MiX Telematics is introducing what it calls an “industry-first” asset tracking solution for moveable assets.
“MiX Tabs will provide customers with a highly effective solution to keep track of valuable assets including generators, light towers, storage tanks and pumps,” the company said. “This will allow for increased visibility of assets, resulting in improved asset utilization and reduced loss.”
MiX Tabs leverages company network that is formed by connecting tagged assets to vehicles equipped with MiX’s on-board computers, the company added. A customer’s fleet reports the last-known location along with a date and time stamp of the tagged assets as they pass by.
Catherine Lewis, executive vice president of technology at MiX Telematics, said: “These details are captured by our MiX Fleet Manager solution, which allows customers to view the whereabouts of assets as well as when the asset was last spotted. In addition, MiX’s reporting suite adds even further value, allowing reports to be generated from historic data to show when assets were moved from one location to another. This also helps ensure assets never go ‘missing’ and are always allocated to the correct cost center.”
“MiX Tabs is an extremely innovative and cost-effective asset tracking solution,” Lewis added. “The self-powered beacons are wireless, easy to install and last for three years or more. As global leaders in the telematics industry, we have listened to our customers’ needs and provided an industry first solution that gives them more control and oversight. This is an exciting new addition to MiX’s broad product range, and we are looking forward to harnessing the power thereof to helping our customers become more efficient.”
