Summary: ToolHound partners with DeWalt, a manufacturer of premium power and hand tools used in construction, manufacturing, and other industries. The merging of technology provided by both companies will allow users to track the location of tools and equipment. Both companies are proud of this new partnership and believe it will add value to any organization or industry wishing to improve its services and productivity.
Alberta, CA, December 16, 2021 – Already known for its equipment and tool management software, ToolHound believes this latest partnership will make it even easier for project managers and workers to keep track of assets, including tools and equipment. When used in concert with the new ToolHound 6 application, these technologies can help industries eliminate the permanent or temporary loss of assets workers need to complete their job duties on time.
When using the new ToolHound 6 asset management software with DeWalt’s Tool Connect Bluetooth technology, you can now discover the current location of your equipment and tools. ToolHound users can swiftly and accurately see where DeWalt Tool Connect tools are located. Tools from other manufacturers can also be tracked when equipped with Tool Connect tags.
ToolHound 6 software seamlessly interfaces with DeWalt Site Manager, providing you with true hands-off tracking to:
- Uncover the current or last recorded location of items or assets equipped with Tool Connect tags
- Display the location of these items on a map
- Automatically add items in DeWalt’s Site Manager to your ToolHound software
- Automatically transfer tools and equipment, along with their associated billing, from job site to job site
Note: For the mapping technology to function, the tool (or tag) must be within reading distance (approximately 100 feet) of an asset gateway or a mobile device that is running the Tool Connect Site Manager.
