FleetWatcher, a telematics platform from Earthwave Technologies, now includes features to prevent theft and aid in equipment recovery. The platform's GPS technology allows users to see where any piece of equipment is at any given time, while an included proactive Unauthorized Use feature alerts user if equipment is started after hours.
This proactive feature gives users a heads up that the equipment was started when it shouldn’t have and allows users to alert the police. In addition, a breadcrumb feature shows the machine’s location activity in real-time and every minute if the machine is being towed. The information is available from a browser or a mobile device. Together, these features can notify users of a theft in process so that the theft can be thwarted or that the equipment can be located if the heist is completed.
