Milwaukee® Introduces Integrated Tool Tracking with all ONE-KEY™ Tools.

INTEGRATED TOOL TRACKING UTILISES SAME TOOL-BASED TECHNOLOGY THAT DELIVERS UNLIMITED TOOL CUSTOMISATION IN OUR COMPATIBLE M18 FUEL™ LINE*, AND TIME-BASED PERFORMANCE TRACKING IN OUR M18™ FORCE LOGIC™ CRIMPERS. AVAILABLE IN EVERY ONE-KEY™ ENABLED TOOL, INTEGRATED TOOL TRACKING IS A FREE-TO-USE UPDATE TO THE ONE-KEY™ APP WHICH ALLOWS USERS TO IDENTIFY THE LOCATION AND TIME A TOOL IS SEEN BY ANYONE IN THE ONE-KEY™ SYSTEM.

Integrated Tool Tracking provides full visibility to how and where ONE-KEY™ compatible tools are being used across your network of jobs and users. The ONE-KEY™ app will automatically keep records of the last time it was within 30 m of your tool, allowing you to pinpoint missing tools quicker and increase accountability of your team. As the first to integrate this technology standard in the tool, ONE-KEY™ Tool Tracking provides a free, easy to use web & mobile platform to keep a virtual eye on your things when you can’t. So how does this work?

  • The ONE-KEY™ app will track all compatible tools within 30 m range of your phone. By building the functionality into the tool, not the battery, all tools are trackable even if the battery is not charged or connected.
  • The ONE-KEY™ app will automatically store the last time it was within range of your tool. If you leave a tool behind you can check your app to easily pinpoint the last location and time you were within 30 m of that missing tool.
  • If you have lost a tool, you can expand your search with the help of anybody with the ONE-KEY™ app. By opting in, when any phone with the ONE-KEY™ app comes in within 30 m of your tool, you will receive a notification with an updated location via phone or email.

Tool Tracking leverages the infrastructure of your smart device, forgoing costly tracking technology to deliver real-time updates of tool locations anywhere the ONE-KEY™ app is found.

Available for initial download in April 2016, ONE-KEY™ app update will be accessible by computer from our website at www.milwaukeetool.eu/ONE-KEY, or by a mobile app interface on compatible Android and iOS smartphones. ONE-KEY™ is a true testament to Milwaukee®’s focus on the user and investment in game changing technology.
