Operations

NER Equipment analysts have a unique depth of knowledge relating to the identification of off-road equipment using serial numbers and other component numbers. They combine their technical expertise with their knowledge of heavy equipment and industry contacts to quality-control the incoming data and carry out and monitor searches on the NER database.

NER Database

We designed the NER database to record detailed information about equipment ownership and theft. We collect multiple points of identification for a single machine and apply a unique search algorithm to find possible matches in the database of over 100,000 equipment theft reports.

NER also has access to more than 15 million ownership records of construction and farm equipment based upon information provided from equipment manufacturers, fleet owners, and available public records.
