Using A Construction Tool Tracking App

Using A Construction Tool Tracking App

Do you work in construction? Are you or your team members tired of wasting hours of your work time just trying to figure out where a drill machine is or who took the angle grinder? It’s time you got a construction tool tracking app.

Tool-intensive industries such as construction involve a lot of unnecessary hassle just to locate tools, especially when a particular piece of equipment is being used by multiple members. When employees work in shifts, a worker might often spend the first part of their work time just trying to find where the last shift workers left a tool.

All such tool-related inconveniences will come to a halt if you use itemit’s construction tool tracking app. Continue reading to find out how to use this app and how its features help you save a lot of time and money.

Why You Need Construction Equipment Asset Management Tools

What Does itemit’s Construction Tool Tracking App Do?

A tool tracking app lets you build a sophisticated register for all your tools. The asset register records each tool in an asset profile which stores essential details like the tool’s name, image, assignee, location and purchase and warranty details. Essentially, it lets you store every bit of useful information about a tool in a neat, streamlined, and cloud-based platform.

Because all tool data is stored online, multiple team members can access the tool register from the itemit app on their smartphones or via the web. This allows for effective collaboration between workers so that minimum time is wasted on finding misplaced tools. Let’s talk about the different features this app offers.

Location Tracking

Using asset tags makes tool tracking even more efficient. Whenever you scan an asset tag with the construction tool tracking app, the app automatically identifies the tool and brings forward its asset profile. This saves you the bother of foraging through the tool register. But that’s not all. Scanning an asset tag also updates the location of the tool automatically. 

The location then appears on the asset profile as ‘Last seen at’ and can be viewed by other users too. So if you want to find an asset, just check for its last seen location and it will instantly narrow down your search.

Check In Check Out

This is another amazing feature itemit has to offer. When a worker is taking a piece of equipment with them, they can simply scan the tool, and mark ‘check out’ on its asset profile. This lets managers know what tool has been checked out by whom.

Similarly, the tool can be ‘checked in’ via the tracking app when it’s brought back. If the check in check out feature is used with discipline and consistency, it upgrades your asset security and reduces the chances of asset misappropriation and misplacement to the bare minimum.


If your construction company gives a set of tools to every employee, and those tools are not usually shared between workers, you can assign tools to respective workers with the assignee feature. When you open an asset profile for a tool, you can easily assign it to a worker using the assign button.

Assigning tools to employees makes them directly responsible for handling them and keeping them safe. It also instils a sense of accountability which is good for workplace productivity.

Maintenance Reminders

Construction tools often require a lot of maintenance work. You can make sure that all tools your company owns stay well-maintained with reminders. For instance, if some equipment needs maintenance you can set up a reminder on its asset profile so that the next user makes sure the maintenance is carried out before using the tool.
