Transform Your Mixed Fleet Operations with Smart Technologies
Smart technologies are revolutionizing the way projects are managed and executed for job sites in a variety of industries. Embracing a seamless integration of advanced digital solutions, companies are now unlocking a new era of efficiency, productivity, and safety. From real-time asset tracking and automated equipment management to intelligent worker monitoring, this transformative use of smart technology is reshaping the job site/yard landscape, creating SmartSites.
What is a SmartSite?
A SmartSite utilizes cutting-edge technologies and sensors to manage the operations and assets on a job site or in a yard across industries, including construction, oil and gas, equipment rental, and manufacturing. SmartSite sensors can monitor both low-cost Bluetooth tags and cellular trackers, providing back-office visibility into all assets and equipment, not just ones equipped with GPS. Integrating the sensors in your yard or site is simple because the Bluetooth signals can be picked up by trackers installed in vehicles, smart phones, and no-install solar gateways. The data collected from sensors is used to streamline operations, increase productivity, reduce costs, minimize risks, and improve the overall project outcome. These sensors are easy-to-install and cost-effect, transforming manual processes of managing asset-intensive yards or sites into one uniformed machine.
Key advantages of implementing smart technologies at your location
Manual on-site inventory practices are time-consuming and prone to human error. By using GPS devices and Bluetooth tags within your job site or construction yard, you can mitigate these challenges. A SmartSite can not only confirm if the vehicle, asset, or attachment is available for use, but can help find its location. This allows you to make informed decisions by knowing which vehicles, equipment, and attachments are entering, leaving, and remaining on site.
By using the yard move status, drivers can avoid inaccurately inflating their driving time logs and only counts against your On Duty, Not Driving time.
Optimizing equipment utilization is crucial for maximizing operational efficiency and minimizing costs. Some simple SmartSite solutions can automatically sense motion, vibration, or on/off triggers to determine usage while other devices can gather sophisticated idling, fuel consumption, and diagnostic trouble code data. By analyzing asset utilization patterns, businesses can identify underutilized equipment, streamline workflows, and make informed decisions about fleet size, maintenance schedules, and resource allocation.
SmartSites use the latest and most discrete GPS trackers and Bluetooth tags making them easier to hide and harder for thieves to detect. If an asset or attachment leaves the site during an unauthorized time, you can be alerted immediately. Simple sensors are used to indicate door and gate access and cameras can be installed to record suspicious movements.
Companies with mixed fleets or asset-intensive operations are using smart technologies to revolutionize their business providing enhanced visibility into their assets and data. SmartSites use a variety of technologies, asset gateways, GPS devices, and Bluetooth tags, to streamline inventory management, reduce manual errors, improve safety conditions for workers, and maximize operational efficiency. With a SmartSite’s advanced technology, businesses gain a competitive advantage by harnessing the power of real-time data and automation in their day-to-day operations.
