Monitor Equipment for Theft
Losing a piece of equipment is frustrating and time consuming to say the least.
In this business, not only does it take an asset out of service, it could also delay other rentals as well as increase your insurance premiums.
Stolen or misplaced equipment can cost an organization 100’s to tens of thousands of dollars of billable time depending on what type of asset was taken.
Using Ascent Fleet Services’ GPS asset tracking solution you can easily see where all your assets are at any time. Create real time landmark fences if certain areas are being monitored such as leaving state lines or the country. Receive alert notifications for yourself, your operations team and your customer when equipment is moved off hours or off the job site.
By setting preset timeframes the asset should be operating you can be alerted if your tractor is turned on, or if it starts moving (being towed) without the ignition.
Maintain Your Assets so They Can Maintain You
Running an equipment rental business you hope your customers are taking care of your assets as well as remembering to service them each time they come in. The good news is you can now automate that process. Use a GPS fleet management tool to help manage this process easily and quickly.
Create preset routine maintenance reminders based on engine hours to keep equipment out in the field longer. Manage multiple maintenance programs on each device to make sure your heavy equipment lasts longer, can be sent out for more rentals and does not fail with a customer while in service.
Whether you are renting by the day, the hour, miles driven or have a contract drafted up based on engine usage, you can easily verify all the above using GPS tracking system to manage your rental fleet.
Create alerts to notify when equipment is due to return. Monitor when specific attachments are in use. Create landmarks around delivery drop off zones to notify operations equipment has returned and to greet the customer. Having the data on hand helps settle any customer disputes and the he said/she said game.
