We’ve been there. We’ve lost parts, had them stolen, misplaced them so that we had to rent or order more. We’ve had heavy equipment break down mid-operation due to infrequent maintenance and lost time on the project schedule to accommodate repairs. We’ve sacrificed margin on our jobs after blowing our small tools budget. We feel your frustrations, and we agree the time is now to get this under control.
But where to begin? What is RFID, and how can it help me monitor my inventory? How does fleet tracking work differently than small tool tracking? What equipment is better suited with a GPS tracker versus a Bluetooth tracker? What is LoRaWAN, and do I have jobsites that would benefit from this?
So many asset tracking options are presently on the market and if you are not necessarily technologically-savvy, you might be intimidated by these varieties.
Likewise, you may simply lack the time to do a deep dive into researching these technologies, how they work, and how they would be useful to you.
To simplify this process, we’ve prepared a guide to asset tracking technologies to help compare available options in one place. We cover short definitions on technologies and how they work – including QR, RFID, Bluetooth, Cellular GPS and LoRaWAN – as well as what technology is the best fit for tracking different types of asset classes.
