Developed by Australian company Ray Gudgeon and Associates, ToolTrakka is a multi-user system designed to track the whereabouts of tools and equipment. It can be used by any organisation that issues tools and equipment to employees but is not classified for underground coal mine use.
ToolTrakka V6 features more streamlined barcode processing of equipment and tool check in and check out. Items can now be issued to external third party contractors as well as into containers, to employees and jobs.
ToolTrakka’s new range of barcode readers is lower in cost and each model is much smaller than the previous units, the company said.
An audit facility has been added, allowing a user to visit a job location, employee, contractor or container and scan all the items at that location. This batch of scans can then be uploaded into ToolTrakka and a report will be created showing the status of all items scanned.
The new version also allows users to manage the issue of consumables. A complete purchasing and inventory system is included to allow users to record purchases, to maintain average costs and to monitor inventory levels. Consumable items can be issued to employees, to jobs, into containers or to third party contractors.
Barcoding makes the process simple and quick for tool store staff. ToolTrakka was developed in Australia and is supported locally. The program is in use in large construction companies, mining companies, mineral processing plants and electrical contractors.
