Tool Watch & Tracking
Tool watch and tracking has never been more important in construction. Keeping watch over small tools and equipment can be challenging for any size contractor. Thankfully new technology and tool trackers are making this easier.
The video below shows an older version of our tool tracker application. Please visit our current video demonstration page to see our latest tracking app.
Keep watch on your Tools!
There are many ways to watch tools. There are also many tool watch and tool tracker software systems in the market today. ShareMyToolbox is different in that we are focused not on the process of scanning tools out from the warehouse to an employee. Instead, we are focused on enabling field personnel to transfer tools between each other. Certainly ShareMyToolbox can be used to assign small tools and equipment from the warehouse to employees. However, ShareMyToolbox is not an inventory system. It is a mobile tracking system that happens to maintain an inventory of small tools. Watching tools in the field is what this app was designed to do. If you need a simple tool tracker app read on!
Consider using this product if you need to:
- Reduce tools “walking away” by assigning responsibility easily
- Make it easier for field personnel to locate a tool they need
- Make it easier for field people to buy fewer duplicate items by sharing more
- Quickly assign responsibility for tools to the field personnel who are using the tools
- Maintain an updated inventory of all tools
Tools are usually lost as they move from person to person or job to job in the field. Since your tools are mobile the software you use to track tools also needs to be mobile. The key to reducing tool loss is tracking the movement of tools from person to person.
“Build a culture of responsibility and the accounting for tools works itself out.” -Chuck Elyea
Most tool tracking systems operate like an accounting or inventory system, with a “check-in and check-out” approach to managing tools. ShareMyToolbox’s tool tracking app is different. It is built for the field first. It is built to help the field take responsibility for tools and the inventory in the office uses is a by product.

Tool Trackers Must Be Mobile
In modern construction companies a good tool tracker needs to be as mobile as the workers using it. In order to keep watch over small tools and small equipment a mobile tool tracker on your phone is the best option.
