If you feel like you’re throwing money away, software tool tracking can make a profound difference to your bottom line.
Utility companies, contractors, and oil and gas companies all depend on tools and equipment to survive. With technicians and staff in locations throughout the world, tracking these vital tools can be an extremely difficult, inefficient and error-prone process – not to mention expensive. The opportunities for theft and loss are significant. Many companies are in a constant mode of buying tools that vanish and then require replacement. When items need to be located, without a good method of software tool tracking in place, your employees will spin their wheels trying to hunt down those tools. Your productivity takes a nosedive while frustration levels peak. It’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
If you’re in the field, how do you request the materials you need to get the job done – especially if you run out of a critical item mid-project? Does work have to come to a halt while you wait?
Back at the warehouse, how does your staff keep track of maintenance schedules for your equipment? Are deliveries processed smoothly and without error? Do they know what your quantities are at any given time, so they don’t run out of critical items? Can tools be transferred easily between locations?
And, in the office, how do you monitor the distribution and inventory of tools throughout your entire organization? Do you know how much you spent last year on your equipment and tools, and how much you’ll need to budget for next year? Do you have tools sitting idle at one location while another location waits for the tools they need? Are you able to pull depreciation figures for your equipment?
