FleetWatcher, the telematics platform from Earthwave Technologies, includes features to prevent theft and aid in equipment recovery. Its GPS technology allows users to see where any piece of equipment is at any given time, while an included proactive unauthorized use feature alerts users if equipment is started after hours. With mobile equipment, time is of the essence, and this proactive feature gives users a heads-up that the equipment was started when it shouldn’t have been and allows users to alert the police quickly. In addition, a breadcrumb feature shows the machine’s location activity in real-time and every minute if the machine is being towed, and the info is available from a browser or a mobile device. Together, these features can notify users of a theft in process so that the theft can be thwarted or that the equipment can be easily located if the heist is completed.
Earthwave Technologies manufactures construction-specific wireless telematic products that provide complete visibility to all components used within the process. In addition to its popular Fleetwatcher Material Management Solution, Earthwave Technologies also offers modules for e-ticketing, off-road construction, and more.
