Inventory and Tool Tracking Software

    We are a general contractor that still self performs a bit of concrete, carpentry and light steel erection. We have a large un-organized yard and warehouse. I'm looking to cut waste and improve efficiency through inventory tracking. Basically I see no reason to order material and tools that we already have; problem is that we don't know that we have it. Do y'all have any recommendations for software solutions. The ideal solution would be a barcode style that can be read with iphones as opposed to scanners. We want something simple and cost effective. Open to any and all suggestions.


    Thank you,

    Hi Scott,

    We just signed up for asset panda after using Toolwatch for years. It has more uses than just tool tracking and is relatively inexpensive.

    We just implemented Asset Tiger.  It is a cloud based program that also has an app for phones.  If you buy enough labels they do not charge for the software.

    If you have any questions, shoot me an email.

    Tool tracking and inventory tracking seem similar but have a lot of differences. For tools, check out, created by CFMA members including a past ICCIFP chairman. I'm not affiliated with the company but have tested the product.
