Hilti already has more than 500,000 tools with ON!Track telematics tags integrated with Trackunit’s management platform, but now has added its van inventory management solution, allowing tool owners – contractors or rental companies - to remotely monitor in real time their ‘on-the-go’ inventories.

The heavy equipment management solution means that much larger equipment can also be fitted with Hilti tags and viewed on Trackunit’s platform.

Customers of both companies will have the option of viewing ON!Track tagged equipment via an app installed on Trackunit’s Marketplace, which will be visible in Trackunit Manager, its equipment management platform.

Michael Neidow, EVP of Hilti’s Construction Software Unit, said; “By seamlessly integrating Hilti ON!Track tags into Trackunit’s extensive network, we have not only enhanced the visibility and management of our tools but have also streamlined our customers’ operational experience.

“This partnership embodies our vision of creating a more connected and efficient construction industry.”

Trackunit CEO Soeren Brogaard highlighted the achievements of the partnership: “Collaboration is at the heart of progress, and our partnership with Hilti is a prime example of how industry leaders can join forces to drive meaningful change.

“Two years into this journey, we have witnessed a transformation in how construction professionals manage their tools. By opening our global Bluetooth network to Hilti On!Track and introducing our Hilti Marketplace app, we have delivered a comprehensive solution that empowers our shared customers, giving them easy access to critical tool data.”
