Why invest in asset tracking?
Companies that rent out or lease cranes need a comprehensive asset tracking system to stay on track with their profits. Here are some reasons for you to invest in asset tracking and inventory tracking.
Heavy equipment such as cranes involves a lot of expenditure and the management of many complex parts. Safeguarding individual equipment as the crane moves between locations and within is important to boost profits.
Equipment theft costs between $300 million to $1 billion each year. Given the large scale of operations and poor security, construction sites can be the ideal spots for thefts. In 2016, more than 12,000 thefts at construction locations were reported according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau and the National Equipment Register (NER).
With intelligent asset tracking, you can get real-time reports on the exact usage of the crane, start and stop timings.
