Field App Offers Field Requisition Functionality
Streamlining the process to get equipment, materials, and tools to a jobsite can save critical resources on a job. To help speed the requisition process, ToolWatch, www.toolwatch.com, Englewood, Colo., has announced the release of a new version of its ToolWatch Field App that includes field requisition functionality.
“The ability to submit concise and accurate requisitions for equipment, tools, and materials to the warehouse from the jobsite with just a few taps on a smartphone or tablet will save field teams a significant amount of time,” remarks Don Kafka, founder and present, ToolWatch.
ToolWatch Field App communicates information directly to the provider of equipment, tool, and materials management systems’ ToolWatch Enterprise system, which provides powerful analytics, costing, and reporting capability.
“From tool tracking and management in the field, to warehouse operations, to financial analysis and reporting in the backoffice, ToolWatch Enterprise helps our clients excel in all phases of resource management,” comments Ron Fish, product manager, ToolWatch.
He says the Field Requisition capability makes the communication between field and warehouse staff even more seamless.
The new Field Requisitions feature provides: One-touch requesting of equipment, tools, and materials; auto-generated warehouse pick tickets; draft capability for compiling a list before submitting; and requisition status monitoring right from a user’s device.
“Profitability in the construction, public utilities, and oil and gas industries is driven by productivity,” observes Kafka. “With Field Requisitions, the savings across a large group of users can equate to hours each month—time that was previously spent filling out tedious paper forms or typing up email requests. Using that time to get more work done will pay huge dividends.”
