Over 250 Companies, Schools and Cities Rely on Timly
Is There Good Tool Software Available Free of Charge?
Many companies are struggling with rising costs. Raw materials and necessary equipment have been getting more and more expensive for years for a variety of reasons. So it is understandable that those responsible want to avoid permanent payments – for software, for example – as much as possible. However, savings should not be made at the wrong end. The working time of your employees, which is spent on the complicated operation or multiple recording of inventory in different programmes, usually costs many times more than what is paid for professional tool management software.

Freeware or open source software is a good alternative for some applications. In most cases, they do not offer the required range of functions, especially for special requirements. In addition, there is usually no support and there is always the threat of a hobby project being discontinued.
In such a case, a time-consuming data migration to a new tool software may become necessary. A tool maintenance software like Timly is permanently developed and maintained. Users regularly receive updates and new functions. In case of problems, a trained support team helps.
Inventarsoftware als Tool Management System
One of the biggest advantages of using inventory software as a tool management system is that there is no need for multiple programmes for tool management. There is a central storage location in the cloud storage provided by the provider. This also takes care of the GDPR-compliant protection of the server used. Access is then possible from PCs and laptops as well as via an optimised app for smartphones and tablets.
When an inventory item is recorded, it is tagged with a space-saving QR code. The necessary properties and information can be stored in the profile of the respective asset. These can consist of almost all conceivable categories. Examples include information such as technical data, operating instructions, maintenance instructions and dates.
The storage locations and responsible employees can also be stored in the profile of a device. In everyday use, any authorised person can then make changes. A foreman has the possibility to change responsible persons directly on the construction site, workers get maintenance dates displayed and can report defects in an uncomplicated way.
From the office, there is the option of clearly displaying the whereabouts of inventory and upcoming appointments. The profiles can be called up by scanning the QR code. In the mobile versions of the tool management software, the camera of the mobile device serves as a scanner. The digitalisation of tool management is also a consistent step on the way to Industry 4.0.
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.

Tool Management – Crafts as a Use Case
Many satisfied customers use inventory software from Timly. These come from a wide variety of sectors in industry and trade as well as from authorities and organisations. One customer from the craft sector is Schwizer Haustechnik AG from Gossau in Switzerland. The medium-sized company uses Timly primarily as tool software.
It is used to record the complete history of individual tools. Employees can reserve certain tools and document their current condition by photo when they take them over. In this way, the workshop manager has a permanent and daily updated overview of the tool inventory. Something that previously would only have been possible with a lot of effort in the context of an inventory.
Sustainable Handling of Work Equipment Thanks to Tool Management Software
Knowing the inventory, condition and whereabouts of tools and machines makes it possible to plan ahead and make long-term decisions. Machines that are unreliable or cause high maintenance costs can be identified.
