Finding Stolen Equipment Now Easier

The National Equipment Register (NER) and QUALCOMM have teamed up to help dealers find and recover stolen equipment. The service combines QUALCOMM's GlobalTRACS equipment management system and NER's program to close the time lapse between an alert a machine may be stolen to reporting the theft.

"By working together with NER," says Larry Cleary, vice president and general manager of construction equipment for QUALCOMM Wireless Business Solutions, "we can offer our customers not only the equipment management and theft recovery information they need to optimize their business operations, but also theft prevention, used equipment purchase services and invaluable relationships with law enforcement and the NER."

GlobalTRACS collects, organizes and manages equipment use and location data and provides critical system alerts. Information can be accessed via the Internet or integrated into existing back-end business software systems.
With its 24-hour hotline, NER provides law enforcement agencies, equipment owners and insurance companies with expert advice, as well as theft and ownership information.
