Making Life Easier for Warehouse and Yard Managers

You shoulder tremendous responsibility as a warehouse or yard manager. Your ability to consistently deliver the right tools and materials to the field can dramatically impact field performance and project profitability. So when the field doesn't have the right tools, equipment or materials on time, the business can suffer. And so can your reputation.

ToolWatch helps you to more easily fulfill requests for tools, equipment, materials and consumables. It puts time back into your day by helping you manage these important resources faster, more efficiently. And with virtually no paper.

Fewer Steps and Less Paperwork

For instance, you'll save time and avoid headaches with a streamlined pick ticket process. ToolWatch mobile scanning devices help you fulfill orders from electronic pick tickets faster, more accurately, and with less paperwork. You'll have a more efficient way of getting the right items go to the right jobs. You'll help keep field staff productive. All with fewer "fires" and less stress.

Simplify Tool and Equipment Maintenance Management

ToolWatch automatically notifies you when service events are coming due. It tracks the costs and service history for all your tools, equipment and vehicles. It pinpoints where you're spending your time and repair budget. And it enables you to easily keep detailed records of calibrations and inspections to meet OSHA requirements.

Make Your Delivery Personnel More Effective

Just like the big package-delivery companies, ToolWatch provides simple mobile computing devices that streamline the process of delivering or picking up tools, equipment and materials. These handheld devices even capture digital signatures and print receipts in the field. And that translates into higher accountability and reduced employee tool hoarding.

Automate Routine Purchasing Activities

ToolWatch enables you to set desired levels for tools, materials and consumables. This includes minimum and maximum thresholds for every item. When an item approaches its trigger point, ToolWatch alerts you, allowing you to take action before the item runs out. Ready to cut a PO? No problem. Simply select the items you want from the alert list and the system automatically sends them to a ToolWatch PO, complete with accurate vendor part numbers and pricing.

Designed by Industry Insiders That Understand Your World

ToolWatch helps you and your people get more done. No wasted motion, no extra steps. Better yet, it's so well conceived that it eliminates the human desire to take shortcuts. That's because ToolWatch was designed by construction industry insiders. People who understand that what you don't need is added complexity in your job. And what you could use are ways to make your day-to-day responsibilities easier, better, more efficient.
