Let’s take a look at some of the main reasons why you should invest in asset tracking:
Locate tools and equipment
Asset tracking is all about finding out where your tools and equipment are in the quickest time possible. Whether you’re looking for an automated way to sign tools in and out of the tool store, or you want to keep an eye on the distribution of medical equipment across hospital wards, there’s an asset tracking system that can help.
Cut down on costs
How many times have you bought or rented equipment when you haven’t needed to? An asset tracking system will help you to avoid unnecessary expenditure, because you’ll always know for sure whether a tool is available or not.
And when you know exactly how many assets you have available at a specific time, you’ll be able to bid on, and commit to, projects quicker, beating the competition.
Access tool and equipment data from anywhere
An asset tracking system will enable you to bring up the location of a tool or a piece of equipment within a matter of seconds.
But that’s not the only information you’ll be able to see. You’ll also be able to store service certificates, part replacement dates and information on tool condition, so you’ll have all the details you need to run your business effectively.
With all that information at your fingertips, you’ll be able to see just how much your tools are costing your business.
Access tool information from anywhere
All of the information collected by your asset tracking hardware will automatically transfer across to the software, which you’ll have downloaded on your office computer or cell phone. This means you’ll be able to access your tool data from anywhere, whether you’re on site or sunning it up on vacation.
You leave a lot of equipment onsite overnight. So how do you know that someone isn’t going to sneak in and steal it after dark? You don’t. Except, with asset tracking technology, you’ll receive an instant alert if one of your tools or pieces of equipment happens to cross your site boundary. This means you’ll be able to inform the police straight away and avoid that tool straying too far.
