Connected fleet technology firm Azuga has launched a tracker to provide real-time visibility of assets. The system incorporates purpose-built asset tracking devices that integrate with the California company’s cloud-based application for real-time monitoring and operations management, simplifying delivery, service, recovery and billing for assets deployed in the field.
 
For businesses where vehicle fleets and assets play a key role in operations including transportation, construction and rental equipment providers, combining asset tracking with fleet monitoring adds a layer of reporting and control to fleet and field operations.
 
“Azuga Asset Tracker gives businesses the data they need to efficiently manage assets, save time and money and help deliver the best service possible,” said Ananth Rani, Azuga’s founder and CEO. “In combination with data science, this device gives our customers the enterprise-grade, one-stop solution they need to maximise visibility across their workers, vehicles and assets.”
 
There are two devices for different use cases – a long life version and a rechargeable one. The long-life asset-tracking device is ruggedised and weather-proof with a battery life of up to five years at one location ping per day and suitable for long deployments on non-powered assets such as containers, trailers, tanks and portable toilets.
 
The six-month rechargeable asset-tracking hardware is weather-proof and can be connected to 12 or 24V power sources, and best used for tracking powered assets that may sit in an off position for periods of time, such as generators, powered signs and portable lights.
 
Azuga provides end-to-end systems for commercial fleets, government agencies, insurance companies and automotive industry suppliers, through hardware technology, the Azuga One platform, fleet applications and data science.
