Meet Trevor. 

The spokesperson for our subcontractors. 

"We were one week out from finishing our project the someone came I during the middle of the night and ripped out all the copper installations. It set us back months because we had to take everything else out to redo it."

-W.S.

"We had $10,000 hit just last month. They brought their trucks, hooked up our trailers and then they were gone with everything we owned inside."

-D.P.

"The fact that someone Ould steal the equipment I use to make a living is so frustrating. That's about as low as it gets."

-B.C.

How can I help Trevor prevent theft of on-site tools, materials and equipment while he is away?

FOCUS ON THE BIG GUNS. 

Although a lot of small equipment gets stolen, those often get replaced fairly easily. Te unexpected loss of trailers and heavier equipment takes much heftier blow at the subcontractors. This is what we want to focus on protecting and recovering. 

Construction theft is usually and inside job, what factors are most important to the subcontractor who owns the equipment? How can we innovate from other trackers?
