Into the Clouds:

A Guide to Protecting Construction Assets

Back to Blog

Did you know, that according to the Ontario Provincial Police approximately $46 million of construction equipment is stolen across Canada every year?  The construction industry faces equipment theft, including heavy equipment, lumber, unpowered, and powered assets.

Shockingly, less than 25% of stolen construction materials are ever recovered. Theft at construction sites can seriously harm your business by disrupting projects and schedules creating unnecessary expenses to replace materials. 

So, what’s the solution? Being proactive is the best protective measure. A trustworthy suite of hardware and software to track and monitor your assets anytime and anywhere. Here’s a breakdown of what you need to protect the equipment and assets on your job sites using telematics and IoT solutions: 

GPS Trackers

Visibility is key to tracking and monitoring your critical resources. Using a GPS tracker allows you to monitor the location of all heavy construction equipment, with real-time visibility in the palm of your hand. Not only does real-time tracking give you complete control over asset location, but it can also help with recovery, equipment utilization, safety, and cost savings.

IoT Sensors

Attaching robust, compact IoT sensors maximizes your real-time asset visibility.

Engine sensors allow you to monitor the run time of your equipment so you know immediately when unauthorized use occurs. Engine sensors also notify you if equipment or assets are powered on but not moving over a selected time period. Monitoring and receiving real-time alerts will enable your team to act quickly and address unexpected conditions.

Gain real-time visibility of all your assets in one place.

To maximize benefits, your compact tracking devices should be easy to hide and sturdy enough to withstand any environmental conditions. This includes being waterproof and, well, basically zombie-proof!
