Purpose-Built: The ToolWatch Origin Story

More than 30 years ago, Don Kafka was an electrical contractor who had had enough of losing his tools and equipment to theft, damage, and hoarding. With no off-the-shelf solutions available, Don developed ToolWatch, the industry’s first tool and equipment tracking software solution.

Over the years, Don and co-founder Denise Shelton have expanded ToolWatch from an asset tracking system to a comprehensive construction operations management platform. The goal of ToolWatch has always been to help its customers run their businesses more efficiently, more cost-effectively, and more profitably, and that's a commitment Don and Denise have honored since the company was founded over 30 years ago.
