Competitor Analysis

“While plant continues to use mechanical diesel engines, electronic immobilisers (as found on cars) are ineffective and electro-mechanical immobilisation systems should be used. Electro-mechanical systems primarily shut-off the diesel fuel supply and/or the hydraulics”
September 2007. P 27 UK Home Office Report.

In the UK, Kosran are the industry standard and endorsed by the Top 5 Plant insurers on performance and merit. We have never had a machine bypassed and stolen. Our Kosran ’fit for purpose’ Standard demands safe and secure systems which will resist bypass and attack for a minimum of 30 minutes.

  1. Trackers real name: Asset Management.
    Should kick-in after it’s stolen, you have a <5% chance of it being recovered AND it
    will cost you.
  2. Electronic immobilisers on plant cut the electrical circuits.
    Without exception they can be hot-wired in maximum 90 seconds (no matter who they are certified by). They make your plant more vulnerable to theft because the operator is less vigilant parking up because he thinks the machine is secured – which it isn’t.
  3. Trackers with Electronic Immobiliser
    See 1 & 2 above – won’t stop it being stolen and you won’t get it back.
  4. Kosran stops Plant Theft & Unauthorised use.
    We stop fatalities and make safety a priority. We have integrated machine telematics/asset management with our electro-mechanical immobilisation system. No Kosran system has ever been bypassed.
