Businesses that focus on construction and building frequently call upon technical modern marvels in order for them to create houses, bridges or any number of structures. This equipment is utilized where simple man power falls short, allowing a project to get complete is the safest and most time-efficient window possible. Bull dozers, fork lifts and skid steers are the names of these marvels that provide the heavy assistance, but it is something much smaller that is protecting skip steers and other machinery from the rising problem of theft.
The miniature devices that are being used to safeguard skip steers are portable units known as GPS tracking devices. What these portable GPS trackers do is offer companies that utilize heavy machinery a way to get real-time updates on where their equipment is located and how the equipment is being used. The GPS tracker devices offer both portability and hard-wiring option, can send out notifications if equipment is moved without authorization, document how employees are using heavy equipment and essentially offer what many law enforcement agencies describe as one of the best asset protection solutions on the market today.
"Investing in SilverCloud GPS hardware was a no brainer for my contracting business because it let me check on workers while also helping us against theft", a small business contractor based in Huntsville, Alabama stated. "Our company has had concerns over some employees falsifying time sheets and we also had a skid steer loader stolen so we were more than anxious to get GPS going."
Tracking Skip Steers
Real-time GPS trackers can provide live locational data, driving records, mileage, vehicle speed information and safe zone boundaries all with the easy click of a mouse. Many of these sophisticated tracking devices even offer a web-based monitoring platform so users don't need to download any software. This is a useful feature because it can give business owners and asset managers the ability to access information on their equipment from any location! This is because the GPS tracking data can be reviewed on any system that has an Internet connection, including mobile devices!
Skid steer portable tracking devices provide detailed reporting information and most importantly the ability to stay connected to such valuable assets/property.
