Whatever your requirements and budget are, we have a tool inventory management system for you. ToolHound has released the latest generation in its tool and equipment tracking software to take advantage of new technologies. ToolHound 5 has all the functionality that ToolHound customers have come to depend on. ToolHound 5 is a web-based inventory control software solution available in a client-hosted or ToolHound-hosted environment. 

In its most basic form, the ToolHound inventory management system operates similar to a library to facilitate the quick and accurate check out and return of tools, equipment and consumables from your tool room.

ToolHound 5 Onsite — A client-hosted browser application with a powerful backend database designed for companies who want to host multiple locations and assets. 

ToolHound 5 Cloud — The same great features as ToolHound 5 Onsite but hosted and managed by ToolHound to reduce your upfront and continuing internal IT costs.
