Preventing Construction Site Theft with Moving Intelligence

Construction sites have become prime targets for thieves, with 9 in 10 tradespeople being victims of theft. With expensive plant machinery, tools and materials, construction sites are a treasure trove for thieves. 

The implications of these crimes go far beyond the immediate financial loss - the losses incurred not only impacts construction companies directly but also filters down to affect project timelines, leading to delays, financial repercussions and unhappy customers.
