What Is Equipment Telematics?
Equipment telematics uses GPS, sensors, dashboard cameras, and comprehensive software programs to keep track of power machines. They give fleet managers and equipment owners the ability to monitor key metrics that can result in better fleet maintenance, safety, fuel efficiency, and project management.
Construction Fleet Management Using Telematics
Telematics enables power equipment managers to monitor fuel consumption and the frequency of vehicles idling. This can help save fuel costs and may even help companies implement more environmentally friendly practices.
Through telematics, you can monitor power equipment maintenance in real-time with the ability to send yourself alarms regarding battery voltage, air filter status, DEF pressure, etc.
Telematics, through geofencing, helps fleet and project managers know where each machine is at all times. This not only greatly decreases the chance of theft of power equipment but decreases the chance of your expensive equipment being used in unauthorized ways, off-site.
You also can run reports, lassoing historical data on how often a piece of power equipment was used and for how long. This data can be used to facilitate more accurate bidding for future construction projects and job estimates.
