ToolWatch Enterprise

Stop Tool Loss — and Manage Materials
more Affordably

ToolWatch is the most comprehensive system available today for managing tools, equipment, materials and consumables more efficiently across your company. This easy-to-use cloud-based application securely stores critical information on all of warehouse and field operation assets in one centralized database.

The result is reduced tool costs, automated management of materials, more consistent equipment service management and more accurate job costs and billing.

Nearly every department within your organization needs information about tools, equipment, materials and consumables. But because these assets are spread around different jobsites, warehouses, tool cribs and regions, it can be nearly impossible for those who need this information to retrieve it efficiently. White boards and paper-based systems are inefficient. And spreadsheet-based approaches are cumbersome and limited in scope.

Designed by construction veterans and tool and equipment experts, ToolWatch allows you to securely manage and track all of your:
 
  • Tools and equipment
  • Consumables and materials
  • Service and calibration
  • Purchasing and receiving
  • Job costs and billing

All through a secure, centralized database. This enables authorized users from any department and from anywhere in the world to retrieve the critical information they need, when they need it.
ToolWatch is much more than just basic tool tracking. It’s a comprehensive software solution that automates and integrates all warehouse, yard and field operations throughout your enterprise — from the warehouse to delivery, all the way to the jobsite and back. ToolWatch enables you to:

Reduce Theft, Loss and Tool Costs: Avoid having to chase down missing tools and equipment, and ensure that items get back to the warehouse or crib.

Automate Materials Management: Set desired stocking levels for materials and consumables with user-defined alerts. Manage the disbursal of items more efficiently. And reduce paperwork by automating the billing of these items to various projects.

Ensure that tool, equipment and fleet maintenance events and calibrations are always performed on time. Easily track repair costs. And access complete service history for all your assets to help extend their useful life and to comply with OSHA regulations.

Streamline Purchasing and Receiving: Get notified when materials and consumables reach their reorder points. Extend purchasing and receiving functionality outside your four walls with handheld mobile devices. And increase PO and inventory accuracy through an automated PO-creation and receiving process.

Automate Job Costing and Billing: Keep field and warehouse staff from having to manage tedious paperwork through automated billing functions. Plus, ensure accurate project performance by automatically charging customers, departments or projects for tools used, lost or damaged.
