How Does Azuga Asset Tracker™ Work?
When you attach Azuga’s asset trackers to your assets, you’re able to see them on a live map along with the locations of your vehicles. Assets and vehicles can be divided into separate groups, or you can group together specific sets vehicles and assets based on type or geography. In real-time, you’ll be able to locate all of your assets and give easy instructions to drivers on how to reach them, whether or not they been moved since your initially delivery. Reports make it easy to validate asset service cycles, and also provide detailed data on locations assets were used over a period of time
One of our first Asset Tracker customers, a large portable restroom operator, has calculated costs of recovering an incorrect unit at $150 per incident, which happens when they can’t identify a unit’s specific location or they recover another unit by mistake. Adding Asset Tracker to their Azuga Fleet deployment gives them a single dashboard to ensure they can efficiently locate and service correct units, saving them significant costs and improving asset utilization.
