Why You Need A Construction Tool Tracking App

A construction tool tracking app allows you to monitor your business’ critical tools and equipment. With a helpful range of features, you’ll be able to mark assets that are available for use, track interactions with them, and view their location history.

Overall, what a construction tool tracking app gives you is more accountability, transparency, and control over your assets. This way, you’ll be able to save time and money on your existing operations, as well as lose fewer assets and get the most use possible out of your tools.

How Does Equipment Management Software Work?


How Does A Construction Tool Tracking App Work?

A construction tool tracking app allows you to log unique profiles of your assets. In other words, each of your spanners will have a unique profile that you’ll be able to add data to.

This data may include maintenance information and dates, who is responsible for the asset, and financial information related to the asset. Tools and equipment tracking is simple and effective this way, as you can have a granular view of your assets’ usage.

Then, you’ll be able to use asset tags to monitor the location of your assets. Every time you scan an asset’s tag, the asset’s profile will open, ready for you to start editing and adding information. When this happens, the asset’s last seen location and the user who scanned the asset will also update.


GPS Asset Tracking

There are a couple of ways to use GPS asset tracking when you’re implementing construction equipment tracking. The first way is using the last seen location functionality via scanning asset tags. 

The last seen location pulls in your phone’s GPS data. This way, you’ll be able to see where the user who scanned the tag was when the tag was scanned and, therefore, where the interaction with the asset took place.

Then, you can also implement GPS tracking using GPS trackers. GPS trackers periodically update their location and interact with your construction tool tracking system this way.

Therefore, if you have a large site, or if assets frequently move sites, you’ll be able to tag them using GPS tags to monitor this. We’d recommend saving this for heavy tools and equipment tracking, as GPS trackers are generally quite large and robust.
