How Inventory Software Optimises Your Tool Tracking
Tools and machines form a considerable part of a company’s capital. Effective tool management requires having an up-to-date overview of important key data:
➟ What tools and material are in circulation?
➟ Where is the tool?
➟ To which employee is it assigned?
➟ In what condition is the inventory?
When are individual tools, machines or vehicles not available?
➟ For which machines is maintenance due?

Timly can answer all the important questions about the inventory at the touch of a button. Integrated tools such as the maintenance planner and an optional GPS location function also help with scheduling. Even the loan of equipment to subcontractors or other companies can be documented with the inventory software and invoiced later. In addition to smart disposition, it is also crucial that it is in proper condition and, for example, that necessary maintenance work has been carried out.
Inventory software like Timly simplifies and optimises central tool management in your company. It gives you a permanent overview of all tool data and machines, including current locations of use and personally responsible employees. Statistical evaluation options are provided in tool management for long-term planning. These can be an important decision-making aid when it comes to making strategic decisions for the future.
Over 400 Companies, Schools and Cities Rely on Timly
The simple handling also generates acceptance among the own employees. Customised and meaningful entry categories can be created for each item to be recorded. This makes it possible to inventory a wide variety of assets. This meets the requirements of almost every conceivable industry, from companies in machining manufacturing to logistics service providers. The recorded items receive a space-saving sticker with a QR code. Afterwards, it is possible to call up the profile of a device by simply scanning the code.
Depending on the authorisations, for example, to call up operating instructions and maintenance information, to change the current user or to report a defect. To be able to use mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets, Timly offers a special app. The device’s camera is used as a QR code scanner. Input and output areas of the app are designed for convenient mobile use.
Digital Tool Management in Practice
Timly is a young and innovative company. In a very short time, our inventory software has already proven itself in many different sectors. For example, the public administration in Remseck and Ludwigshafen and the district office in Rosenheim rely on Timly. Likewise, numerous manufacturing industrial companies such as Siemens and Sodastream as well as the logistics company Fiege are among our satisfied customers.
The software’s particular strength can be seen in the skilled trades and in the construction industry. There are hardly any constellations where high-value inventory is so frequently exposed to different workplaces, where moreover usually an unclear number of people have access. For this reason, several operators of large construction sites have already decided to consistently use inventory software.
At the large construction site Berner Bahnhof, for example, the executing consortium, consisting of the companies Kibag, Wirz, Walo and Kästli, uses Timly for tool management. According to feedback from those involved, the selection has proved very successful there.
Many processes in companies have already been optimised over the years. Nevertheless, it is not uncommon to find that there is still room for improvement at certain points. A modern tool management with software from Timly can be another building block.
Through the documentation in the Timly tool tracking software, we manage to see exactly which company has used which machine and for how long, and can then invoice this. This allows us to work more cost-efficiently.
