Dewalt’s new Jobsite WiFi System was just announced in a live stream led by by Tony Nicolaidis, Dewalt’s VP of Connected Systems, and Procore, leaders in construction management software.
The WiFi “Tool Connect” is Dewalt’s three-part inventory management solution, to “connect, track and customize your tools across multiple jobsites.” With the mobile app, this new technology has been designed to increase connectivity and improve asset management on the jobsite. It’s also a “closed system,” for added security.
According to the brief press release we received, “data from the mobile app will automatically update into your Inventory Manager portal at the office or tool crib to give you real-time information.”
In 2018, Dewalt will be launching a Construction IoT platform that will integrate sensors to give real-time data and will be built into the core Dewalt cordless drills.
