NER Partners with QUALCOMM, American Resources Insurance Co.
QUALCOMM Incorporated and National Equipment Register (NER) have joined together to bring a combined, more comprehensive theft and recovery service to the construction and heavy equipment industries. The partnership marks the first time the NER has aligned itself with a telematics and equipment management services provider such as QUALCOMM, as well as QUALCOMM's first time siding with a security and recovery services provider such as NER
The combined service from these two companies will include the GlobalTRACS equipment management system and NER's program, which includes enrollment in the NER database, decals that help deter theft by indicating the equipment's identification information is registered, and communication channels to law enforcement investigators. The combined program compresses the time lapse between being alerted that a machine may be stolen and reporting a theft to the most appropriate law enforcement agency. This time-lapse reduction raises the likelihood of stolen equipment recovery and reduces the costs associated with theft for both owners and insurers.
Larry Cleary, vice president and general manager of construction equipment for QUALCOMM Wireless Business Solutions said, “By working together with NER, we can offer our customers not only the equipment management and theft recovery information they need to optimize their business operations, but also theft prevention, used equipment purchase services, and invaluable relationships with law enforcement and the NER.”
In other NER news, the organization has announced a separate partnership with American Resources Insurance Co. The alliance provides policyholders of American Resources with a 20% discount on NER's theft prevention and equipment recovery services and a $5,000 theft deductible waiver for policyholders who use NER's services.
