulnerabilities has not been forgotten as technology moves forward.

Improper maintenance of your keys will inevitably result in loss of time and revenue.

Some discussion needs to be done regarding the traditional lock & key system and the intelligent electronic trailer lock tracker system to understand the necessity of up gradation from traditional lock system to Smart Electronic Lock Tracker.

Features of Traditional lock & metal key system

A lock owner used to have the key to let themselves into their space and keeping access away from all other people who did not have the key. This is the simplest way, isn’t it? If the lock owner wanted to share the space or property with someone else, say family members, relatives or friends, he had to personally visit a locksmith. The locksmith would make an exact copy of the metal key using his tools.  Afterwards he needed to meet the person for whom the key was made for to hand over the duplicate key or he had to physically go and post or assign someone to deliver the key to the person.

It is important to take stock of every potential way the security of your keys might become compromised. Misplacement is the most common culprit, for example, when an employee forgets to actually place the key back in the secure locker before heading home, or the keys going missing entirely. Mismanagement is the leading cause of misplacement; this happens when the key isn’t properly tracked in the company system, whether it is actually missing or not.

Connecting locks to the internet is a new phenomenon, bringing new opportunities, and allowing locks to reach their full potential, designed for the cargo compartments of vans and semi-trailers, the device protects the rear doors of trailers and light commercial vehicles to prevent intruders from breaking into vehicles

Asset Management and Heavy Equipment Tracking

Remote job sites and hectic schedules can make heavy equipment tracking very challenging. Loss prevention is a huge issue across many industries, as large equipment can be hard to follow. Thanks to new advances in GPS tracking technology, companies can use a digital eye to do the dirty work.

Asset Management and Heavy Equipment tracking

What is GPS Heavy Equipment Tracking Technology?

The same system that is used in our smart phones can also be installed in heavy equipment to enable a real-time view of it’s transitory life-cycle. GPS tracking is a means of making sure you are always aware of the exact coordinates for all equipment involved in a job site. If something is late—or worse—stolen, immediate measures can be taken to prevent further loss.

This type of technology is popular in a variety of industries including the following:

  • Construction
  • Manufacturing
  • Utilities
  • Infrastructure and roadways
  • Landscaping
  • Farming
  • Shipping and Logistics
  • Restaurants and food trucks
  • Motorsports trailers

GPS tracking technology (also referred to as telematics) can help measure the health of your system to make sure it is always running at peak performance levels. Any job that involves heavy equipment tracking can be a big investment, so it is critical that you have a system in place for all the checks and balances in the asset management of a project. The following are some of the ways in which telematics is benefiting companies right now:

Tracking

The best means to safeguard your assets is to track them through every step of the project. A  Heavy Equipment GPS Tracking Device allows a company to locate equipment and monitor how it is managed in real-time. The unit is usually discreetly attached to each piece of equipment and is ruggedized and weatherized resistant.

Loss Prevention

The true purpose for the tracking abilities of telematics is loss management. A large problem across all industries, theft of heavy equipment can stall a project and cost a company millions of dollars. Options like a “starter disable” on GPS tracking technology allows a company to remotely immobilize equipment and prevent further theft.

Time Management

Tracking abilities extend beyond equipment theft. It also allows a company to monitor the way their assets are being deployed and how employees are managing their time. This enables better overall scheduling and planning. Additionally, it helps prevent loss in terms of driver overtime, as the system knows exactly when the equipment is engaged 24-hours a day.

Instant Alerts

 GPS monitoring software will also alert you with real-time equipment updates throughout the lifecycle of your project. Automated SMS and e-mails can tell you things like:

  • Received and completed deliveries
  • Compliance breaches
  • Unauthorized equipment use
  • Geofence alerts

Although tracking is the obvious benefit to GPS technology, telematics can also help you maintain the life of your equipment.

Maintenance

Modern asset management involves programs that watch your equipment on levels a human eye is incapable of. Heavy Equipment tracking technology not only enables personnel to locate and manage equipment efficiently, it can also report on performance. The software will look at metrics like:

  • Engine hours and usage
  • Inventory
  • Equipment idling
  • Fuel usage
  • Job-site management
  • Component management

Using these types of data points, a GPS tracking program can report and recommend a preventative maintenance program that will extend the lifecycle of your equipment.

Accurate reports on past service, mileage, and engine hours can help plan for future projects and necessary maintenance. When looking for top-notch GPS tracking equipment, a system that works with no power supply (and a 2-6 month battery backup) is your best option.

Reporting

 The most underutilized, yet highly valuable aspect of GPS tracking is smart reporting. Detailed monthly reports can assist with keeping track of top performing equipment and where to focus repairs.

The technology can also help notify when regular maintenance is due on equipment to keep them running at peak performance. Vehicle maintenance notifications always ensure regulations and standards are being met.

Fleet management software like GPS tracking can also dig deeper and help determine if assets are being utilized to their fullest potential and where to make cuts. This type of data allows for smarter decisions that result in larger savings on cost and labor.

GPS tracking technology solves some age-old challenges to heavy equipment management. It gives business owners the ability to sit as a “fly on the wall” of every piece of equipment they own. This enables greater control of things like loss prevention, efficient usage, inventory control, and labor management.

Installing an effective GPS tracking system not only extends the life of your heavy equipments and trailers, it allows you to streamline projects, and forecast success at a higher rate.  To know more visit us at: AssetTrackr Pvt.
