Automate Your Asset Management

With our geofence tool, you can quickly draw a virtual boundary around any important location—job sites, your company’s parking lot—and the app will automatically record all of your pieces of heavy equipment and assets entering or leaving that zone. Use them to automatically monitor the comings and goings of your fleet. Make sure your heavy equipment isn’t being hoarded by your Supers.

We’ve Got Your Back Anywhere, Anytime

When you GPS track your heavy equipment, you’ll get a text alert from us if it moves when it shouldn’t. Other ClearPathGPS clients have been able to watch suspicious movement in realtime in our portal and communicate this information to police over the phone. Thieves caught. Equipment recovered. Peace-of-mind restored.

Hoarders. They’re Not Just On Reality TV.

If you run a construction company, you likely have a hoarder or two lurking on your job sites. They may not have garbage or food strewn all over their homes, but they probably have heavy equipment that your other Supers could be using on other job sites gathering dust instead of racking up the engine hours.

Whatever the reason for hoarding – no incentive to let the tool go, capped charges, project stoppages/delays – it can do serious damage to your bottom line. One way to solve the problem is to start GPS tracking your heavy equipment.

Here are the top 5 ways GPS tracking heavy equipment can help hoarding employees clean up their acts:

1) Period of Time Charging

Geofence your job sites and start using period-of-time charging. This will incentivize your PMs and Supers to return the equipment to the yard as quickly as possible.

2) “General Wear” Fees

Even if you’ve capped the charges for holding the equipment on a job site for the entire project, GPS heavy equipment tracking makes it possible to charge for the equipment based on engine hours. You can define the point at which the equipment is used more than the allotted number of hours and start charging for general wear/maintenance.

3) Preventative Maintenance

Define a period of time after which your assets have to be returned to the yard for maintenance to help you extend your equipment’s life span.

4) Project Timelines

Because your project leaders are likely money (bonus) motivated to get their projects wrapped up as quickly as possible, this can make asset hoarding really attractive to them. However, for business owners, every hour that equipment is not being used when it *could* be means lost revenue. GPS heavy equipment tracking tells you where your equipment is and what their use looks like can make movement between nearby jobsites much more streamlined.

5) Project Stoppages

If you’re tracking mileage and/or hours used and when, you can keep track of when assets are sitting idle and react appropriately. (Better yet, if you realize you’re starting to rack up engine hours again after a project stops, you can resume billing the client.)

These are just a few ways that heavy equipment hoarding can really hurt your business…and GPS tracking can help. If you’re not GPS tracking your assets, equipment, and vehicles yet, what’s stopping you? Our industry-leading service and support team at ClearPathGPS can help you custom-tailor our system to fit your company’s needs and start padding your wallet instead of the alternative.

After all, isn’t that what you’re in business to do?

More Ways Heavy Equipment Tracking Software Can Boost Profitability

Key Equipment Tracking Definitions

  • What Is Telematics?

    Telematics is the process of gathering data from one source and transmitting it to other sources over a network. One of the most common commercial applications is vehicle telematics, which is comprised of the following:

    • A device installed in each of the business’s vehicles (or other assets, such as trailers and heavy equipment), which uses GPS and other technology to capture and record a wealth of information about these assets.
    • A network to transmit this data to the company for real-time use, as well as to store the data for review later and for documentation and compliance purposes.
    • A centralized online dashboard where company managers and executives can review both real-time and historical information about the company’s fleet.

    LEARN MORE

  • What are Geofences?

    A geofence is a location-based technology that works by drawing a virtual or imaginary border around an actual geographic area. (This area can be any size and any shape.) Using tracking technology (such as GPS), the person monitoring a geofence can receive alerts when specific devices or assets enter or leave the geofence area.

    Because you can create a geofence around literally any physical boundary, you can use this technology to secure your fleet anywhere. You’ll probably want to place geofences, for example, around jobsites, your company’s garage, parking lot, or wherever you store your vehicles and large fixed assets overnight.

  • How Fleet Management and Telematics Work Together

    Vehicle telematics is just one piece of the fleet management puzzle. It represents a set of technologies and processes designed to help capture, transmit, and store data that can improve the performance and ROI of a business’s fleet.

    • A vehicle tracking solution’s ability to record and deliver vehicle location data can help a fleet manager more accurately document and report drivers’ time on jobs, for billing and timecard purposes.
    • It can also report on real-time and historical data about driver behavior—average speeds, braking, acceleration, cornering etc.—can give a fleet manager insight into which drivers are mishandling company vehicles. A fleet manager can use this information to incentivize drivers to behave more responsibly.
    • Telematics also has the ability to track and report on engine hours and miles logged for each vehicle can make it easier for a fleet manager to keep track of each vehicle’s regularly needed fleet maintenance schedules, which can help boost the company’s long-term ROI of its vehicles.

1. Increased Cost Savings – Save on fuel and equipment maintenance costs

In a study cited by Trucks.com, at a price point of $2.50 a gallon, even a measly 1% in fuel savings can save fleets an annual total of $400 per truck in fuel costs. FuelEconomy.gov of the U.S. Department of Energy estimates fuel savings to be anywhere between $0.25 and $1.00 per gallon if drivers drove sensibly instead of aggressively.

Equipment tracking software monitors driver behavior that can contribute to fuel wastage, including:

  • Excessive idling
  • Over-revving
  • Accelerating too quickly or slowly

Armed with the above data, you can issue the appropriate warning and even schedule crash courses on fuel economy for erring drivers. Emergency braking or aggressive driving can also speed up tire tread wear, and equipment tracking software helps you spot and call out such behaviors. Not only that. With a fleet management system, you also get service alerts for vehicle maintenance.

2. Improved Productivity

Instill employee accountability and increase productivity with heavy equipment tracking software, which logs driver inefficiencies that will cost you money if left unchecked, such as:

  • Aggressive driving
  • Excessive idling
  • Long lunch breaks
  • Time card padding
  • Side jobs
  • Deliberately slowing down work
  • Unauthorized travel

When you start monitoring your heavy equipment usage, your drivers would have second thoughts about cheating on their time cards or wasting company time/resources. Plus, if you know exactly which pieces of yellow iron are on jobsites vs. in the yard, you can create a new revenue stream by renting out equipment that’s gathering dust.

3. Customer Satisfaction

Provide real-time engine hours reports to customers. With the data that fleet management systems collect in real time, you can provide customers with proof of service when customers question an invoice, saving you money (and a headache)!

4. Timely Alerts

With GPS monitoring software, a piece of equipment that’s moving with the engine turned off could indicate that the equipment is being towed. With real-time gps trackers that update every 30 seconds and installation that prevents tampering, a heavy equipment tracking system is your best bet against theft. After all, one hijacked piece of heavy equipment can quickly set you back thousands in goods and capital equipment.

Final word

Risk management is crucial for any business – much more so for small businesses managing both a fleet of vehicles and heavy equipment. If the initial cost of investing in a monitoring system is giving you pause, think about the ROI you’ll get in the long term.
