Construction Equipment Tracking In The Field With The Smartphones

Modern construction asset management software uses smartphones and tablets for the real time equipment tracking on the job sites. Authorized software users always have access to the current assets information, on the mobile devices and office computers.

Have you ever been in the situation when you cannot locate construction equipment or tools when you urgently need them for the project? Such situations cause big problems and delays, and can be easily avoided with the mobile equipment tracking software. Using a QR Inventory software for the assets tracking on the job sites, you can:

  • organize construction assets, equipment and tools,
  • label them with the QR codes, NFC or bluetooth low energy (BLE) tags,
  • record assets check in, check out, relocation, assignment to an employee or a project on the spot by scanning a QR code / NFC tag / BLE tag with a smartphone,
  • review real time assets location, transactions and usage reports via the cloud software web dashboard

Use smartphones and a mobile application for the QR code / NFC / BLE tags scanning and recording construction assets tracking information. All information recorded in the mobile application is submitted to the backend cloud software in real time, and is immediately accessible via the web dashboard.

As a result, you have a simple software tool for tracking construction assets without distracting company employees from their main responsibilities. You always know where the assets are, for which project they are used, how long each asset was used for each job and when, asset conditions on check out and return, and all other details.

Construction Equipment Tracking Software With Bluetooth IoT Technology

Take construction equipment tracking automation to the next level using BLE beacon tags, and a smartphone or a dedicated Bluetooth IoT gateway.

Bluetooth asset tracking further automates construction equipment and tools management. A QR Inventory software gives you an option to use a smartphone or a dedicated Bluetooth IoT gateway for transferring asset tracking data to a backend cloud software.

  • Construction equipment and tools tracking with the BLE tags and a smartphone. You can use a QR Inventory mobile application for tracking assets tagged with the BLE beacons. Unlike QR codes, a field employee does not need to scan every asset separately to record a transaction. A smartphone will detect all assets in the vicinity. A job site or a yard foreman just needs to click one button in the mobile application to check all assets on the truck or pallet in or out. This bulk scanning capability offers a big speed advantage over the QR code scanning. If you need to move large volume of assets between the construction sites and the yard / warehouse, using BLE tags for the construction equipment tracking will significantly increase your efficiency and productivity.
  • IoT based construction equipment tracking with BLE tags and a Bluetooth IoT gateway. An IoT module in the QR Inventory software provides all required software and hardware components for the automated construction equipment tracking without any human participation. A Blutooth IoT gateway automatically detects assets tagged with the BLE tags and sends asset tracking information to the cloud software - no human involvement is required. You get real time reports on the current assets location, construction equipment movement history, equipment usage report per project and idle time in the yard. Create alerts and receive immediate notification on the misplaced assets or an asset leaving a designated location.

You can combine QR code and IoT construction equipment tracking for the best performance. Use QR code tracking for the small tools, and Bluetooth IoT asset tracking for the valuable expensive construction equipment.

Construction Equipment Tracking Software With The Mobile Data Access

Real time documentation access in the QR Inventory software / mobile application. Job site employees often need to access documentation on the asset they are working with, but have no way to do it. A QR Inventory software eliminates this problem, and saves you hours of the employees' time.

A mobile application lets field technicians access asset information instantly by scanning a QR code label or NFC / BLE tag. Information can include asset specifications, operation safety information, pdf documentation, images, drawings, past maintenance and service records, and anything else a technician needs to know on the job. A construction equipment tracking software gives you a complete control on what data field employees can access.

If a job site technician or a subcontractor needs to sign off on the safety sheet before operating a construction equipment or a tool, he can do so in the mobile application. The signature will be preserved and accessible via the QR Inventory software reports.

Flexible Construction Assets Tracking Software: Track Equipment & Tools Your Way

A QR Inventory software is very configurable and flexible. It is easy to adjust your construction equipment tracking process to the way you do business. You control many aspects of the asset management via the cloud software web dashboard:
  • what information to store in the software for each assets group
  • which asset transactions to record
  • what additional information to collect for each asset transaction
  • how to handle various field locations: job sites, construction sites, service trucks, etc.

You can create:
  • custom mobile forms for tracking construction assets service, maintenance and calibration
  • custom reminders to send you automatic alerts when the next preventive maintenance or calibration is due
  • custom pdf reports for sharing with the customers or external auditors
  • and more...

Tracking Construction Equipment Use Authorization

Construction equipment and tool often require a user to obtain a certification before he can operate them. A QR Inventory software will verify that only authorized employees can check out tools and equipment. If an employee has no authorization to use the selected asset he will be redirected to the page with the information on how to obtain a certification.

Real Time Construction Equipment & Tools Reports In The QR Inventory Software

Access construction assets reports in real time, on the mobile devices in the field and computers in the office. Review asset location, for which project it is being used, transactions history, historic asset locations for the job site billing, etc. Check what do you currently have on each job site and in the service trucks.

Review historic equipment usage logs (dates, location, employee, all additional information). Access construction equipment service and repair records, usage statistics, and more. Make informed business decisions based on the real time and historic asset utilization data.

Construction Equipment Management Software With The Maintenance & Service Tracking

Mobile data collection module of QR Inventory software allows you to create custom mobile forms for tracking construction equipment maintenance, service, repairs, as well as other types of the job site paperwork. You can create mobile forms via the cloud software web dashboard, and technicians will fill out these forms on the smartphones in the mobile application.

Before starting an asset service or repair, field technicians can access past maintenance and service log and asset specifications by scanning a QR code / NFC / BLE tag with a smartphone. Instant access to this information allows employees to complete maintenance work faster and with the better quality.

Completed maintenance and service records are sent to the backend cloud software, and are immediately available to the authorized personnel.

Construction equipment tracking software ensures that assets are well maintained and extends their useful life. Create custom preventive maintenance and warranty expiration reminders - and receive automatic alerts with the list of the assets with the scheduled events.
