Asset Tracking With BlueArrow Telematics

Monitor your fleet’s assets whether they’re out in the field or back at home base. BlueArrow’s ruggedly designed asset trackers are perfect for all weather conditions.

Why should you consider Asset Tracking?

Asset tracking is an important investment that will have great returns for your company in multiple areas. The Insurance Services Office (ISO) found that heavy equipment theft has increased 20% every year since 1996. Without asset tracking, only 10% – 15% of this equipment is ever recovered! This doesn’t even include equipment accidentally left behind at a job site. With asset tracking, you will know where all of your expensive equipment is at all times.

Choosing the right asset tracker

Dallas Owens and Digital Matter CEO North America Tim Newberg discuss how to choose the right asset tracker during Geotab Connect 2024 Marketplace Theater.

Understand Your Equipment Utilization

Asset tracking can be a huge help by showing you exactly when and where your equipment is used. With a well-made asset management strategy, you can create a system of checks and balances to identify areas in which you can improve the efficiency of your business. For example, say you have an asset that needs to be used by multiple people and should be returned to a certain location after each use. With asset tracking, you can verify that employees are following the procedures set in place, or even improve existing procedures to boost productivity and reduce expenses.

Future-Proof Your Business

As your asset management strategy becomes more coherent, you will find it much easier to revise your current methods of production and create strong plans of action for the future. Asset management enables you to effectively track when assets are deployed and where they are. It’s easy for your strategy to be versatile, ranging from something as basic as a clipboard to more valuable equipment such as laptops or construction tools. If you have assets subject to constant use, you can be aware of the need to acquire more assets and make an appropriate plan to secure them.

Stay Up-to-date On Equipment Maintenance

Asset management doesn’t have to be just when and where. You can also benefit from knowing the condition of the equipment via direct status updates or verifiable maintenance history. Many types of organizations are in fact required to keep track of equipment maintenance in order to comply with regulations, governmental or otherwise. Your asset management strategy can be comprehensive to account for the upkeep of equipment, while also leveraging the prior two factors to ensure you can do so without completely upending your budget.

Reduce Losses and Prevent Theft

One of the more troublesome aspects of managing a fleet can be trying to locate equipment that has been lost, stolen, or left on a job site. With a thorough asset management strategy in practice, you can be proactive in reducing or eliminating these costs. Asset tracking can offer you peace of mind that your assets are where they are supposed to be and in good condition. If a worst-case scenario occurs where something is stolen or destroyed, you will be ready to act fast to prevent major loss. For example, you can receive reimbursement via warranty when a product fails because you have an empirical maintenance history. If a theft occurs, you can quickly become aware of it and contact authorities with the exact location of your stolen asset.
