Making business more manageable and more sustainable
for a construction equipment rental company
Innodisk, with subsidiary Antzer, delivered a capable security solution that made it easy for the client to stay on top of all their equipment, reducing costs and increasing efficiency.
This case describes a construction equipment company that provides mobile lighting equipment for construction sites on a rental basis, and typically until construction finishes.
The company’s original portable lighting towers are powered by diesel engines that cause noise and pollution, and the company is planning to upgrade the generators with solar panels, and built-in batteries to power LED lighting. As part of the upgrade, the company is also vying solutions that allow remote management and improved security.
With Antzer’s GPS and cellular tracker installed, geofencing is available, which allowed the client to define an activity zone for each portable lighting tower. When the equipment is moved out of its designated zone, the tracking unit automatically sends an alert to the control center. Further, the upgraded equipment’s sensors made it easy for the rental company to remotely manage the equipment and stay vigilant to any unauthorized attempts to tamper with the hardware.
We at Innodisk believe that through cooperation, we can overcome any challenge. By maintaining an active line of communication from inquiry to implementation, we ensure a tailor-made solution that fits your application. We are committed to innovation with our continual focus on hardware, firmware, and software integration.
