Tips for Tracking Tools Across Multiple Job Sites
Equipment and tool tracking can be difficult even for small operations. Things are lost or misplaced on a daily basis – that’s simply a fact of life on a job site.
But when you are operating a large operation across multiple job sites, the characteristic challenges of equipment management are multiplied ten-fold. And if you are unable to get a handle on the problem, it can become overwhelming… as well as very costly in terms of time, money and reputation.
Tracking Tools Across Multiple Job Sites:
- Tip #1: Save time while keeping workers accountable for lost items and tool hoarding by scanning items in the field and uploading data wirelessly. With a web browser-based tool management software like ToolHound Cloud, your entire equipment inventory can be managed remotely at any time and from anywhere via a single software platform and an Internet connection.
- Tip #2: Recapture tool costs by billing for usage per each job site or client. ToolHound makes it easy to maintain a complete history of tool usage by item and employee, automatically recording charges and expenses for each inventory item.
- Tip #3: Simplify the task of adding new items to inventory as you expand sites with the ToolHound Purchasing Module. This system not only monitors item availability and usage to create purchase orders, it also reports on usage history to help you make informed decisions about inventory purchasing strategies.
With the ToolHound tool control system, you can gain complete visibility of valuable company assets — tools, equipment, machinery, consumables and vehicles — wherever they are located, across multiple long-term projects and unlimited job sites.
And when workers spend less time searching for lost or misplaced equipment, productivity goes up, costs go down, and your projects stay on schedule.
