Bluetooth Construction Inventory Tracking With A Smartphone

Use Bluetooth technology to automate construction inventory tracking. BLE beacon tags allow company employees to record construction inventory movement between locations with one button click in the QR Inventory mobile application - regardless of the transaction volume.

Out of all IoT inventory and asset tracking options Bluetooth technology is the only one that is natively supported by the smartphones, both iOS and Android. This option allows companies to use smartphones for either automatic continuous asset tracking (as an alternative to the GPS asset tracking), or for the bulk inventory scanning and fast processing of the inventory transactions (as an alternative to RFID inventory tracking).

Bluetooth low energy (BLE) beacon tags attached to the construction inventory pallets, cases and totes make them detectable by a smartphone within 10+ meter radius. QR Inventory mobile application uses this Bluetooth capability for the bulk scanning of the construction inventory, materials and assets. Instead of looking for the QR code or barcode on each inventory item or an asset and scan them individually one by one, a company employee just needs to click a button in the mobile application to scan all construction materials, inventory and assets that are being sent to the job site, are used for the project or are returned to the warehouse. Processing of the inventory transaction takes seconds regardless of the volume of the assets and inventory being moved between locations.

Construction inventory tracking data recorded on a smartphone is sent to a backend cloud software in real time. Authorized system users can check current inventory stock in all locations, inventory transactions history, inventory deliveries and usage per construction project, and other inventory inventory and assets reports on the office computers via the QR Inventory software web dashboard.

Bluetooth Beacon Tags For The Construction Inventory

Bluetooth tags are bluetooth low energy (BLE) beacons that advertise an inventory identification number at the regular time intervals. The advertised inventory ID(s) are picked up by the smartphone and a construction inventory management mobile application. If a user is tracking inventory movement and is processing an inventory transaction, all assets and inventory tagged with the bluetooth beacons within approximately 10 m radius are added to the transaction. This allows a user to add all inventory that should be moved to the transaction with one click of a button in the mobile application. If a user wants to check inventory stock or details on a specific inventory item or an asset, a mobile application finds a nearest inventory item or an asset with the BLE tag and provides information on this item.

Physically BLE beacon that you are using for the construction inventory tracking is a small lightweight plastic tag. It is round, square, or rectangular, an inch or two in width and length, and around half an inch or less thick. Bluetooth beacon tags do not require a line of sight to be scanned. You can put them inside boxes or containers with the construction inventory, attach to the pallets, or attach to the assets or inventory items. Industrial grade BLE tags are rugged and waterproof and are suitable to use for the inventory that can be located outdoors on the construction sites.

QR Inventory software will work with the Bluetooth low energy beacon tags purchased from us, as well as with the bluetooth tags purchased from the other vendors.
