What are the benefits of using tracking to prevent against plant theft?

✔ SMS Notifications  ✔ Anti-tamper protection  ✔ Lower insurance premiums  ✔ Customisable geofences

Plant machinery is often expensive and a prime target of theft. 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, with over 90% of stolen plant never being recovered - can you afford to take the risk?
