What are the benefits of plant and equipment tracking?

Plant machinery can be expensive and is a prime target for criminals. A GPS tracking device can provide an additional layer of protection and security, offer peace of mind and even lower insurance premiums. Plant theft costs the construction industry £800m a year, can you afford to take the risk? Here are just some of the benefits that come with our plant tracking offering: 

Receive theft alerts

With live positional updates every 60 seconds on our wired tool tracking devices, have peace of mind that ABAX is on duty around the clock. If you opt for a wireless tool tracking device, you’ll receive updates every 4, 6, 12 or 24 hours depending on how closely you wish to monitor your equipment. For extra security against theft, you can also create virtual geofences and receive an SMS alert if any unit is tampered with or leaves an area unauthorised.

Easy to Install

Our easy to install, robust and discreet GPS plant tracking solution comes with a Lifetime Warranty and 24/7 support as standard. There are no hidden costs and you fit the unit yourself. Our tracking units are also IP69 compliant.

Active Tracking

If your machinery has power, our wired hardware can monitor engine hours and help to eliminate downtime through predictive maintenance, reports and alerts. Our plant and tool tracking device doesn’t clock off, with a roaming SIM card you’ll be able to check in on your equipment’s position at any time of day. Plus, you have a stronger chance of recovering those stolen assets instead of having to immediately replace them.

Increases security

Criminals are less likely to take tools and equipment with a tool tracking device installed, as this increases their chances of being caught. Setting up an geofence will even give you a warning when your assets are on the move.

Log usage

Plant machinery and equipment tracking is more than live location and theft recovery. With a tracking device comes data that can also increase efficiency and lower costs by providing historical reports, servicing alerts direct to your mobile and predictive maintenance based on engine hours.

Accurate tracking and no map freezes

There will be no delays when you wish to check in on the location of your tools and equipment. ABAX tool tracking devices automatically connect to the strongest signal available to ensure your service isn’t disrupted.

Track using you smartphone

If you’re always on the go, it’s good to know that everything can be managed via your smartphone. Whether you prefer to use your smartphone or tablet, you can monitor where your equipment is in real-time even if you don’t have access to a computer.

What can be covered by a plant and
tool tracking device? 

Plant machinery 

Ensure your plant machinery is used correctly and remains on-site with a plant tracking device. Install the device on anything from forklifts to excavators and ensure you’re always covered. You can also monitor usage hours and improve efficiency across the site. 


Ensure trailers aren’t sitting idle or are misplaced with one of our tracking devices. You can also use your tracking unit to increase its protection against theft and also to produce digital delivery trails that can improve your business’s environmental standards, as you reduce the need for manual paperwork. 

Equipment and tools 

With small tool tracking software, you’ll know exactly where those important and expensive pieces of equipment are at all times. From drills to saws, you can also ensure these are stored correctly and only used at agreed hours. Our tool tracking device is discreet and secure and won’t get in the way of the work being carried out, plus it can be easily installed yourself and monitored while on the go via the supporting app.
