Locate your valuable assets

Webfleet's detailed asset tracking map means you can see exactly where your assets are. If your trailers or powered equipment is not on-site, you’ll be able to locate them quickly.

Instant alerts help prevent theft

Webfleet lets you know when your asset’s status changes. For example, if it enters or leaves a defined area or if an unauthorised movement is detected, you get a notific­ation. Do you need to check on asset status when you’re away from your office? If you use the Webfleet Mobile app, you can stay on top of your fleet’s business and your asset locations with your mobile phone.

Maintain your assets’ condition

Schedule and manage maintenance tasks to keep your assets in good condition. By staying on top of asset maintenance, you can avoid unexpected downtime and business losses. Set up notific­a­tions based on odometer, engine hours or the amount of time that has passed since the last prevent­ative maintenance was scheduled.

Know how your assets are being used

Either use Webfleet’s asset card for a quick overview or view automated reports regarding your assets’ statuses, including current position, trip, maintenance, address, location and input reports (e.g. trailer door status). Webfleet displays the location and status of every trailer, powered asset2 and vehicle in your fleet on one interface. You can essentially manage your whole operation with asset tracking.

Couple your asset and vehicle

If your vehicle is also equipped with a LINK tracking device, the coupled asset information is displayed automat­ically on the map for both vehicles and assets. You can easily identify which asset is connected to which vehicle. This simplifies your utilisation management, as you can immediately see which assets are still available.

All you need to know about asset tracking

What is asset tracking?

Jump to content

Asset tracking is the process of monitoring and keeping track of the exact location, status, position and other relevant information of your company's assets. Assets can be defined depending on your business, which can be anything from equipment and tools to IT devices and vehicles. Asset management is another commonly used term for asset tracking. A telematics solution digitises the process with functions like GPS positioning and utilisation reporting, enabling you to maintain visibility over your valuable assets.

What is the difference between asset tracking and asset management?

Jump to content

Asset tracking and asset management are both important aspects of fleet operations, although they serve different purposes. Asset Tracking refers to the process of monitoring an asset's location and status in real time, while asset management involves the strategic planning and decision making surrounding the entire lifecycle of an asset. Effective asset tracking helps improve asset management by providing accurate, updated information about an asset's location and usage. This information helps fleet operators make informed decisions about asset maintenance, utilisation and replacement.

What assets should be tracked?

Jump to content

Your organ­isation's assets may include a variety of tools, equipment, vehicles and IT systems. Assets of high value should be monitored and tracked, as damage or theft of them can be costly and disruptive to your business. With telematics, you can keep your assets in good working order with maintenance notific­a­tions. You can also prevent theft via geofencing alerts.

Who can use asset tracking?

Jump to content

A wide range of industries can benefit from asset tracking. Construction can keep track of equipment and heavy machinery across sites. Transport and profes­sional services companies can keep track of trailers alongside trucks, and manage how they are utilised.

Healthcare providers can keep track of medical equipment, and educational insti­tu­tions can use it for laboratory equipment to ensure it stays on campus.

Why is asset tracking important?

Jump to content

If you have complete visibility over your assets, you can achieve two goals: save time and money. You can gain valuable insights into how assets are used (who, when, where, how) as well as about maintenance schedules, need for new equipment and theft prevention. All this invaluable data can be used to analyse your operation and support decision making, therefore, improving efficiency by maximising asset utilisation rates.

How does asset tracking work?

Jump to content

There is a range of methods to track assets either digitally or manually. Some companies prefer pen and paper while others prefer to use Excel. But the most effective and efficient way to monitor and track the utilisation of your company assets is with asset tracking software. Some asset tracking solutions offer mobile applic­a­tions and scannable asset tags. Mobile allows you to easily track assets on the go. The tags help you identify assets and bridge the physical items with their information in the database. There are many options for tags including barcodes, QR codes and RFID tags. RFID tags allow fleet managers to identify drivers and which vehicles they use.

What is asset tracking software?

Jump to content

Asset tracking software uses GPS to determine the position of assets. It connects the location of your assets with software that collects asset data. Some features include geofencing, which uses GPS to define geographical boundaries. This is an important feature that can protect your assets from theft and unauthorised usage. Further, track and trace features can determine not only the current location of an asset but also historical locations of assets, which is useful for asset management and improving the utilisation of assets.
