Our businesses are increasingly complex. With a mix of vehicles, powered and non-powered assets, keeping track of your assets and maximising their utilisation can be a challenge. EROAD is here to help make the complex intuitive, with two asset tracking solutions to meet your business needs. Both asset tracking solutions give you the data you need for asset tracking at your fingertips, and integrate into Depot to help you manage your total business effectively.
Our solution is designed with the customer in mind. It’s easy to learn and intuitive to use, so you can spend more time on your business, not on navigating technology.
Do you want to know where your assets are and manage them efficiently?
Assets that frequently move around job sites run the risk of being left behind, this makes them difficult to manage.
EROAD Where Asset Management provides a solution that improves asset utilisation, reduces risk of lost productivity and the cost that goes with not knowing where your assets are. Being able to check assets in and out of job sites using geofences also enables effective job management, proof of delivery and billing.
Select the right EROAD Where tag for your needs
The EROAD Where tag is an ideal tracking solution for larger assets which move around such as trailers, waste bins, freight cages, construction machinery and trade equipment. They have a 5-year battery life and are incredibly durable so they can be attached to assets that are often subjected to tough environments.
The EROAD Where Mini tag is ideal for tracking smaller, high value assets such as expensive power tools, important items such as key rings and other assets. They are more discreet, come with a replaceable 2-year battery, and fit onto assets of all sizes.
The EROAD Where Application syncs with information you have on EROAD’s Depot, meaning you get the best of both worlds. Asset information at your fingertips in the format that works for your business, and sharing of data into EROAD’s Depot so your geofences sync across the platforms to help you manage job sites and customer billing. And you can overlay your assets onto your vehicle locations for effective job management.
How the solution works
EROAD’s unique Mesh network is made up of Ehubo2 telematics devices in vehicles traveling around New Zealand and the EROAD Where App on your mobile phones. When you pair this with the EROAD Where Bluetooth tags, you have an affordable solution that makes asset tracking attractive for your business.
The Mesh network
All the EROAD Ehubo2 units that are driving around New Zealand, plus the EROAD Where Apps on mobile phones form the Mesh network. They are scanning every second for EROAD Where Tags. When any of them pick up a connection to a tag they will store that information and send the locations of the tags that they have picked up in 5-minute lots. Bluetooth networking transmits data via low-power radio waves.
How close does an Ehubo need to be to detect a Where tag?
The Ehubo2 will pick up a Where Tag within 70 metres, and the Where Mini Tag within 25 metres. Please note that metal objects and electrical equipment emitting strong RFs can interfere with Bluetooth or block it entirely.

No need for expensive scanners
The mobile phone app has a QR code scanner included so you can easily add your assets into EROAD Where.
Easy access to asset data
Our centralised asset database means that you have all your assets in one place, making them easy to manage. EROAD Where is hosted in the cloud so your data is well protected and mobile, just like the rest of your business.
Replace spreadsheets, with flexible and automated reporting
Replace time consuming spreadsheets with the cloud and EROAD Where, to easily access, filter and report on your assets. A single source you can trust.
Flexible and automated reporting
Filter your data the way that works for you, to easily create the information you need to make decisions.
Android or Apple? It’s OK, use your existing mobile phones to access asset or site information on the go.
Built to be hidden
Black in colour and low in profile, the Where and Where Mini tags can be conveniently concealed on the underside of a trailer, the top of a portaloo, or wherever works best for your asset.
A battery to last
Up to 5+ years of having the security of knowing your assets are protected. For the larger Where tag, when the battery level is getting low, an LED light will shine on the tracker, and it will show up in your asset management status report as being in the low battery category.
Designed for the environments your assets live in
Floating in a bed of silicone, and with lithium-ion batteries, it is built to last. Our testing of the Where tag has ensured that it will survive dust, immersion in water, being dropped, and even the truck wash.
