Asset tracking has become more important in recent years. The prime aim for the NIBC Track Smart for Plant is simply to recover your kit if stolen, with the added benefit of being able to monitor engine hours for servicing and productivity.
The Plant Hire industry has many challenges; one of the biggest problems that have affected the construction industry over the last 10 years is plant theft. Whether you are a Construction Company hiring out equipment under CPA regulations or a Hire Company with vulnerable plant stored in the depot over the weekend, you’re very likely to have had a painful plant theft experience. According to industry statistics this costs the construction industry between £600million & £1 billion annually & has driven up the cost of insurance. The greatest risk of non-recovery is in the first 4 hrs of it being stolen - NIBC Plant will alert you immediately if there’s been any unauthorised movement, or if the unit has been tampered with.
Many plant hire companies over-service their plant because they can only estimate the total engine hours – With our engine hour counter you can exactly predict when the kit needs a service – saving wasted time & cost with unnecessary journeys.
If your overtime bill is high for your service engineers – you can check their time sheets & make sure that you are getting value for money. We know that getting your Hire Plant on site on time can be a nightmare - make sure that there is no dispute with any deliveries from your flat beds, or low loaders.
We really can offer a unique solution for the Plant Hire Industry on many materials handling equipment - whether it is for Diggers, Forklift trucks, Pallet Trucks or other Warehouse trucks or more specialist trucks e.g. Sideloaders and Tow tractors.
