Teletrac Navman, a California-based software-as-a-service provider that leverages location-based technology and services for managing mobile assets, has announced an IoT-enabled asset tracker.
The ATS1 is a battery-powered asset tracker that uses 4G so managers can track, view and manage non-mobile assets common on construction and other work sites such as pumps, trailers, fans and cleaning equipment.
"Our ATS1 device is unique because it is designed for equipment that doesn't ordinarily come with a telematics or tracking device from the OEM, but is equally critical to running an efficient business from project to project," said Daren Lauda, vice president of Teletrac Navman. "The new product can be used on its own or as an add-on to our Director fleet management software so managers can see all their assets' whereabouts all in one place. What's more, our ATS product uses a global IoT band, ensuring the units perform better over a longer range, with better signals in spaces where they may not have a direct line of sight to the sky."
Features include:

  • Long lasting and rugged: The self-install comes with three to five years of battery life.
  • IP67 certified: Confirms the device is dust tight and protected against immersion in water.
  • Easy to self-install: Straightforward installation process helps managers get up and running without delay.
  • Theft prevention: Automated unauthorised movement alerts and the ability to switch from locate to track mode over the air help managers increase their asset recovery rate, saving money and time.
With products that deliver visibility into real-time insights and analytics, Teletrac Navman says it helps companies make better business decisions that enhance productivity and profitability. Its fleet and asset management technology uncovers information that would otherwise go unseen, helping its customers reduce risk and move their business forward.
It tracks and manages more than 500,000 vehicles and assets for more than 40,000 companies around the world. The company is headquartered in Garden Grove, California, with additional offices in the USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand and Mexico.
