Key features of powered asset tracking

Monitor your powered assets

Get real-time visibility

Identify where every powered asset has been, enhancing the security of your fleet’s vehicles and other assets. Use trace view to follow the exact geographical positions of your vehicles or machinery. Since locations are updated every five minutes1 on the asset tracking map, you can count on full visibility of your fleet.

Avoid theft with quick action

Set up designated areas for your vehicles and machinery. When your powered assets enter or leave these geofenced areas, notific­a­tions will help you act quickly when needed. You’ll also be notified if any unauthorised movements are detected. These alerts help you prevent theft and unauthorised use of company vehicles or equipment.

Stay on top of maintenance

Regular maintenance is key to keeping powered assets in productive condition. Reduce the downtime of your vehicles and machinery by setting up maintenance schedules. Staying on top of maintenance can be challenging. With Webfleet, you can create notific­a­tions based on specific parameters like mileage, engine running hours or maintenance history.

Manage asset utilisation

See how assets are being used with Webfleet’s asset card. You can also access automated reports, which provide full details on the status of assets. Quickly analyse information such as asset position, trip, maintenance and address. Do you need trailer door status or other input reports? You can view that information too.

All you need to know about powered asset tracking

What is the difference between powered assets and non-powered assets?

Jump to content

The main difference between these types of assets is whether they run on an engine. Powered assets work on engines, while non-powered assets don’t. Examples of powered assets would be vehicles and heavy construction equipment like bulldozers, scissor lifts and generators. Non-powered assets include trailers, water tanks and heavy equipment without engines.

How does a powered GPS asset tracker work?

Jump to content

Unlike non-powered asset trackers that work off replaceable batteries only, powered GPS trackers use rechargeable batteries and electricity. Another distinction between powered and non-powered devices is when they are tracking. Powered trackers record when an asset is and isn’t being used, but non-powered trackers record activity while the asset is in motion only.

What are the benefits of powered asset tracking?

Jump to content

Ensuring the security of your vehicles and machinery is one key benefit of powered asset tracking. Accurate GPS means you can constantly monitor the location and avail­ab­ility of your fleet’s engine-powered assets. Webfleet Asset Tracking also makes it easy for fleet operators to stay on top of asset condition with maintenance notific­a­tions.

How can asset tracking prevent theft?

Jump to content

Since asset tracking provides updated location information, it can help prevent theft of your vehicles or machinery. Map views show where your assets are at all times. With geofencing alerts, you’ll immediately know if an asset moves outside a predefined area, enabling you to take fast action in the case of potential theft.

When do you need a powered or non-powered asset tracker?

Jump to content

If your fleet comprises vehicles or machines with engines, you need powered asset trackers. Powered trackers constantly monitor your engine-based assets, whether they’re moving or inactive. Non-powered trackers monitor non-powered assets when they’re on the move, providing location updates every 15 minutes (or one update per day when they’re not moving).

What are the costs of a powered asset tracker?

Jump to content

Several factors influence the cost of powered asset trackers. The number of powered assets you want to install with trackers will determine price. The cost may also be set by your service contract and terms. Device, connectivity and battery options all play a role in pricing, as do subscription packages.
