ShareMyToolbox overview

What is ShareMyToolbox?

ShareMyToolbox is a mobile-first tool inventory management and tracking system which provides field personnel with a simple way to keep track of who is responsible for tools and small equipment. Users can build their tool catalog with data import technology which allows the import of lists from Excel. To further aid setup, users can manually enter tools and manage user connections such as admin and employee users.

Designed to build accountability, ShareMyToolbox enables users to assign tools to individuals and jobs. Users can search for and locate tools by barcode scan or text search, with support for barcode scanning through the camera on users' mobile or tablet devices. Employees can accept or decline responsibility for any assigned tool from the warehouse on their phone.

With native mobile apps for iOS and Android, users have the flexibility to search for and transfer tools while out in the field, and check tool availability back in the warehouse. By marking tools as ‘unavailable’, users disable those select tools from being searched for or shared. Tool transfer information is updated in the cloud-based tool catalog automatically, providing all users with up-to-date information.

By maintaining a record of every tool transfer and acceptance, ShareMyToolbox ensures all users have central access to a complete tool history. From the web interface, users can sort, filter and group tool inventory data. ShareMyToolbox also allows users to export tool inventory or history data into Excel for analysis.

Best Tool Tracking Software I've Seen

Used weekly for less than 6 months
Reviewed 2019-04-02
Review Source: Capterra

Pros
The software is great! It provides our organization with the capability of not just having a web-based tool inventory but also the ability to track the tools in the field. I did my research before moving forward with this product and found ShareMyToolbox to be the one with the greatest ease of use, which is very important to us since we have a lot of volunteers who assist our organization and use this product. One thing that has really impressed me is the hands on technical assistance I've received from Chuck and his team. They have been so great to work with and always willing to answer questions.

Cons
I, honestly, haven't found anything I don't like yet.

It has been excellent, with great communication from the owners of SMTB.

Reduced business costs of labor, lost time, lost tools, and gained accountability to everyone in the company that utilizes tools.

Pros
It puts the accountability to the field user, which encourages all of the users to utilize the application. In a lot of tool management systems, they are used as an accounting system for the office to manage the dollars of the tools, and the locations. But, that leaves the field out of the occasion, and turns it into a housekeeping nightmare for the office and/or warehouse. With SMTB, it sets up the system to require the users to accept tools when they are delivered. Then if a tool goes missing, the person who has their name on the tool is accountable. This encourages utilization within the field by design.

Cons
The hardest thing about the software were a few system errors that I encountered early on. I also ran across a couple of things that we wanted to see implemented. However, the SMTB crew has been outstanding and promptly addressed every concern that was raised, AND implemented changes that we requested.

Good start for simple tool tracking

Used daily for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2018-04-16
Review Source: Capterra

Pros
This is for the companies that just want to track tool location and history, not asset management. Simply put if you want to know where your tool is you can locate it from the mobile app or the web interface. Great for mobile transfer of tools- from field locations. Has the ability to accept or reject the transfer. Employees can see the location of shared tools. Licensing structure is awesome. I moved from Trimble All-Trak because it was too costly for multiple users and not updated frequently. This is worth a try for those looking.

Cons
Takes a while to set up. Is not designed for large transactions and editing data is done one item at a time. The developer needs to allow the user to have more control over information and edit - delete easier. This is designed with a social attitude towards sharing tools but really could capture a larger market if they improved just a few things.

Money Goes Out-Tools Come Back

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2019-04-25
Review Source: Capterra

Besides accountability among workers, the tracking has additional customized parameters, I use "Condition" ratings to track the effective life of a tool. Enabling me to anticipate tool replacement schedules and warranty dates.

Pros
This software helps track who has a tool and even what job it's on. Tool tracking has greatly improved our tool inventory. Now each tech must scan the tools they take and are responsible for them until the tool is returned. No more, uhhhh, I don't know where that $500 tool went, wasn't me, wasn't me! Now we know who had it last.

Cons
If the tech does not confirm the loan of the tool, it goes back into the available list, and the loan out goes away. They must confirm the loan for it to register under their name.

Thanks for the great review Edward!

We have had a great experience with the roll out of this service and it has already been a great benefit our bottom line including cost, time, and prevention of frustration in the field.

Pros
Visibility of and control of all tool inventory locations. Accountability for every user that "Borrow's" a tool that pushes towards our overall goal of success.

Cons
Not much.. It has been very versatile it our environment. Multiple Check-in locations maybe? Nice part about this "Cons" section, any questions/concerns we have had, customer service has addressed in an amazing time frame! Thank you Chuck!
