Tool Planning. When planning work orders, tools can be attached. Attaching tools to a work order ensures workers know exactly what will be needed for the repair, and where it is located. Planning tools ahead of repairs helps make sure the repair is completed in a more timely manner.
Tool Maintenance. Tool Control makes it possible for users to write work orders and preventive maintenance (PM) tasks on a tool. Performing regular maintenance on tools can extend their lifetime, and save your company money.
Tool Tracking. Knowing where critical tools are at all times is essential. That’s why MAPCON Tool Control allows users to see where the tool is, and the status of it. This feature also shows which employee had the tool last, which can be useful if a tool goes missing.
Cost Tracking. Track repair costs on tools with Tool Control. Users can also see the total cost of repairs during the lifetime of a tool, which can help determine if it is more cost-effective to purchase a new tool, or keep repairing it.
History Retention. Tracking the repair history on a tool can be useful for setting up and scheduling regular PMs. By analyzing when a tool needs repairs and scheduling PMs beforehand, downtime and expenditures can be reduced.
Mobile Integration. Pairing Tool Control with MAPCON Mobile makes it even easier to check in and check out tools. Since workers can use their smartphone or tablet, a tool can be checked in or out right from the floor.
Barcode Integration. Our barcode module makes the check-in/check-out process even easier. Users can simply scan the tool, and the necessary information for the tool will come up. This can help eliminate data entry errors.
