Construction Tool Tracking Software With The Mobile Application And QR Codes, NFC, Bluetooth

Efficient construction equipment and tools management using modern technologies: smartphones, cloud software, mobile application, QR codes, NFC or Bluetooth (BLE beacon) tags, IoT sensors and gateways.

A tool tracking software makes tools and equipment management simple and efficient for the job site employees. They can check out and check in tools with one QR code or BLE tag scan, and record additional information in the mobile application. Create an accountability system, where job site employees are responsible for the tools and equipment they check out and use. Review tools and equipment tracking data: location, who checked them out, when was the last calibration or service, what jobs they were used for, etc., etc. - via a cloud software web dashboard.

  • A complete, easy to use system for the construction equipment and tool tracking: cloud software, mobile application, QR code, NFC or Bluetooth tags.
  • Track construction tools and equipment on the job sites, on the service trucks and in the warehouse in the mobile application. Review reports via the construction tool tracking software web dashboard in real time.
  • Use bluetooth tools tracking for the faster scanning and transactions processing. Instead of finding a barcode and scanning each tool, press a button in the mobile application to process all tools on the pallet or on the truck at once.
  • Optionally use IoT module in the QR Inventory software for a completely automated tools and equipment tracking and conditions monitoring. With IoT asset tracking system no human participation is required. Equipment and tool tracking information is passed to the cloud software automatically via IoT gateways.
  • Use digital mobile forms for recording and tracking construction tools calibration and maintenance.
  • Field technicians can access construction tools and equipment documentation on the job site by scanning a QR code / Bluetooth tag / NFC tag with a smartphone.
  • Review tools and equipment usage per project / job site for the job site billing. Analyze construction assets utilization efficiency.
  • Configure construction tools tracking software to work the way you need: define what do you want to record and report via a web dashboard.

Construction Tool Tracking In The Mobile Application

Field employees can easily track tools and equipment in real time using a smartphone and a QR Inventory mobile application. A tool tracking mobile application has QR codes and BLE tags scanning capabilities, which allow field technicians to quickly record tools check out and returns, enter additional information, and look up tools and equipment documentation. Bluetooth tags provide the best tools tracking automation. Instead of scanning each individual tool a technician can bulk scan the whole batch of the construction tools at once just by clicking a button in the mobile application.

Track everything that happens to the construction tools: checking out to the job site, job site usage, return to the warehouse, transfer between the job sites, sending to repair, etc. QR Inventory software gives you full flexibility to decide which asset transactions you need, and what additional data to record for each transaction, if any.

All construction tools tracking data recorded in the mobile application are sent to a backend cloud software in real time. Office employees can review up to the minute assets information via the QR Inventory software web dashboard: tools and equipment location, job site assets list, who checked out the tool and when, what is available in the warehouse for the upcoming projects, etc.

Automated Construction Tool Tracking Using IoT Gateways

Use Bluetooth IoT gateway instead of a smartphone for a completely automated construction tool tracking system. No participation of the job site employees or equipment tags scanning is required. An IoT gateway detects tools and equipment in a monitored zone, whether on a construction site or in the yard, and sends data to the backend cloud software. A Bluetooth gateway that comes with the IoT module of the QR Inventory software has edge processing capabilities. An IoT gateway pre-processes BLE beacons data, filters out redundant information and batches data before sending it to the backend cloud software. The edge processing capability significantly reduces a load on the remote cloud server, and your cloud hosting bill.

A QR Inventory software allows you to set edge processing rules, as well as configure custom alerts. You can instantly receive alerts on the misplaced assets, or assets entering or leaving a designated area.

Use Bluetooth IoT sensors to remotely monitor temperature and humidity conditions of the tools and equipment. An IoT temperature and humidity monitoring system sends you instant alerts if conditions go out of the set thresholds, and provides digital temperature and humidity logs. Prevent tools and equipment damage on the job sites, correct adverse conditions on time and avoid costly equipment and tools breakdowns.

Tracking Construction Tools Lifetime History

Use QR Inventory software to track each construction tool individually by the serial number, and review each tool lifetime history at any time. Every time something happens to the construction tool: it is sent to a job site, returned, sent to repair, needs service or maintenance, is calibrated, etc. - an employee scans a QR code or BLE tag and records an event and relevant information. Lifetime history of each asset, with dates, employee names, completed calibrations and inspections, and other details can be accessed on demand and downloaded via the tool tracking software reports.

Tracking Construction Tools Inventory

Use QR Inventory software to access construction tools inventory stock in each location. Check how many tools of a specific type are out on each job site, and how many you have on hand for check out.

You can create reminders and receive automatic e-mail alerts when construction tools inventory count falls below the minimum quantity and you need to order more.

Tracking Construction Tools Warranty, Calibration And Maintenance

Keep construction tools and equipment in the best shape, extend tools useful life

Use smartphones and custom mobile forms for tracking construction tools calibration, maintenance and repairs. Eliminate physical paperwork - all asset records collected on the mobile devices are securely stored in a centralized cloud location. Keep digital records for the construction tools organized, access them on demand from anywhere via the cloud software web interface. Use multiple search filters to find required information fast.

Set custom reminders to make sure you never miss a tool calibration or preventive maintenance, and receive automatic alerts with a list of assets for which calibration or preventive maintenance is due. Set alerts for other important events, such as warranty expiration. Receive automatic alerts if a submitted maintenance or inspection form contains outliers that require immediate attention.

Construction Tools Rentals Tracking, Job Site Billing

QR Inventory software makes construction tools and equipment rentals and job site billing easy and straightforward.

Record asset rentals and returns by scanning a QR code, NFC or Bluetooth tag with a smartphone, and fill out additional information in the mobile application (such as customer, expected return date, notes, etc.). You define what information you need to collect via the QR Inventory software admin interface. Optionally add photo(s) to document equipment conditions, and collect signatures on a smartphone.

Use tool tracking software reports for easy rental invoicing and job site billing. Billing reports let you see at a glance a list of the construction tools used on each job site for any time period in the past, with the number of days and rental fees. Filter billing reports by the construction tool type, job site, customer, project, dates, etc. - and get the exact information you need.


Control Construction Tool Tracking Process

QR Inventory software is very customizable, and is easy to adapt to your business workflow. You can customize almost every aspect of the tools and equipment management process via the web dashboard.

Decide what data to store for the different equipment groups, what documentation employees should be able to access in the field on a smartphone, what asset transactions you need and what data to collect for each transaction. Create custom mobile forms for recording tools and equipment calibration, service and maintenance. Create forms to report equipment damage in the field, set up custom reminders, customize cloud software dashboard and reports, and more.
