The answer is a simple app which allows field personnel to search, find and transfer tools from their phone.

Trust but Verify
Tools are stolen, lost and broken way too often in construction. While nobody can completely stop breakage, we can reduce it dramatically with a good mobile tool tracker app. Even a small increase in field personnel feeling accountable for tools will deliver a big decrease in tool costs. Reducing tool loss saves tens of thousands of dollars in tool purchases at most contractors.
Responsibility for tools can be improved by:
- Giving each field person an easy to access list of what everyone is responsible for.
- Require each person to “accept” each tool assigned in order to build responsibility.
- Make it easy for field people to transfer responsibility for a tool while in the field.
If the company doesn’t care about tools why would employees? The first step to protect a tool inventory is to get it organized.
Setup a tool tracker list in a cloud system using a laptop or desktop computer and then make that inventory available to mobile users through an app. Either type the tool list in or import a list from Microsoft Excel. Keep the list up to date using an app to add to the list as new tools are purchased. As each employee checks tools in and out, the app updates the list in real time. All from the phone and tablets already in use at the company.
