Hilti and Trackunit have announced a strategic partnership to advance digital transformation in the construction industry. The companies are teaming up to improve asset management while bringing global scale to the tool and equipment connectivity domain.
The Hilti Group supplies the worldwide construction and energy industries with technologically advanced products, systems, software, and services. Together with Trackunit, an expert in fleet-management services, Hilti is now able to strengthen its ON!Track solution.
ON!Track offers dedicated asset-management software to control things such as tools, equipment, and job-site components, etc. This new partnership will allow Hilti to expand its ON!Track solution beyond light equipment to also cover heavy machinery, while creating an innovative solution for van inventory management for all customer categories in the construction industry.
At the same time, the Trackunit platform will be enriched with additional tool-related data. The partnership also seeks to expand the ever-growing network of Trackunit devices, providing increased connectivity around the globe through advanced Bluetooth technology. It enables the industry to detect tags on smaller tools and equipment, capture insights from tool and equipment data and offer an integrated customer experience across platforms.
Data insights are now being made available across the two platforms in real time, so that tools registered in Hilti’s ON!Track system can be viewed on the Trackunit platform.
“Connectivity is rapidly changing our industry,” shared Michael Neidow, EVP at Hilti and Head of the Tool Services Business Unit. “Through this unique partnership, we are excited to leverage our joint expertise to also further connect tools, machinery, and service vans around construction sites in the near future — ultimately providing customers with innovative and integrated solutions that improve productivity and profitability.”
