Two years after joining forces, Hilti and Trackunit are launching a van inventory and heavy equipment management solution that aims to deliver new automation and productivity gains for construction customers globally.
This strategic collaboration, initiated through the “Works with Trackunit” programme, has yielded significant advancements in enhancing the ON!Track digital equipment and material management solutions, says Hilti, a Liechtenstein-based provider of technologically leading products, systems, software and services to the construction industry.
“Since the inception of this partnership, not only have over half a million Hilti ON!Track tags been seamlessly integrated into Trackunit’s extensive global Bluetooth network, but a prominent construction challenge was addressed at the same time: productivity losses due to inefficient inventory management,” says a spokesman for the company. “This integration allows Hilti to offer its customers increased asset visibility of their ON!Track tools, marking a significant advancement in jobsite efficiency and productivity.”
Hilti’s new van inventory management solution, supported by Trackunit technology, allows construction companies to remotely monitor their on-the-go inventories, ensuring real-time equipment location data. Moreover, with the heavy equipment management solution, every piece of equipment, from the tiniest screwdriver to the largest excavator, can be managed on the ON!Track platform, he adds.
“Our commitment is centered around becoming the best productivity partner for our customers. By seamlessly integrating Hilti ON!Track tags into Trackunit’s extensive network, we have not only enhanced the visibility and management of our tools but have also streamlined our customers’ operational experience. This partnership embodies our vision of creating a more connected and efficient construction industry,” states Michael Neidow, EVP of Hilti’s Construction Software Unit.
Through the partnership, the companies have successfully bridged the gap between their cordless electric tools, IoT and digital equipment management solutions, offering customers a comprehensive and seamless tool management experience, says Hilti.
