Advanced telematics systems help SANY America customers manage high-value assets
The custom-made IoT solution protects against theft and gives customers easy access to monitor their assets in real time
The construction and material handling equipment company needed a way to help customers keep track of trucks, cranes and other valuable machinery—especially with heavy equipment theft on the rise.
Enabling AT&T Internet of Things (IoT) technology helps SANY America and its customers manage a wide range of heavy equipment and other valuable assets with GPS telematics services, including the AT&T Global SIM and AT&T M2M Application platform.
In addition to benefiting customers, the affordable asset-tracking solution helps SANY be more competitive in the U.S. marketplace and increase its value to customers. With the ability to better protect its assets, values have increased and sales have already hit record numbers.
SANY Group began as a small welding factory in China in 1989. Since then, it has grown to include five industrial complexes in China as well as four R&D and manufacturing centers in the United States, Germany, India and Brazil.

Commercial equipment manufacturers pay a hefty price for effective resource management solutions, but the return on investment was slim, as was customer reassurance. And, most of the information SANY and its customers needed was not available in real time—and that didn’t help the high theft issue, either.
The AT&T IoT and GPS solutions allowed SANY to provide its customers with a comprehensive machine-tracking system that delivers all the machine data they need, while increasing the value of the assets themselves. Telematics services from AT&T for commercial equipment include location and history, detailed reports on machine usage, geo-fencing capabilities, and real-time diagnostic and condition alerts.
