The digital economy continues to grow, and many industries have shifted from paper-based systems to wireless technology. This shift has had a significant impact on asset tracking solutions. One of the changes has come from the increase in mobile devices. Through mobile asset tracking, companies can track the condition of assets, equipment, and personnel while on the go. The rise of mobile asset tracking has allowed companies to experience greater efficiency and ROI.

Is Mobile Asset Tracking Important?

How are businesses using mobile devices for asset tracking?Mobile asset tracking is the process of monitoring and tracking the assets used in a business. This process tracks and records data, such as location and condition, and allows operators to make more informed business decisions. Since asset tracking typically operates on mobile devices, maintenance workers can better manage machinery used in manufacturing without being present in the workplace.

Maintenance: Preventive or Predictive?

The typical maintenance strategy companies incorporate is called preventive maintenance. Preventive maintenance involves following a routine maintenance schedule for repairs. However, maintenance procedures are changing. As a result of mobile asset tracking, companies can now incorporate predictive maintenance into daily workflows. Predictive maintenance involves tracking the usage and condition of equipment and servicing it before the equipment fails. Malfunctioning equipment can halt production. These breakdowns result in the loss of millions of dollars for businesses. Predictive maintenance helps keep companies updated on the condition of their equipment to avoid future issues. Maintenance workers will be able to replace failing or faulty equipment before any issues occur.
