All parties have an interest in extending the life of Heavy Equipment
The IoT technology demands of rental customers will be shifting dramatically as companies seek more accountability, and better asset management strategies. Manufacturers of heavy equipment will need to consider outfitting their units with at least the basic smart technologies that will become the primary differentiator from manufacturer to manufacturer. As with the auto industry, the more technology features that come standard, the more appealing the vehicle becomes to potential buyers and end-users. Because rental companies will be pressed by their clients to provide this type of technology, they will begin outfitting their own equipment with asset management, remote communications, and other satellite-enabled technologies, and eventually, will also begin seeking to purchase new equipment that is already furnished.
GSE’s asset tracking systems allows asset owners and renters the opportunity to monitor the usage of their equipment to ensure proper maintenance, monitor for misuse that could result in permanent damage, and otherwise control, disable, and manipulate their assets from anywhere at any time. Because of the use of the L-band satellite technology, GSE’s equipment can even track and control assets in remote locations where cellular and other technologies aren’t available, giving renters and owners better control over the terms of their lease agreements.
As a means 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.
When building the technology set that is best for your operation, GSE’s team of engineers has the ability to work with your existing equipment, upgrading only as necessary, in the interest of your ROI goals.We are also recognized as magnificent problem solvers, and would welcome the opportunity to help you work through a solution to any puzzle that you’re trying to solve.
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 Heavy Equipment, where stakeholders want the best technology mix.
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 business objectives, 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.
