No doubt, asset tracking is important for loss prevention and to streamline business operations. It’s not just about maximizing revenues though. Asset tracking solutions that monitor safety devices, such as automated external defibrillators, lifebuoys, or fire extinguishers, can save lives. Prevent unauthorized movement or removal of safety assets to be prepared in case of emergencies when seconds count!

What should you look for in GPS asset tracking solutions?

GPS tracker size

Is the tracker small enough to protect your assets of all sizes? Select an asset tracking solution that is compact and concealable and one that can be installed on any type of equipment.

Battery life

Non-powered assets, such as tanks, tools, gear boxes, or shipping containers, require battery-powered GPS asset tracking solutions. Long battery life is crucial to ensure reliable tracking, today and tomorrow. Advanced sleep mode, periodic updates, and intelligent movement-based tracking deliver longer battery life for our Nomatik trackers.


The GPS tracker must be rugged and weatherproof to withstand any extreme conditions that the asset might encounter.
Nomatik trackers feature IP67 rated housing which ensures the device can withstand fine dust, high-pressure spray, submersion for 30 minutes in 1m of water, and extreme temperatures.

Ease of installation & use

When evaluating GPS asset tracking solutions, choose one that is easy to understand and use, yet durable enough to withstand extreme conditions. How difficult is it to install the asset tracker? Look for easy install plug and play solutions to guarantee immediate value!
Nomatik trackers feature plug and play hardware. The system is cloud-hosted, with no software to install or maintain. Simply attach them to your assets and start tracking as they are preconfigured and ready to use immediately. Configuration changes are applied seamlessly over-the-air.

Real-time tracking capabilities

Do you need to track mission-critical assets in a cost-effective and efficient manner? Real-time tracking capabilities are essential to be able to locate stolen or moved assets quickly and efficiently. Ensure trackers feature motion activated and data-driven alerts for real-time visibility to critical events, such as our Nomatik GPS trackers.


If a tracker issues an alert but the location is inaccurate, this could lead to safety concerns as well as inefficiencies and increased costs. At Nomatik, GPS and GLONASS positioning systems are used simultaneously with a 72-channel high sensitivity receiver (-167dBM) for enhanced accuracy, high precision, and faster fixes.

Data safety

Is data stored and transmitted securely and privately using end-to-end encryption? End to end encryption protects the integrity and confidentiality of your data, and with Nomatik trackers you get the added benefit of military grade encryption to ensure the strictest standards are being met.

These are just some of the many things to consider when evaluating GPS asset tracking solutions. Nomatik’s plug and play GPS trackers are installed in just minutes, providing global visibility to your assets with full history. Start saving time and money while minimizing downtime!
