allocation for the project, delivery to the
job site and usage. Modern technologies, such as mobile app, QR codes, BLE tags, IoT gateways and cloud software make inventory management on the construction sites fast,
accurate and user friendly.
Use a mobile app and QR code or barcode scanning for the efficient low cost solution for the construction inventory management.
If you do not want to rely on the construction site employees for the QR code scanning, you can use a Bluetooth IoT tracking system for a fully automated
asset and inventory management.
Construction Asset Tracking With QR Codes Or Bluetooth
Construction assets are used on the multiple job sites and are constantly moved around.
In order to efficiently track construction assets between the job sites and the yard you need a software system that:
- Can be easily used in the field
- Has a real time link to the central data storage
- Automates asset tracking process as much as possible
A QR Inventory software checks all the marks. It uses modern tools: mobile devices (smartphones or tablets), cloud software,
QR code, barcode, NFC or BLE tags, IoT gateways and sensors for the efficient construction equipment tracking in real time.
Field employees scan a QR code to quickly record asset re-location, access documents or record equipment maintenance.
Office employees use a cloud software web dashboard to set up the system and access
asset tracking reports.
They can review and download reports on the current equipment and tools location, historic equipment logs, equipment maintenance data, and more.
A Bluetooth asset tracking option allows you to further automate construction asset management using
mobile phones and bulk scanning, or IoT gateways for a
fully automated IoT asset tracking.
Inventory And Asset Management For HVAC, Plumbing And Electrical Contractors
With the inventory management software for contractors you can easily keep track of tools and inventory that you have on the service trucks and in the warehouse.
You can be sure that each service truck has the right set of tools, equipment and parts to do the job.
A QR Inventory software provides an easy way for the field technicians to track parts, materials and tools in the mobile app
using QR code scanning. A technician can document equipment installation and maintenance on the job site using a smartphone and mobile forms.
Inventory and equipment info collected in the mobile app is sent to a back end cloud software in real time.
All authorized software users have a real time access to the live data, on the mobile phones and on the office computers.
QR Code Construction Tool Tracking Software
A QR Inventory software uses modern technologies to make construction tool tracking simple, efficient and error free.
Field employees use QR codes and a mobile app for the quick tools check out and check in.
An employee can fill out a checklist indicating tool conditions on check out and return, and attach photos for the visual documentation.
You can always check where the tools are, who was the last person to check out a tool, where and when a tool was used.
Use mobile forms to record tools maintenance, repair and calibration. Set and receive reminders to make sure you do not miss
calibration or preventive maintenance.
A QR Inventory software helps you create a full accountability system for the construction tools and equipment. Prevent tools misplacement, loss and
increase tools useful life.
Non-Stock Inventory Management For Construction Projects
Construction projects often require tracking of non-stock inventory and assets. These are parts and materials that are not stocked, but are ordered
as needed for each specific construction project.
Non-stock assets can be supplied by the customer, ordered from a vendor or fabricated on demand within the construction company.
A QR Inventory software allows you to easily track this kind of non-stock assets for the construction projects,
from receiving or fabrication to installation on the job site.
Automating Construction Asset Management With Bluetooth And IoT
Use BLE beacon tags and a smartphone for tracking assets and materials that you use for each construction project.
BLE tags are more efficient than QR codes for asset tracking. If you have high volume of materials and assets that you move in and out of the job sites daily,
BLE tags will save you a lot of time and will increase your productivity.
You can opt for the company employees scanning assets to move them in and out of the yard or job site. However, unlike
QR codes, BLE tags do not require an employee to handle each asset and scan each tag. Instead, they can add
all nearby assets to the batch with one click in the mobile app.
You can also opt for a fully automated construction asset management system using IoT gateways instead of mobile phones.
An IoT system works on its own and does not require job site workers to do anything extra.
Construction Inventory And Documentation Integrated With Procore
Combine mobile inventory and asset management, mobile data collection on the job sites with the powerful construction project management platform for a complete
control of the construction projects.
A QR Inventory - Procore integration allows you to do two things.
You can automatically route job site materials and equipment deliveries and usage recorded in the QR Inventory mobile app to Procore daily logs.
All images taken with a smartphone camera
for visual documentation are sent to Procore as attachments to a daily log entry.
You can also fill out all types of construction site paperwork on a smartphone using mobile forms. When a completed mobile form is submitted,
a pdf document is automatically
created and is uploaded to the Procore documents directory. You can use this option for
job sites inspections, safety audits, DVIR forms, visitor and contractor induction, and more. You have a total control of the pdf document format and content
via a custom MS Word template.
Benefits Of Using QR Codes In Construction
QR Codes are a natural fit for the construction industry and contractors (HVAC, plumbing, electrical, roofing, etc.).
These are industries with the dispersed field workforce. Most of the work is conducted on the multiple job sites.
Tools and inventory are stored on the service trucks, as well as in the warehouse, and are used in the field, on the job sites.
Job site employees do not have ready access to the computers or wifi connection. Smartphones and QR codes provide a good replacement.
QR codes give field employees a reliable way to access and record inventory and asset info.
By scanning a QR code using a mobile app on a smartphone, job site technicians can access and update data in real time.
A QR code system helps construction companies create a real time communication between the job sites and the office.
Everyone has an access to the same live information.
