Tracking Tools & Equipment with QR Codes

If you work in the construction business, either as a builder or engineer, you know how important and pricey your tools and equipment can be. Unfortunately, so do thieves.

Each year, it’s reported that up to $1 billion in equipment and tools can be stolen from construction companies. Not only does this hurt your company’s budget, it can also prevent you from completing your projects in a timely manner. Because of this, it’s important to keep track of all of your tools and equipment.

Keeping track of tools and equipment can be difficult, especially when you have crews working at different construction sites. A great way you can track these items is by adding a customized QR tag on each tool. These QR tags can then be scanned on site, effectively keeping track of where each piece of equipment is being used.

In addition to tracking tools and equipment, personalized QR tags can also help give managers and workers important information such as warranties or maintenance records. This can help ensure that all of your equipment is well cared for and functioning properly.

The following infographic gives you more details on how personalized QR codes can be used to help track your tools and equipment.
