A project manager, rental provider, or equipment manufacturer has to juggle a lot of moving parts, from equipment and materials to workers and schedules. Anything that can make the job easier is worth considering, and that’s where IoT trackers come in. IoT, or the “internet of things,” refers to devices that are connected to the internet and can send and receive data. In the construction industry, IoT trackers can be used to monitor a variety of assets, from heavy machinery to tools and materials. The data collected by IoT trackers can be used to improve workflow, prevent downtime, and even increase safety on the job site. In other words, IoT trackers have the potential to revolutionize the construction industry by making it more efficient and effective.

Using the IoT tracking system to gather and analyze data can address the following problems:

  • Document and monitor your running hours
  • In Predictive Maintenance
  • Protection against theft
  • Prevent downtime
  • Reduce costs and time.

To Record Your Running Hours:

Predictive maintenance is one of the best strategies for actively utilizing running hours in your workflow. You can perform preventive maintenance on your construction equipment or tools appropriately based on the actual usage estimated from lifetime use or accumulated use since the last service check.

You can use power equipment like breakers, hydraulic hammers, or drills in conjunction with machines like excavators, loaders, and trucks to perform predictive maintenance in this manner.

Secondly, when working on a project involving numerous equipment and tools, you can use running hours to ensure that each asset is used properly.

You can immediately determine whether some assets are being overused while others are sitting idle most of the time by looking at the real utilization of important machines and equipment.

Lastly, you can compile thorough reports on the actual utilization of your assets when you are aware of a machine’s running hours.

You have hard data to assess trends in the workplace and the project you are working on, thanks to automatically created reports on the actual usage of your computers and tools.

To determine an asset’s efficacy over time, compare machine or tool performance weekly. Examine data in graphs to spot patterns in usage over time, such as what occurred before breakdowns or whether specific tools are even being used.

At last, you can generate invoices based on the data you have in hand; if the assets are overused, then charges can be applied accordingly.

Beneficial Outcomes:

  • Predictive maintenance with automatic service alarms
  • Monitor based on the working and idle hours
  • Generate invoices depending on rental usage

To Track and Identify Assets:

From a distance, it may appear that the construction sector is experiencing delayed innovation and digitalization. However, Covid-19’s disruptions and the advancements in business tracking in many other industries appear to have sped up this process. “To be innovative, you don’t need to run a huge international company. It involves accepting and responding to a brilliant idea when it is presented to you.

Until recently, location and data tracking in a construction workplace was considered to be good in theory but impractical in practice.

However, the Trusted, compact, reliable battery-powered devices are made specifically for challenging industrial environments and include software features that are ideal for construction firms.

Putting up geofences around the office, creating asset management reports on important assets, and configuring alarms for when equipment needs maintenance or if tools are taken out of the office or used after hours.

On a single data platform, track and find trailers, equipment, and accessories.

Give yourself a brief company overview as you start your day:

  • Check to see if the equipment, add-ons, and trailers are at or away.
  • View the precise whereabouts of an asset during the rental time to uncover fraud.
  • Integrate data into current ERP and management systems from third parties

Beneficial Outcomes:

  • Overview of your complete business
  • Efficient fleet management
  • Full view of the tools and equipment

Incredibly Cheap Theft Prevention:
