Wireless hour meter with GPS location tracking

Access Control Group (Access) offers the VITAL, a web based hour meter tracking system to capture up to four types of hour meter readings. It can even shut off equipment engines if idling to save fuel costs and improve air quality. It can also track physical location by GPS which lets fleet managers know how many assets are at each location as well as how many are being used.

Since hour meter reading is the heart of mobile asset management, facility and fleet managers can use Vital for data-driven decisions for increased productivity, improved utilization and lower total cost of operations.  Fleet maintenance planning is often based on hour meter readings which require collecting readings on scattered fleet.  It is expensive, time consuming yet inaccurate and still needs manual entry into businesses’ fleet management systems.  When technicians are scarce, they should be performing repairs and not chase their fleet to read hour meters. 

Vital is one of Access’s several telematics solutions to manage equipment, batteries and chargers all supported by AssetPro 360.  AssetPro 360 is an end-to-end cloud platform that empowers asset owners (of virtually any powered equipment) for lifecycle management and optimization.  The platform can be integrated with the clients’ ERP (such as SAP), CMMS (such as EBIS), EAM and WMS and can offer unprecedented visibility across the enterprise so informed decisions can be made, proactively.  The advanced telematics, price-to-performance ratio, 2-year warranty, and the flexibility to pay only for the functions needed offers clients compelling solutions.
