Does your company have multiple vehicles, heavy equipment, trailers or other highly valuable assets? If so, do you always know where they are and if someone is using them?
If you’re like most business owners in Charleston and the Lowcountry, you share the stress of having to manage and track your valuable business assets like company vehicles, trailers, delivery vehicles, special equipment and generators, among other things.
Here’s the good news: there’s an easy, affordable solution that allows you to track all of your assets at once — all through your smartphone, tablet and PC. The solution? State-of-the-art GPS tracking devices.
The GPS tracking device installed in your asset gathers position data from one of 24 GPS satellites in Earth’s orbit. This information along with other asset data (such as: start/stop, speed, low battery, etc.) is then communicated, using cellular technology, to our monitoring center. You can then monitor your asset’s postion and other data using your Total Connect 2.0 account.
If you don’t have or need a Total Connect 2.0 account (allows you to remotely control your security system, lights, thermostats, door locks and other smart devices) yet for your home or business, we’ll set you up with one just for your GPS devices.
With GPS tracking devices installed in/on your business assets you can receive on-demand location, speed of travel and history information with times and dates so at any point you can view where your asset operators/users are — with or without them knowing.
You can also setup geofencing: the ability to setup a boundary to define allowable movement for your assets and vehicles.This allows you to make sure your company vehicles and assets are used properly, where they’re supposed to be used.
In case your vehicles or other tracked assets are stolen, the GPS tracking device will help you locate where your theft occurred and where your asset was moved to.
Because your GPS tracking devices are integrated into our Total Connect 2.0 services, you’ll have one, easy-to-use interface on your smartphone, laptop or PC that you can track your physical assets, arm/disarm your security alarm, control your lights, door locks and thermostats, view your security camera feed and receive text or email alerts whenever someone moves your vehicles and/or other assets.
Also, depending on your insurance company and type of insurance you have, by having a GPS tracking device on your business assets you may qualify for insurance discounts.
In short, these new GPS tracking devices reduce your stress and allow you to focus on building your business — a very smart move, indeed.
