Construction, Mining & Agriculture

Maintaining heavy equipment health and reliability

Construction, Mining & Agriculture Solution

Rugged terrain, exposed environments and remote locations are all characteristics of construction, mining and agriculture sites. Add to this heavy machinery; deadlines; long work hours; and strict regulations, making it necessary to ensure the safe and smooth running of work sites. In addition, these industries often rent equipment such as generators, cranes, tractors and elevators and require tools to remotely monitor how equipment is used and the health of their equipment including the time of use which enables them to verify adherence to contractual obligations. The other side of that coin is that it protects the renter, from liability stemming from contractual abuse, infringement, and careless use of equipment.
Pointer provides you with the tools that make daily operations more efficient, secure and safer. Helping you to eliminate as much potential for human error, have continuous monitoring and have complete transparency into what is happening, for every vehicle and piece of equipment, at all times. Tools that make sense of all of the incoming data and enabling you to make the right decisions.

Securing heavy equipment

Despite not being readily movable, heavy equipment and machinery are still susceptible to theft. Trucks, earthmovers, paving equipment, dumpsters, generators, and machinery – often left for long periods on construction sites – are expensive to replace and, if stolen, can significantly interrupt progress on multi-million-dollar projects: in turn, this can lead to severe financial consequences for many construction companies. Pointer solution enabling real-time tracking and movement detection of stationary heavy equipment can effectively halt thefts in progress and greatly increase recovery rates of stolen equipment.

Effective management of rented equipment

The logistics and maintenance of rented equipment is often challenging, primarily because rental companies have no information about how their rented equipment or assets are treated once they leave their premises and are handed over to the customer.
Pointer enables effective management of rented equipment including automated, real-time monitoring of operating hours; remote; dynamic configuration of parameters; delivery of performance reports according to contractual obligations; alerts in the event of malfunctioning, such as overheating or if fuel level reaches low thresholds. Companies utilizing our solution can greatly reduce any potential financial losses caused by the difficulty in tracking valuable equipment.
