Technology company Trimble today introduced the Trimble AllTrak Asset Management System for contractors to manage their construction equipment and tools.

With accurate tracking information about asset usage, contractors can increase their efficiency while confidently managing acquisition, maintenance and eventual retirement of their tools, equipment, and other portable assets, Trimble said.

Construction contractors invest thousands of dollars annually on buying, renting and servicing their tools and equipment. Trimble AllTrak increases the return on their investment by improving asset utilization and monitoring equipment to avoid loss or misplacement.

The Trimble AllTrak system leverages the wireless connectivity and barcode scanning capabilities of the Trimble Nomad controller. Using the Trimble Nomad and Trimble AllTrak Mobile software, tool crib managers can perform essential transactions such as check-in, check-out, transfers and additions from anywhere.

This advanced tracking information is particularly useful for managing rental tools and equipment and prorating costs. Users can set up visual and email reminder alerts for rental return dates and track total rental cost versus asset value ratios.

Users can also produce accurate real-time reports to identify inventory that is under-utilized, at the end of its life cycle, costing money or making money.
