How Asset Tracking Can Help Mother Earth

 

Air pollution has garnered global attention since before anyone reading this can remember. Global warming and climate change have been so frequently discussed that many roll their eyes at the mention of it. The majority of people are aware of this issue, but don’t think they can individually make a difference.

All around the world, environmental scientists have researched what humans can do to decrease the amount of emissions polluting our planet. Small daily changes can help, but overall, it’s going to take a lot more than just recycling a Coke can!

So how do asset tracking technologies like the ones provided by Geoforce help address this universal problem?

GPS-based solutions for managing and monitoring assets are a relatively new addition to the modern world of technology. These solutions utilize the tremendous power of cloud-based software and mobile applications, global satellite and cellular connectivity, and GPS tracking devices to help companies efficiently save time, money, energy, and truthfully, our planet.

By installing tracking devices on field assets like fleet vehicles, agricultural machinery, construction equipment, generators, and other field equipment, companies help the planet by, among other things, immediately saving on fuel and operating equipment more efficiently.

Fuel Savings

Fleet vehicles that are tracked release less exhaust into the air and use less fuel. Without GPS-based vehicle tracking, drivers may inadvertently leave their engines idling while providing service on a customer’s site or spend countless hours inefficiently driving around looking for equipment or job sites. With vehicle tracking, engine idling, wasted or inefficient trips, and a host of other “harmful” things are reduced, helping companies cut back on fuel usage and emissions.

Equipment Efficiency

In addition, GPS-based track and trace solutions can monitor things like engine runtime and other key parameters, so operators can be alerted before there’s a problem with their assets. This preventative maintenance reduces unnecessary downtime or inefficient equipment operations, which means more (output) can be generated with less (energy). And that’s a win for everyone.

By using GPS-based asset tracking systems like Geoforce’s Track and Trace solutions, you can do your company and Mother Earth a favor.
