8 Industry-specific Use Cases for Live Vehicle & Asset Tracking
Geopointe’s Live Vehicle & Asset Tracking is dynamic, exciting and seemingly limitless as a business tool. But, like many exciting new high-tech business solutions, it’s tough to connect the dots between the product’s impressive features and the bottom-line benefits. To bridge that gap you need specific examples to relate to your business, right? Not a problem.
Discover how Live Vehicle & Asset Tracking can produce bottom-line results with these eight industry-specific use cases:
1. Secure High-Price (or priceless) Assets
Industry: Museums, Historical Sites & Art Exhibits
$450.3 million – that’s the price for a Leonardo da Vinci painting these days. And, while no fine arts or historical artifacts are quite that exorbitantly priced, they can still cost you a pretty penny. Companies in charge of selling and delivering fine art assets to high-end clients need to take every measure to keep them safe and unscathed. And, while Live Vehicle & Asset Tracking doesn’t come with a security detail or a private jet, it can certainly help provide live updates on the location and condition of the item.
2. Improve Safety & Response Times
Industry: Emergency Response (Medical)
Live Vehicle & Asset Tracking is an ideal fit for EMS (emergency medical services) for obvious reasons. With the help of live location dispatch technicians assigning response teams in the field can now send the closest available units to incidents, prioritize patients with critical injuries, identify specific medical conditions and the hospitals with the capacity or technology to assist them, and so much more!
3. Improve Response Times & Assignment Efficiency
Industry: Automotive Assistance & Repair (Field)
Auto accidents happen without notice, and the need for swift response times is an absolute necessity for field service professionals. Luckily, Live Vehicle & Asset Tracking allows companies with immediate road response needs to react quicker than ever before. Once you have the accident location, you’ll be able to identify the closest technician in the field, then immediately assign the response to them.
4. Save Money on Wasted Product
Industry: Wholesalers (Perishable Foods)
In the produce or meat packing industry? If so, you know how much it can hurt your budget to lose even a single pallet of goods. And, without the proper warehousing and freight optimizations, you could be at risk of losing much more than one pallet. Luckily, with Live Vehicle & Asset Tracking, you can immediately track pallets that have been on the warehouse floor for too long, then sell and ship them before they go bad. You can also create automated alerts that let your sales team know the product needs to be moved.
5. Eliminate Budget-draining Driving Techniques
Industry: Postal & Delivery Services
The postal industry is always on the move, and that much movement makes it hard to analyze processes, much less optimize them. Now, with Live Vehicle & Asset Tracking, you can identify critical daily process issues – like excessive acceleration, braking or MPH (miles per hour) on specific vehicles – that can otherwise go unnoticed and slowly drain your budget.
6. Optimize Service Times
Industry: Car Rentals (Consumer)
In the car rental business, any vehicle not in service is a serious budget-drainer, and rental times can vary significantly, preventing you from tracking the mileage and condition of your cars in-person. But, with Live Vehicle & Asset Tracking, you don’t need to be on-site to stay on top of your car’s current condition. So, when the service light comes on, accidents take place or a vehicle hits a milestone for routine maintenance, you’ll be immediately alerted. What’s more, that alert can trigger an automated process you have in place!
7. Track High-budget Items
Industry: Wedding & Event Planning
With an average budget of $35,000 in 2016, weddings are full of high-priced items. As the overseer of the entire affair, wedding planners are often in charge of those precious items. If you are a wedding planner with high-end clients, building automated processes with your go-to vendors would be a game changer for your business! 
8. Automate Organizational Processes
Industry: Facility Management
The global facility management market size is expected to reach $79 billion by 2023, due in large part to cloud-based automation platforms, like Salesforce, helping to create fluid processes. Imagine a football arena transforming into a concert venue in a matter of hours – that’s automation at work. And, with custom alerts based upon real-time location data, you can see how Live Vehicle & Asset Tracking fits snuggly into that strategy.
