Hilti North America, an innovator of tools and technology, has enhanced its tool and asset tracking solution ON!Track, making it easier for component suppliers and construction professionals to manage their businesses, assets, and job sites.
As an Internet of Things (IoT) platform, ON!Track Generation 3.0 is now a software solution that provides instant clarity and efficiency to the business, while helping reduce operational and overhead costs.
“Through the changes in technology and listening to the feedback from our customers, we have improved ON!Track in every area,” said Thibaud Lefebvre, director of Marketing Tool Services of Hilti North America.
Lefebvre added: “Our customers will experience an integrated cloud-based solution that provides a new level of control and access to information. We’re putting more data-driven insights in their hands so they can make better, safer decisions.”
With Hilti’s “smart” sensor tags and proactive tracking gateways, construction professionals have access to continuous and reliable tracking of all tagged assets in warehouses and containers. The enhanced sensor tags will deliver transparency on how, when, and, where assets are used, while the new proactive tracking gateways enable remote inventory checks and automated reporting.
The system was also improved to better track and manage tool accessories, which considerably simplifies the management of stocks and supplies.
Hilti has also upgraded ON!Track 3.0 to help strengthen the control of costs and expenses. Customers can manage jobsite asset costs with cost reporting they customize by specific asset, job, and time. By setting up a daily cost per asset, construction companies can run a costing report for any date range and find out what the cost of their assets are at any location.
Additionally, this connected system was advanced to support one the most critical functions of construction businesses. Workers can easily access service, maintenance, and certification records and set alerts on their mobile device to help them stay compliant.
“There’s no question that construction is a uniquely document-intensive industry,” said Lefebvre. “Our customers want instant access to documentation. Now they can pull that up from their phone and show whoever might need to see it that they are compliant.”
The software is only part of the tool and asset tracking solution. Hilti also offers implementation, training and support to customers in their process of digitizing the management of their equipment. In the last five years, Hilti North America has project-managed more than 2,000 ON!Track implementations.
Hilti’s expertise covers the areas of powder actuated fastening, drilling and demolition, cutting, measuring, screw fastening, adhesive and mechanical anchoring, strut and hanger systems, solutions for tool crib productivity, as well as worker health and safety.
