A-Plant's A-Track GPS tracking system - supplied by Enigma Vehicle Systems - located a stolen excavator in Germany, where it was recovered.

UK rental company A-Plant is teaming up with Enigma Vehicle Systems at the CETA Technology Showcase, taking place October 3-4 at Newbury Racecourse.

The rental firm is partnering with security specialists Enigma to showcase the A-Trak system – a GPRS tracking system fitted to A-Plant equipment which offers protection from theft as well as being a complete fleet management tool able to provide data relating to CO2 emissions, utilisation rates and the movement of equipment on hire.

The A-Trak system allows customers to review the efficiency of hired equipment, compare contracts against each other and assess if they have the right amount of equipment on site. Reports can be generated showing if machines have been over or under utilised and stop time reports can be provided so customers can assess the amount of time lapsed between the use of equipment.

Visitors to the A-Plant/Enigma stand at the CETA Technology Showcase will also be able to see live demonstrations of the A-Plant iPhone App, which enables A-Plant customers to manage their rental process online.

The CETA Technology Showcase, organized by the Construction Equipment Technology Alliance (CETA), will showcase the latest developments in construction machinery and site layout measurement and control including the use of GPS, laser systems, total stations, Building Information Modelling and CAD/CAM systems. Safety and security systems, weighing and measurement systems, data acquisition systems, and products and solutions that reduce energy consumption, fuel consumption and the production of emissions, will also be exhibited at the two-day event.
