New web interface released for ToolWatch platform

A fully web-based user experience has been released by ToolWatch for its construction asset and operations management platform.

This development makes the full ToolWatch platform accessible from any device and includes a redesigned user interface, and will support faster and more innovative enhancements in the future, according to the company.

“Our customers will find ToolWatch’s web interface to be faster, easier to use and simpler to maintain, and it will allow us to develop and deploy exciting new features with faster timelines,” says Jay Martin, CEO from ToolWatch.

Web-based user experiences allow access to the full ToolWatch platform from any device.ToolWatchCurrently available through a desktop app, mobile app, and web login, the ToolWatch platform now provides function-specific portals for warehouse, field, and back office workers. ToolWatch web portals also feature new consumer-grade interface designs, as well as in-product support in Spanish in addition to English.

The expansion of the web portal comes weeks after ToolWatch acquired Safety Reports Inc., a mobile safety management platform, which expanded the company’s reach to include environmental health and safety, management risk and compliance reports.

“The combination of these two organizations supports ToolWatch’s mission to offer a comprehensive suite of software solutions that meet the diverse needs of construction companies, enabling our customers to improve operational efficiency in a safe and compliant manner,” Martin said.

By bringing security reports and ToolWatch together, customers will gain a deeper view of their organizations’ performance, including workplace safety and reduced time wasted due to security breaches, the company says.

“We have an aggressive innovation schedule planned for 2022,” says Don Kafka, who founded ToolWatch 30 years ago, “and we believe moving the ToolWatch suite to a fully web-based platform will help go a long way to streamlining construction operations from the field, from the warehouse to the back office and improving the results of our customers.”

The web platform is accessible on any device with a web browser. ToolWatch’s mobile apps for warehouse and field personnel will remain available to continue providing scanning and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) capabilities.
