A tool tracking app saving thousands for its 10,000+ users.

Share My Toolbox

The US construction industry is subject to widespread asset losses, with tools and equipment lost due to theft, mismanagement, and lack of accountability creating enormous cost implications for companies. 

The team behind ShareMyToolbox partnered with Shout to develop an enterprising tool tracking app that would solve this expensive, industry-wide problem while providing the basis for a profitable digital business model.

The Challenge.

 

  • The team wanted to present its business offering in a way that was relevant, practical – and user-friendly. Their goal was to create a product that provided an excellent user experience for everyone, from on-site workers in the field to head office logistics and resource managers.

  • Most existing systems on the market were taking a centralised inventory approach to checking a company's tools in and out. This approach relied on the company's warehouse manager and needed a response that circumvented this approach..

The Solution.

 

We developed an intuitive mobile app that was for use by employees in the field, with  sophisticated yet highly accurate, multi-platform monitoring system allowing companies to track every tool in their business with ease.

The ShareMyToolbox app uses the latest technologies in the mobile and cloud computing space to offer real-time tracking, sharing, and management of entire company inventories of tools and equipment.

The mobile app makes tracking and tracing the whereabouts of tens of thousands of tools simple. It provides field visibility into a company's full tool catalogue – and as a result, makes company employees more accountable for their toolbox contents.

“From the outset, Shout delivered a properly thought-out discovery process holding workshops with a wide dimension of potential users to ensure the delivery of an outstanding user and visitor experience. The UX and UI experience when entering the platform is one of the best I have ever seen, and I still reference it today.”

The Outcome.

 

  • In less than 36 months ShareMyToolbox was in use by over 10,000 users across three continents.

  • ShareMyToolbox companies on average reduce tool loss by 48%.

  • ShareMyToolbox companies report an average savings of 21 hours per week by managing tools more efficiently. This includes warehouse administrators and field personnel searching, finding and transferring tools.
