Why Is Asset Tracking Important For Your Business?
As a business owner, you want to make sure that you have complete control over your assets. Asset trackers have become a big part of the day-to-day running of commercial businesses in the last decade, with senior figures looking to increase security measures across departments.
In this article we will discuss how asset tracking can be crucial for your business, as well as looking in more detail at our range of highly regarded covert tracking devices that have been used by hundreds of our customers and the products that can prevent loss and minimise disruption to your business, now and in the future. Read on to find out more.
What Is Asset Tracking?
Asset tracking refers to the monitoring and management of assets, such as vehicles, machinery, tools, and equipment, using technology such as the Global Positioning System (GPS). Asset tracking enables organisations and businesses to keep track of their assets, including their location, usage, maintenance, and movement, thus, improving the overall efficiency and productivity of their operations.
How Does Asset Monitoring Work?
Asset monitoring works by using technology, such as GPS, to keep track of assets and their movements. The process typically involves attaching a tracking device to the asset being monitored, such as the underside of a vehicle, or inside a package or laptop case. The device then sends real-time information on the asset’s location, usage, and movement to a central management system, such as a phone or app, which can be accessed by authorised personnel.
Some examples of valuable physical assets that would benefit from asset monitoring include:
- Car trackers for hire cars, those of high value, ambulances, taxis and other service vehicles.
- Machinery, including industrial plants and tools
- Other technological equipment
- Mobile buildings, for example caravans and portable offices
- Staff whereabouts and overall business operation efficiency

What Are The Benefits Of Asset Tracking?
Firstly, asset tracking allows for greater accuracy when monitoring assets. This is because it provides detailed information about the location, condition, and utilisation of the asset in question. This can be particularly useful for companies that have numerous assets spread out over multiple locations, for example a delivery company or a business with multiple vehicles in their fleet. By having up-to-date information on their inventory, companies can quickly identify any potential issues or problems with their assets and take steps to resolve them accordingly.
Another advantage of asset tracking is that it can help organisations reduce costs associated with lost or stolen items. Companies can track the exact location of their assets at all times, allowing them to pinpoint any missing items quickly and easily. In addition, by being able to capture data on how each asset is used, businesses can optimise their resources more effectively and make better decisions about future purchases.
Asset tracking devices can provide numerous benefits to businesses, including:
- Improved utilisation: Asset tracking helps businesses better understand how their assets are being used, and in what ways they can be utilised more efficiently.
- Increased visibility: Asset tracking systems provide real-time information on the location, condition, and movement of assets, helping businesses to keep track of their assets and reduce the risk of theft or loss.
- Increased productivity: Asset tracking helps businesses reduce downtime and increase efficiency by providing real-time information on the availability and utilisation of assets.
