eLocks are better than eSeals for three specific reasons:
- eLocks can be reused while eSeals cannot. Once a seal is broken through fixed commands, it cannot be resealed. Elocks on the other hand, can be locked and unlocked multiple times.
- With the right fleet management software integration, consignment managers can receive notifications for whenever the lock is opened or closed. eSeals, on the other hand, cannot be resealed, so the managers only receive two notifications - when they’re sealed and broken.
- Most good eLocks come with in-built GPS tracking devices. eSeals, on the other hand, don’t. Therefore, eLocks do not only lock away assets but also track them in real-time.
