This is where itemit comes in. itemit is an affordable solution which will help you track your tools and equipment, ensuring you lose fewer assets, and that the status of your assets is always known.

 

Tracking small tools

 

What is Small Tool Tracking Software?

Small tool tracking software is a system where you can log, view, and manage all of your tools. Small tools have a tendency to get lost, misplaced, or damaged, and knowing specifically what’s happening with your tools helps save you time and money.

You’ll be able to use small tool tracking software for construction equipment, office tools, anything! As itemit is customisable, you’ll be able to tailor the system to your needs.

The way the system works is by using unique, digital profiles which double up for your assets. In other words, if you have a spanner, you’ll be able to log a digital copy of this spanner.

Then, you’ll be able to add all the relevant data you need to this digital copy, such as financial information, maintenance information, inspection dates, and attachments, such as receipts and warranties.

 

Asset Tagging And Tracking

These digital copies can be linked to your physical tools and equipment, too. We recommend using QR codes over barcodes, as you can guarantee that QR codes are unique.

These QR code asset tags are stuck onto your equipment and linked to your asset tracking app by scanning the tag. Now, every time you scan the tag in the system, the asset’s profile will appear, ready for edits and updates.

So, for example, if you notice some of your equipment has been damaged, you’ll be able to scan the asset tag to retrieve the asset’s profile, where you’ll then be able to log the damage.

Tagging and Tracking with QR Code Asset Tags

Every scan of an asset’s tag also updates the asset’s last seen location, meaning you’ll create a neat audit trail of where all of your assets have been.

How To Use Small Tool Tracking Software Data

All of this data comes together on itemit’s reporting feature. Any changes or updates are logged and viewable in itemit, and you’ll be able to create customisable and exportable reports to send to any relevant teams.

Overall, these reports are helpful when you’re monitoring when maintenance is due, who is responsible for which assets, and which equipment is checked out.

Then, you’ll be able to use this data for insurance and finance purposes to ensure that you don’t have any missing assets or assets that haven’t been accounted for in a while.
