Solutions for Construction and Heavy Equipment
Build a more secure operation and protect your people and high-value assets
In the construction industry, you need to be able to assure the readiness of your heavy equipment and vehicles whenever a customer or duty calls. Meanwhile, you’re contending with continuous safety risks compounded by a lack of real-time asset location data and visibility into fleet operations — along with rising operational costs, compliance challenges, and more. This makes profitably growing your business and gaining an edge on competitors a high-wire act that many construction businesses find daunting.
However, imagine a platform that ingests and harmonizes data from every vehicle, asset, and person in your fleet — providing everything you need to maximize safety, productivity, operational efficiency, sustainability, risk mitigation, and more.
That’s exactly what you’ll find in Powerfleet’s Unity fleet intelligence platform, where you can access real-world, decision-grade insights to help you:
Not knowing how many hours your equipment is being used can lead to unplanned downtime, increased rentals, and soaring business costs. Further, being at the mercy of your OEM maintenance schedules can lead to under or over servicing your assets and incurring additional costs.
With Powerfleet’s equipment usage data, you can perform proactive and preventative maintenance based on actual usage instead of arbitrary schedules. By avoiding unnecessary servicing while ensuring you never miss an important maintenance event, you can increase utilization, decrease costs, and raise customer satisfaction.
Between the cranes, excavators, bulldozers, and other asset types in your mixed fleet, knowing their location at all times is a crucial concern. Without the ability to track your assets, you don’t know what equipment is available and when, which puts your customer-service quality at risk.
Our state-of-the-art fleet tracking technology empowers you with 24/7 visibility into equipment and vehicle location, so you always know where your assets are and when they are available to use. This can help you confirm that equipment is promptly returned when rental contracts end, and help you accurately schedule new contracts.
Your heavy equipment is expensive. Losses from construction site theft can total up to $1 billion annually, with less than 25% of stolen construction materials ever recovered. Theft of your assets can have severe repercussions such as decreases in overall asset value, project delays, and more.
Thanks to Powerfleet’s advanced fleet tracking capabilities, accurate location information, real-time push alerts, and remote equipment lockdown features, you are far better equipped to prevent theft and achieve faster asset recovery if theft occurs.
Not being able to monitor your drivers’ behavior or understand what events are causing accidents in your fleet can pose significant danger to your vehicles and your drivers.
We provide a clear view into your drivers’ behavior so you can improve driver coaching, address risky behaviors, reduce accidents, and avoid litigation while proactively mapping high-risk areas and activities to prevent future incidents.
Fuel is usually a fleet’s largest operating cost. Without real-world insights into fuel consumption and potential fraud, it’s impossible to optimize fuel efficiency — which negatively impacts your bottom line.
Powerfleet offers cost-saving insights by monitoring fuel consumption trends, gas-filling at specific gas stations, and sudden drops in fuel tanks. This can help you achieve greater fuel efficiency across your fleet and reduce fraud.
Managing compliance with IFTA and other regulations can be difficult. When checklists and monitoring are done manually — in writing or verbally — it can lead to errors and potential penalties and litigation.
Let us simplify your compliance efforts by automating accurate data collection and reporting. This can help you adhere to regulatory requirements, proactively address compliance issues, and reduce the risk of penalties and litigation.
As government regulations continue to mandate an advancement toward ESG reporting and fleet electrification, knowing where to start can be the hardest part.
With Powerfleet, you get a full picture of your fleet’s fuel efficiency, carbon emissions, and opportunities for more eco-friendly driving practices. You can also view vehicle data including age, miles per gallon, and more to make informed decisions on which vehicles to move to electric.
Manually gathering, monitoring, and interpreting data from an array of different systems results in incomplete insights, biased decisions, and operational inefficiencies.
Our OEM-agnostic platform, Unity, takes on the heavy lifting by ingesting data from all your disconnected data sources, including IoT devices, 3rd party devices, OEMs, and business systems. Unity transforms this data into real-world, decision-grade insights so you can make more informed decisions.
Comprehensive theft recovery: Swiftly respond to theft with accurate, real-time asset location, instant alerts, high-frequency reporting, and after-hours movement tracking to ensure quick and successful asset recovery.
Proactive driver safety measures: Gain real-time insights on driver behavior and history, such as speed, impacts, driver fatigue, and more. Develop driver scorecards and proactively coach drivers to increase safety.
In-depth accident reconstruction: Use video and analytical data to comprehensively understand what happened before, during, and after an accident. Leverage forensic data to help improve coaching, reduce litigation risks, and exonerate drivers who are not at fault.
Use Unity’s livestream data to monitor driver behavior and enhance driver coaching to reduce accidents and fuel costs; and use vehicle location insights to protect your assets.
Reduce downtime and manage your maintenance operations based on real-time, real-world usage and history to ensure you don’t overspend and can extend the life of your resources.
With Unity, you can view your fleet operations through a single pane of glass to help uncover inefficiencies, streamline operations, and boost productivity.
Happy customers are the lifeblood of a successful business. We can help you more effectively plan, allocate, and utilize resources to meet and exceed customer expectations.
