To help equipment owners manage their assets more effectively and economically, the OBC9000 from On-Board Communications, Dallas, Texas, provides powerful tracking and theft recovery, while facilitating affordable asset management. "This technology enables rental dealers to protect their entire fleet of equipment with minimal investment," said Jim Reagan, national rental account manager for On-Board Communications.
The OBC9000 uses AssetTraks™, a web-based application that provides immediate location on demand, both with street mapping and GPS location coordinates. It also tracks engine hours, with automatic e-mail notification when routine service is due. An optional starter-disabler makes a unit inoperable, eliminating unauthorized use.
