Succorfish to launch construction tracking division
By Sarah Ann McCay30 September 2012
UK-based Succorfish is to launch a construction division offering tracking products tailored to the needs of plant managers.
The announcement follows increased demands from the industry to find a solution to organised plant theft, asset management and rising insurance costs.
The UK provider of global tracking systems is now developing a tracking product specifically designed for construction and equipment rental applications.
The company said its first product, Succorfish SC1, was originally designed for defence applications so is suited to harsh and challenging environments, making it ideal for tracking plant machinery in difficult terrain, such as open cast quarries or remote forestry.
The SC1 system uses GPS satellite technology to monitor mobile assets to within 2 m worldwide, regardless of location, terrain or application. It allows clients to accurately record location, show asset movement in real time via a secure online graphical interface, receive an anti-hijack alert if moved without consent, demonstrate final location and save money through investment.
