What Is An Asset Tracking System?

Put simply, an asset tracking system is a way of managing and monitoring an individual’s or company’s valuable fixed or mobile assets. GTC has its own bespoke asset tracking system, GTCTrack.

Asset tracking systems exist as online portals that people can create accounts on. From there, users register their satellite asset tracking device, mount it on the asset they wish to track (if they haven’t done so already) and begin monitoring the status and whereabouts of the asset or assets.

In What Ways Do They Work?

By being accessible online it means users can log in to their asset tracking account from anywhere in the world. One of the key benefits of an online asset tracking systems such as GTCTrack is that it can communicate across distances and keep accurate, up-to-date logs for everyone using it.

There are also smartphone tracking and vehicle tracking devices, and they can also be hardwired into a large piece of equipment or machinery. Users can then set up geofencing alerts so they can keep track of their larger items. If their tracked assets go beyond the set digital boundary, the user will be notified immediately.

GPS asset tracking software also lets people keep everything on one, easy-to-use dashboard. Fleet management systems can be simplified with a GPS asset tracking system.
