Use Modern Technologies To Streamline Construction Tool Tracking

Modern technologies, such as smart tool tags (QR codes, NFC, BLE), mobile apps, cloud software and IoT, make construction tools tracking fast, easy and efficient. You can track tools and equipment anywhere using a QR code scanning mobile app, and instantly get updates to the central database. Improve accountability by adding an inspection checklist to tool check out and check in process. The checklist can be easily completed in the mobile app, and can include photos and signatures for a complete documentation.

Want to automate tool and equipment tracking even further? Use BLE asset tracking system to eliminate a need for QR code scanning and track tools and equipment automatically.

Construction Tool Tracking With QR Codes

Tracking construction tools using a QR code scanning mobile app is an efficient, low cost option that requires minimal efforts from the field workforce. Field employees can track construction tools anywhere in real time, access live data and submit updates from the smartphone.

Steps To Implement QR Code Tool Tracking System

Use these three simple steps to implement a QR code tool tracking system:

1. Create QR Codes And Label Tools
Create QR code labels in the QR Inventory software using a cloud web interface. Print QR code labels one at a time or in bulk, and attach them to the construction tools that you plan to track.

2. Use A Mobile App For The Real Time Tool Tracking
Use a QR code scanning mobile app to check out, check in and transfer tools. A mobile app updates central database with current tool status in real time.

3. Review Reports In The Cloud Software
Review and download real time and historic reports. Check current tools locations, tools usage history, and tools utilization reports. Don't waste time searching for tools, do a better planning on tools purchases and job allocation.

Construction Tool Tracking With Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Tags

For even faster and more advanced tool tracking consider using Bluetooth low energy (BLE) tags instead of QR codes. BLE tags are the fastest and most efficient way to track assets. You can still use a smartphone and a mobile app, but you do not need to scan each tool. One click in the mobile app will detect all tagged assets and add them to the batch.

You can also use a Bluetooth IoT gateway instead of a smartphone for a fully automated IoT asset tracking.

Steps To Implement BLE Tool Tracking System

Use these four steps to implement BLE tool tracking system:

1. Tag Tools And Equipment
Attach BLE tags to the tools and equipment.

2. Enter Tools Into The Tracking Software
Use a mobile app to link each construction tool to the BLE tag and enter it into the software system.

3. Track Tools With The Mobile App
Use a mobile app to record tools check out, check in or transfer. BLE tags allow for the fast bulk scanning. You do not need to locate a tag and scan each asset. A first click in the mobile app will add all assets to the batch. A second click will submit the entire batch to the back end cloud software.

4. Do Asset Audits
BLE tags allow you to do periodic asset audits of a job site or a service truck fast and error free. You just need two clicks to detect all assets on a service truck or a job site, and submit data to the back end cloud software.

Fully Automate Asset Tracking With IoT Gateway
If you do not want to rely on company employees for the tool tracking, you can use a Bluetooth IoT gateway instead of the smartphone. An IoT gateway does the same job as a smartphone - detects assets tagged with the BLE tags and sends data to a back end cloud software. However, job site employees do not need to do any asset tracking tasks. IoT asset tracking system works on its own - no employees participation is required.
