Last month in Clayton, California, two excavators were stolen from a construction site. While equipment theft isn’t uncommon in the area, it was the first time two excavators had been stolen from the same site at the same time. For the company, the theft caused a huge setback to the project as they worked to bring other excavators to the site.
A similar case happened in Cumming, Georgia, as a contractor returned to his job site and found that his Bobcat, excavator and trailer were missing. All of the equipment, valued at $62,000, was stolen within a 24-hour period. With equipment theft being a serious issue, many businesses are looking for ways to protect their expensive assets. How can a solution such as asset tracking technology help?
With GPS asset tracking technology, you have all the data you need to recover stolen equipment quickly and easily. Asset trackers can be installed on all types of equipment, and work in any environment and location, no matter how remote. Even if your equipment is left unattended for long periods of time, you can monitor its activity and location, giving you peace of mind that your assets are safe.
