Effective asset management is a crucial part of improving your operational efficiency. Utilising an asset tracking solution that helps monitor your tools and equipment both on and off-site can be highly beneficial for your business – no matter your size.
So, if you’ve ordered your EROAD tags, it’s time to put them to good use.
With EROAD Tags, you can say goodbye to the traditional and often tedious methods of monitoring and managing your assets in just five simple steps. Your small to medium assets will be tagged and traced automatically, improving your efficiency and reducing the costs of replacing lost or stolen equipment.
In this article, we’ll take you through the steps you need to take to get your EROAD Tags up and running.
What are the essential components of the EROAD Where Asset Management System?
An efficient Asset Management System effectively automates and streamlines your asset tracking and allows you to manage and improve the overall operational performance of your business. That’s exactly what EROAD does, and why you ordered the tags.
Your EROAD Where Asset Management System has two main components:
1. The software platform
2. Bluetooth® asset tags
These two components synchronise with each other and allow you to manage your small to medium assets effectively. Once you’ve got both, you’re ready to start setting up and customising your very own asset management system.
Setting up your EROAD Where Tags:
To prepare your EROAD Where Tags for use, simply follow these steps:
Start by uploading a complete list of all your small to medium assets into the system. If you have an existing list of your tools and equipment, you can simply organise this into an Excel sheet or CSV file and upload it straight into your system. You can then edit and update this file easily as you acquire additional assets or upgrade existing ones.2. Assign tags to assets using the app.
Once your assets are entered into your software, you can assign tags to each asset to make sure that each tag corresponds to a specific item. This way, you can accurately manage all your tools and equipment.3. Create geofences for monitoring.
After assigning your tags, you may now create geofences to establish boundaries for your assets and receive notifications as they move around. Your assets can be monitored at any time using the EROAD Where desktop platform or the iOS and Android mobile apps.4. Assign assets to a vehicle or a depot.
The next thing that you need to do is to assign your assets to their corresponding vehicle, job site or depot. This will allow you to identify which location to attend should you need to check on a specific asset.5. Report usage on sites.
To keep your records accurate and your assets accounted for, make sure to report the usage and movement of all assets at each site using the EROAD Where software. This will also help to improve your asset utilisation.
