The Benefits of GPS Asset Tracking

When you think about GPS asset tracking, you mostly think of devices that will give you basic location and are used as theft protection.

Depending on the industry, companies fear that GPS tracking equipment might not work best with their line of work because of the type of equipment used, or because of their remote locations. However, the perfect solution will show you that you’re able to go beyond just basic theft protection, no matter where your assets are.

AssetWorks Field Service Solutions (FSS) put together this blog to show you the benefits of GPS tracking equipment and how to go beyond theft protection.

Near or Far

Tracking your assets in the field will always be a main priority for any company. Having GPS tracking on important assets will give you the peace of mind that your assets are in good hands, wherever they are.

You have many options with GPS tracking for assets and trailers. Regardless if you have assets close by, or off in remote locations with little to no signal, there are plenty of ways to secure your assets and trailers. Here are three examples of different GPS tracking you can have for your assets:


  • Battery powered trackers can help you in remote locations
  • Capture asset run time and help you utilize better data


  • Great for on location assets that might be out of reach
  • Will usually have long battery life, so no fear of changing tracking equipment


  • Satellite based for coverage in remote areas
  • Maintenance free

No matter what type of operation you may have, there are many options out there to keep your assets and trailers safe.

Here are some examples AssetWorks FSS offers for tracking your assets and trailers in the field.

Going Beyond Theft Protection

Companies are able to utilize their vehicles, as well as their assets, more efficiently with GPS tracking. You’re able to spread out your workload more efficiently to other assets that may not get as much use. GPS tracking equipment allows you to take a closer look into how things can be better operated and see a greater ROI. Here are a few examples:

  • Eliminate unauthorized vehicle usage

The list of features you’re able to have when it comes to GPS tracking can really help you improve the data to make better decisions for your company.
