Having accurate and actionable data can save money and increase site safety
GSE’s asset tracking systems allow you the opportunity to monitor the usage of your equipment to ensure proper maintenance, monitor for misuse that could result in permanent damage, and otherwise control, disable, and manipulate your assets from anywhere at any time. Because of the use of the L-band satellite technology, GSE’s equipment can even track and control your assets in remote locations where cellular and other technologies aren’t available, giving you better control over the terms of your lease agreements.
As a way of providing peace of mind for the users as well, this same technology can be used to alert stakeholders remotely and on site (such as a foreman) of a potential safety issue with the equipment, of repeatedly destabilizing or unsafe usage, or of impending maintenance needs. This level of equipment interfacing helps avoid unnecessary delays in projects, can help asset owners understand what “normal” use and maintenance needs will be.
Further, the future of construction will require the integration of smart technology all the way to the infrastructure of the buildings, from sensor installations to preconfiguration of structures for end-user smart products. Simulating the functionality, testing, and installing the building-level smart ecosystem will require new skill sets and a more diversified group of workers. Being able to work and manage this type of project remotely with a system that is familiar to your organization will be essential, and is among the possibilities GSE’s team of engineers can provide for you in your custom solution.
L-band satellite transmission capabilities vary across different industries and sectors within those industries, but are most commonly geared toward solutions involving geo-tracking or sensory reporting at regular intervals. Because L-band technology operates at the lower end of the frequency spectrum, these smaller data packets travel more efficiently, allowing for real-time transmission and globally-supported satellite coverage.
Satellite technology is among the few equipment and facilities categories that gets constant attention, and the reasons for that are manifold. Primarily, it is quite normal for satellite technologies to have strong ROI, often because they can automate systems and processes that otherwise require extensive man hours and maintenance of existing equipment currently employed to perform the task. These cost savings add up quickly, and can easily justify the budget decision in a matter of a few short years.
Internet Of Things Creates Actionable Data
Perhaps impossible to ignore is everyone’s increasing obsession with Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, and how they can apply to one’s commercial sector, even in the most fringe of capacities. While it is certain that a large amount of the advancements in technology can have measurable and significant effects on efficiency, accountability, and reliability, it is also eventually going to be the case that a number of these “must-have innovations” will become decorative bells and whistles that fail to contribute sufficient return on investment. Making smart decisions about how to invest in these new technologies is critically important, especially in a sector like Construction, where safety is a major factor.
Leverage Our Expertise For Your Business Growth
GSE’s team of engineers and solution architects are perfectly prepared to assist in the creation of a technology set that actually meets your individual needs by amalgamating only the tools that help you achieve the goals you have for improvement of processes and output. While GSE has the ability to work with all of the available bells and whistles mentioned above, we know that less is almost always more when it comes to Construction, and we know how to get from your desired outcome to a lean solution set specifically designed to achieve that goal. GSE engineers also emphasize ease of use, integration with existing equipment and technology whenever possible, and streamlined, replicable implementations, with support.
Making smart decisions about which of these technologies is best for your operation can be extraordinarily difficult, especially because of the influx of availability, and the pressure to make allotments only for those enhancements that will have strong ROI. As a technology partner, GSE will work directly with you to outline the opportunities available to achieve your goals, and we always emphasize the use of existing equipment wherever possible, as the majority of our solutions integrate with technology that has been on the market for quite some time.
