Dynamic Systems, Inc., has announced the release of a low-cost tool manager program based on bar code technology.

“Basic Tool Manager” is targeted for contractors who want to reduce the loss of tools and save time tracking down tools for the jobs. If it requires one minute checking a tool out or in, and if your staff spends even 20 minutes a day searching for tools, the overhead savings is dramatic.

“Loss and theft of tools is a major overhead cost (estimated at over $1 billion a year) for the construction and manufacturing industry. Our customers see a typical payback for the Tool Manager within 3-4 months,” states Alison Falco, president of Dynamic Systems.
