Working in conjunction with SIMMS Online, SIMMS’ Tool Crib software allows workers to check out and return tools and equipment using a simple-to-use web-based application and barcode reader.
Workers scan their ID Card badge to start the process and then scan the item barcode and/or item serial number of the item(s) they are using. The worker next confirms that the list matches their inventory and proceeds to then chooses whether they are checking out or returning inventory. Each and every time that item is “checked out” or “checked in” the transactions are recorded in your system, time-stamped, attributed to the user allowing you to see who performed the transactions, when and why.
With Tool Crib, you can:
• Enhance chain-of-custody tracking
• Increase visibility of tools and equipment status and location
• Improve productivity and employee efficiency by allowing tool crib attendants to focus on more important tasks
• Read multiple tool tags per transaction resulting in faster transactions
• Reduced tool crib labor costs
Using a comprehensive tool, location, serial number and employee database, coupled with a simple and accurate bar code based transaction system, Tool Crib software tracks the issue and return of assets to employees and contractors, and the transfer of assets between various warehouse, job-site and tool room locations even fleet vehicles. You can easily manage your tool and equipment inventory using scanner and bar code technology, enabling workers to quickly get and return the tools they require with or without a tool crib attendant while still keeping the employee accountable for them.
