Dynamic Systems Inc., a Redmond, Washington, software developer specializing in data collection applications, has announced the launch of a new kitting program for the construction and restoration industry that is based on using bar code technology.
DSI has announced the Kitting Manager, targeted for companies who need to reduce the loss of tools and save time tracking down equipment. The kitting addition allows individually separate but related classes of items to be grouped as one unit. This lets the user check out items such as tools, equipment and consumables to areas such as job sites, trucks, departments, personnel, or other user-designated locations designate in one transaction.
If it requires only minutes checking multiple items into a “kit,” and if the company’s staff spends even 20 minutes a day searching tools or servicing equipment, the overhead savings is dramatic. “Loss of tools and malfunctioning equipment is a major overhead cost for the construction industry. Our customers see a typical payback for the Tool Manager within 3-4 months,” states Alison Falco, president of Dynamic Systems.
Supplying the construction industry with tracking solutions since 1981, DSI provides bar code systems that track tools and equipment, documents, capital assets, inventory and job tracking. Using advanced bar code data collection systems has been proven to be the most accurate and efficient method of tracking or counting items.
