WHAT IS PLANT MANAGEMENT?
Plant Management is the security and diagnostic solution for machinery and plant equipment. Through utilising an intelligent telematics device all aspects of usage, such as, time spent on site, alerts if an asset leaves a predefined area and hours until the next service can be monitored and tracked.
The telematics device used within plant management uses powerful antennas and accelerometers to ensure that the most accurate information regarding the equipment is available. This includes the exact location (including off road) to within five metres and whether a unit has been disconnected or tampered with. All of these components are housed in a tough enclosure that is impervious to all weather conditions, making it the perfect device for outdoor machinery.
WHAT WILL PLANT MANAGEMENT DO FOR YOU?
Geofenced points of interest can be created via the online tracking portal. These ensure assets are kept within a predefined area thus streamlining administration and increasing invoicing accuracy if necessary. This real time visibility of assets gives peace of mind to both the owner and operator about health, status and location. Plant Managment therefore ensures that not only is plant or machinery kept safe, its usage is optimised. Even if the equipment is not in use, (perhaps over a weekend), the telematics will still send a daily “heartbeat” message to the server, confirming the unit is working as it should.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PLANT MANAGEMENT?
- Minimise equipment downtime using remote diagnostic displays through service maintenance reports. This preventative maintenance feature highlights when assets require servicing or if any fault codes have appeared.
- Increase productivity through machine utilisation reports. The report displays the running hours of any vehicle on any site, enabling the Operator to see which machines have been utilised more efficiently than others.
- Deterring theft and preventing the misuse of plant and equipment through remote immobilisation of off highway plant or machinery over the air using the GSM/GPRS network. This ensures assets cannot be used without authorisation and will aid with recovery if stolen.
