The Challenge: Managing the Assignment and Issue of Devices Digitally and Traceably

Timly bei Schwizer Haustechnik AG in Gossau
Schwizer Haustechnik AG has been managing its work equipment and vehicles with the Timly inventory software since mid-2021

The management of the work equipment is an important issue because of the different locations and the number of employees. In 2021, the company decided to modernise and optimise these processes. The result: Schwizer Haustechnik AG now manages its equipment with Timly in order to save time and money and to maintain an overview.

Previously, there was no digital recording of machines, tools and vehicles at Schwizer Haustechnik. Magnets were pushed back and forth by hand on a printed list in the tool cabinet door. This served to allocate the equipment to the individual employees. Every now and then a magnet fell down and nobody knew where the devices were anymore. – A very unpleasant and time-consuming problem.

Outdated processes therefore had to be replaced in order to simplify inventory and simplify daily workflows, such as the issuing of devices. A digital, contemporary method of inventory management should accomplish this. The decision quickly fell on Timly’s inventory software.

“Timly convinced us from the start.”

The Solution: Mobile Digital Device Management With a Defect Reporting System

Reliable App for Central & Mobile Device Management

What was and is important for Schwizer Haustechnik AG – compared to the previous magnet system – is reliability and that all information about the devices is stored centrally. With the Timly Inventory App, the relevant data can now be conveniently accessed from anywhere using a smartphone. Employees access the database while on the go and look for a specific device. Or they scan an existing machine directly with their QR code scanner on their cell phone.

The availability of a work equipment can thus be checked quickly. It is then reserved or handed out to the respective employee in an uncomplicated manner. Each device issue is historically documented, as are any defects or maintenance that have occurred in the Maintenance Planner.

Who has the desired device, what condition is it in and where did they take it? – With Timly, the warehouse coordinator, Mr. Nathan Mayer, always has an exact overview and a detailed depiction of all inventory processes.

Assignment of User Roles & Rights

The Timly Inventory software makes it easy to define who is responsible for what, or who can see what information. This is also an important function for Schwizer Haustechnik AG. Everyone only sees what they need and the distribution of tasks is also clearly regulated.
