Tool and equipment theft is on the rise

Small yet powerful tracking devices.

The average cost of theft and vandalism to the construction industry in the UK alone is around £800 million; known for its high-value assets, it’s not surprising that businesses find themselves easy targets for thieves.

Regardless of what you want to track – we have a solution. Construction relies on maximising output, so it’s vital you choose a system that can offer you visibility into the various facets of your business – from your smartphone or desktop device.

Increase plant security with telematics:

  • Geofence to control assets going out of an area 
  • GPS an Bluetooth tracking getting position on all valuable data 

How does GPS tracking work?

Global positioning systems and GPS enabled telematics have proven to be essential for construction businesses. Being able to have a one-pane view of the location of equipment, assets and vehicles across multiple job sites vastly improves the ability to keep projects on track and on budget – eliminating the need to chase communication with site foremen.

GPS tracking devices interact with navigation satellites that transmit signals to earth. This interaction provides real-time location data, accurate to within 100 feet – without the need for an internet connection.

When this data connects to the ABAX cloud, it gathers and analyses further intelligence such as usage, voltage, vehicle idling and driver behaviour – maximising output.
