ESCO launches global asset tracking system
Track Pro now features global location monitoring via satellite and cellular networks
ESCO has released a major upgrade of its Track Pro asset tracking system to add global coverage and meet the needs of a larger user base.
ESCO Track Pro, the rugged asset tracking system for mining and infrastructure applications now features global location monitoring via satellite and cellular networks. ESCO has also engineered a new steel housing to help protect the tracking devices in harsh industrial and commercial applications.
As an expansion of the smart products portfolio from ESCO, Track Pro was originally developed as a tracking system for equipment dealers and rental companies, to help manage the fleets of ESCO mining and construction buckets and attachments stored in their stockyard.
The upgraded ESCO Track Pro system retains all of the original functionality, while expanding its capabilities to better serve a broader user base and locate a wider variety of assets - regardless of whether they are located in the stockyard or spread out across multiple worksites or countries.
Consisting of a desktop portal, Android and iOS mobile apps, and rugged tracking devices that are affixed to the users' assets, Track Pro saves time and reduces paperwork by providing a centralized digital database of all their assets for instantly locating and utilizing equipment. Included is the feature to record asset conditions with uploaded photos during check out and check in of equipment and the ability to store maintenance and other related documents. With the cellular or satellite coverage devices, Track Pro includes the ability to create custom geofences to help protect against equipment theft or misuse.
When installed on an ESCO bucket or attachment, users can utilize additional features to identify spare part numbers and even generate a shopping list that can be emailed directly to a local ESCO dealer.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
