Heavy Equipment Management
The ability to monitor heavy equipment minimizes equipment failure and reduces downtime and maintenance costs.
Many construction and infrastructure projects such as road and bridge building are located in remote regions where only satellite communication equipped GPS tracking systems are useful. It is the same scenario for mining operations in remote areas. By combining GPS fleet tracking and two-way satellite communications, SilverStar vastly improves the productivity of heavy construction equipment operations.
Through GPS monitoring of construction equipment, you know where and how your equipment is being used. You know immediately if equipment moves outside of a pre-defined area through a digital "geo- fence". Location information also helps you deploy equipment and workforce resources more efficiently.
Higher customer satisfaction and improved safety have become important factors in today's world when bidding for new projects.

Fuel consumption is one of the largest expenses in the operation of heavy equipment. Lower fuel costs can be achieved by a combination of speed control, idle time reduction and elimination of unauthorized use, whether after hours or during work hours. Even though vehicles are not typically traveling very fast, speeding is still an issue when out of work areas.
Cost savings through more efficient use of human resources is also meaningful in the Construction and Mining industries. Unauthorized or unexpected overtime billing and misuse of working time can be detected and eliminated by comparing location and work status. Falsified overtime is identified, prevented and job costs get reduced.
