Put the Field in Control
In construction tools are not often lost as they move from the warehouse to a crew. Instead they are lost while the crew has the tools in the field. They are lost as tools move from crew to crew and as crews move from job to job. Since tool loss occurs in the filed construction tool tracking must also occur in the field.
Our app focuses on field based construction tool tracking. Enabling crews to see what they have, search for what they need and track tools with an easy app on their phone.
Focus on the Right Problem
Many tool tracking systems are focused on solving accounting problems. They are inventory based systems designed to connect and be an extension of your back office accounting system. Don't focus on accounting, instead focus on the real problem.
Know who is responsible for each tool. If everyone knows who has a tool then they are easy to find. If each individual knows they are responsible then tool loss reduces dramatically.
Built for Construction
Construction is a unique business. Tool tracking systems that are built for manufacturers, medical or education industries simply don't fit. They are often generic ways to update lists and gather information.
Construction tool tracking has specific workflow steps that need to be enforced to gain the accountability and visibility needed. Don't settle for a generic solution, get something built for your business.
Construction Tool Tracking Video
We noticed that most contractors struggle to keep track of tools and small equipment. For decades construction companies have tried to track tools using paper lists, Excel sheets and accounting systems. These methods were always office centric and never did well tracking tools in the field where crews were constantly moving from job to job. The wide acceptance of the smart phone is opening up new opportunities for tracking tools by contractors. Now that each crew leader carries a phone we have an opportunity to offer a new way to track tools. Our approach is field centric, not office centric. It is designed from the ground up to be easy for field personnel to use and thus it is changing how companies track their tools and equipment.
If field personnel take personal responsibility for the tools and equipment that they are borrowing from the company then most tool tracking problems are solved. Tool loss is a factor of accountability. Tools are lost, stolen and broken because workers know they won't be held accountable. After all, if a company cared about their tools and equipment wouldn't they track the stuff? Since nobody tracks the tools then obviously nobody cares. This attitude is what leads to the high level of tool loss in construction. Our app attacks this attitude. We believe that if built correctly technology can encourage responsibility and build a culture of accountability around tool tracking. This one element solves most of the tool related problems in construction.
