Improve Productivity, Efficiency with New Equipment Tracking Tool
- - Efficiently automates the equipment inventory tracking process
- - Helps increase worker productivity and reduces tools left behind on the job
- - Designed for profit-minded business owners
Walled Lake, Mich., July 16, 2012— Landscape crews are designed to run like clockwork. From loading a trailer to on-time departure to completing a job in the quoted time, worker efficiency is key to overall company profitability.
The best schedules can go awry when crews get to the job site and find they are missing a backpack blower, string trimmer or miter saw. Time is lost as a worker drives back to the shop to pick up the missing tool.
Having the right equipment and tools is essential for any landscape crew, and crews will inevitably forget them at the shop or on the job site. However, those headaches can be eliminated with a new equipment inventory tracking program from Invisi-Tag.
Invisi-Tag specializes in mobile equipment inventory systems using exclusive radio frequency technology to tag, inventory and track equipment. Equipment is tagged and recorded by job, crew and trailer. Once the trailer is loaded, the foreman can run a check from his smart phone or tablet (i.e. Google Nexus S, or Samsung Galaxy tablet) and quickly see if all of the equipment is on board. The same process can be performed before leaving a job site.
"Human error can be a huge source of lost productivity. Invisi-Tag can eliminate this source of frustration by running a quick scan," said Aminur Rahman, senior engineer for Invisi-Tag. "Through Invisi-Tag's unique software that can be loaded on any mobile device, crews can see an automated checklist detecting all the equipment that should be loaded onto the trailer."
Durable tags are positioned on each piece of equipment in an inconspicuous location. One system is used per truck or trailer and each driver is responsible for tracking their own equipment.Invisi-Tag is user friendly and is just as simple as using an application on your smart phone. Plus, there is no monthly service charge.
