No more long and outdated spreadsheet tracking. With a click of a button, every team member can get the location history.
Let's face it, stickers and Post-it notes on your desk or the side of your equipment are not a long-term solution. With YARDZ, each asset has a running list of notes that team members can contribute to so that everyone is on the same page and nothing is forgotten.
No more guessing. With the Utilization Log in YARDZ, you can track fuel, hours, and mileage in a number of ways. Logs are updated with inspection forms, telematics data, maintenance work, and manually. Use Utilization Logs to automatically trigger maintenance events, or track overall utilization.

Tool / Asset History
Over time you can collect data on who has used a tool or asset along with return and checkout notes to indicate damage, repair, etc.
Every Monday morning your team members get an email with a breakdown of all assets or tools in their possession. With a single click, your team member can confirm they still have the tool or asset. This weekly accountability means that missing/stolen assets are reported in a timely fashion.
While reviewing all your rentals and utilization, users can choose to extend estimated rental dates or with a single click, submit a call off request to their sales rep.

When submitting or canceling a call-off request, project team members or other administrative personnel can receive email notifications so that everyone is on the same page.
With all your rentals and owned assets in a single portal, the integration of your telematic data from rental companies and or other vendors helps automate location and maintenance data in YARDZ.
Data from all sources
No more need to log into all your different telematics portals. With YARDZ you can pull all your data into one single location to make the decisions you need to make faster.
Set up geofences on all your projects and equipment yards so that telemetry data can automatically update current location and location history, as well as create logistic events.
Have your tracking devices update the operating hour and mileage meter on assets, triggering regular and preventative maintenance events.
Instantly know which assets are under or over-utilized to make the right choices while running your jobs.
Fault Code Reporting
For those trackers that are reading from the computer on your assets, any fault code reporting is passed into your single all-assets maintenance portal with YARDZ.
With Inspection Forms, your team can perform daily inspections, make fuel delivery entries, update asset locations, and more.
Get rid of that paper form and use your phone, tablet, or mobile laptop to perform inspections anywhere. All inspection logs are immediately stored at an asset level for full team transparency and reliability.
Start with any of our multiple prebuilt forms and customize them, or build your own. YARDZ makes it easy to create inspection forms that capture the information you need from your operators.
Images and Notes
You can make it mandatory or optional for your team member to upload photos and add notes at any step of the inspection process. Images are safely stored with that Inspection Log for later review as needed.
One of the many components you can add to your inspection forms is Location Updating. When enabled, your inspectors' GPS location is captured from the devices and automatically changes the project location in YARDZ if the asset has moved. This is especially useful for those assets that aren't yet equipped with GPS trackers.
What if an inspection fails? Instead of waiting for the paper to make it back to the office using the old method, YARDZ will immediately fire off notifications to all parties you deem relevant to that type of inspection.
Say goodbye to your whiteboards or outdated Excel logs that are currently managing your logistics. With YARDZ, all your schedules, all your drivers, all your moves are managed with ease.
Plan where and when your asset needs to be and then, with a click of a button you can dispatch your drivers. All the information needed about moving the asset will go to your drivers for easy management.

Load all your projects in YARDZ to manage rental spend budget, project team members, location, business units, geofences and more.
