In 2009 FreightWatch International estimated that around $487 million in goods was stolen in the United States, but one customer with Enfora technology utilised in a “Track What Matters” system managed to locate their missing trailer to its exact dock bay even though the license plates had been changed. The trailer and its contents were recovered by authorities the very same day it was stolen.
Another US company using Enfora-inspired “Track What Matters” devices began monitoring the location of its trucks and came to realise that its 3-man crew on $47 an hour each was racking up 60 hours of on-the-clock non-productive hours costing the firm $8,460 per week. Thanks to the technology, the employer was able to adjust his working schedule to make the necessary savings.
Meanwhile, a limousine company used the special report-generating function of an Enfora device to snare a rogue employee who was pocketing revenue that was rightfully the employer’s. The Enfora-designed programme managed to log the location of the particular limousine and the opening and closing of the passenger doors, thereby determining how much in fares that driver should have been declaring but instead was keeping for himself.
Enfora is described as a leading provider of intelligent wireless asset management solutions, enabling enterprises to access, analyze, and leverage information from their geographically dispersed assets using location-based monitoring and control and asset management applications.
