Expanding Fire Department Needs Asset Tracking 

When your company is in growth spurt, it is vital you have all your ducks in a row. You shouldn’t have to worry about the small operational functions or minute system arrangements – these should be squared away and ready only for minor adjustments.

In any business context, time equates to money, so it’s only sensible for companies to proactively address the time wasted on various operations. However in a different context, say the fire and rescue sector, the public’s safety could be on the line.

For an expanding fire department, that maintains a fleet of vehicles, standard issue gear, medical equipment, and mobile IT items, their tracking system lied in a state of emergency, and they needed an efficient tracking system to have them ready for the next call. In addition, they plan to add more to their existing list of equipment and vehicles, but could not see beyond their current auditing storm.

Asset Tfracking By The NumbersManaging Growth & Efficiency 

Individuals in charge of audits and tracking the movement and assignment of assets found the primitive Excel method too stressful. The process was proving to falter under their recent expansions, and the fire department needed to change paths to prepare for expansion.

To match their growth, the team wished to have live feeds for item replacement and repairs. Finding a way to promptly update the maintenance crew would save them time waiting for equipment. And with the development of the department, they needed to maintain and improve the operational efficiency, as they were hiring new employees at new locations.

The “funding” feature within Wasp Mobile Asset gave a financial perspective to the assets they were tracking and investing in.
