Theft Protection

A major benefit of a GPS device is that it tracks every movement of a machine. When a machine moves offsite, you’ll get an alert notification allowing you to track the machine. This allows you to keep watch of your assets.

Cost Savings and Compliance

GPS machinery gives you a range of information about the machine that can help you save time and money. For example, you can monitor fuel consumption as well as know when the machine needs a service. This information is useful to avoid delays and save money in the long run.

Operator Safety and Productivity

GPS devices installed into heavy machinery allow for real time tracking of a machine’s movements. This increases operator safety and productivity by allowing site mangers to respond to potential safety issues quicker.

Administration Benefits

There are also administration benefits to GPS machinery. After a task has been completed, the GPS device can send you reports of data. This includes duration, speed, distance travelled, etc. These reports remove the need for paper logbooks.
