Stolen Skid-steer Recovered In 30 Minutes

Longview Advantage recently recovered a stolen skid-steer loader in less than 30 minutes.

Soon after an equipment operator in East St. Louis arrived at his highway jobsite, he found his skid-steer was missing. JKW Leasing of St. Louis had purchased more than a dozen of Longview Advantage's vShepherd product on behalf of a local construction company. The operator called his office, who in turn called the Longview Advantage Alarm and Recovery Center, who contacted police.

"Longview found out immediately where the machine was and even printed a map," says Victoria Dreckmann, account executive for JKW Leasing.

Based on a combination of GPS, wireless communication and the Internet, Longview Advantage provides theft protection and fleet management solutions specifically designed for the equipment market. Not only can customers keep equipment protected from theft, they can also track the exact location of the equipment in real time and access information that allows customers to easily manage equipment and maintenance schedules.
