Will your equipment be unattended during the weekend or the holidays? By setting up a Geofence the management of equipment will be much easier, including when you are away. This is how it works.

Geofence = Electronic fence to prevent construction theft

With ABAX Geofence you will be able to check the status of all of your vehicles, equipment, and tools even if you are away. Our customers can create a geographical area for where the assets are allowed to be moved, beyond that area a notice will be sent to the manager.

What is Geofence?

The geofence is an electronic fence that you can create in any shape on the map. The geofence technology will notify you when equipment or machines with our hardware installed enter or leaves the predefined area. The equipment control will report the GPS - coordinates from the location of the unit, if the coordinates do not match the "electronic fence" defined, you will be notified by mail or SMS.

Geofence areas allow you to create virtual fences/areas that overlay the map. This area is given a name and can then be used to help gain control of all equipment, all kinds of vehicles, machines, and tools with an ABAX Equipment control unit installed can be used in reporting features or help protect your equipment in the case of theft.

Geofence is an electronic fence to improve your asset control.

Tailored to your needs

Like real fences, the digital geofence may have several sizes. You define what area you need to control, for example, a house, a congestion zone, a plant, or the whole district. The technology will help you gain control over what vehicle, equipment, and machines are entering and leaving the pre-set area with real-time GPS signals.

You will be notified when your equipment or tools are on the move, making it less likely to lose assets from a plant closed for public holidays, you will have complete control over all company equipment at all times.

Great reports will help manage your mixed fleet

We have multiple reports that will make it easier for you to manage all your assets, including reports to ensure you can invoice your customers the correct amount. The Geofence report will ensure you have a great overview of the number of times spent per visit, and the 'In geofence now report' will show you what assets are located within the geofence when they entered, and for how long the equipment has been in your Geofenced area. 

Notification settings

Would you like to be notified when your equipment is on the move?

In our interface, you can set a notification to alert you when your assets are on the move to multiple respondents. Choose if you prefer to get a message on SMS or email within the map at the same stage as you create the geofence.
