Want to feel more in control of all your Milwaukee power tools and be able to manage them? Then One-Key is the perfect app for you. One-Key works via Bluetooth and syncs between your phone and tools.  Here you will be able to track the location of all your One-Key power tools and customise the setting on your power tools to get maximum productivity. You can manage your power tools by checking locations and assigning them to certain crew members when working on a job site.

One-Key Features

Tool Tracking

One-Key allows you to track the location of your tools, this is very useful when managing equipment on various job sites. If you need a certain power tool on one job site you can check if that is being used on a different job site. If not you can easily locate the power tool and get it delivered to the other job site. This saves both time and money for the construction companies as they won’t need to hire other equipment and they can locate all necessary equipment faster.

When working on job sites you can set up Geo-Fencing, this allows you to set up an invisible perimeter around any site. Whenever a tool assigned to one of your geo fences is seen outside of it, you’ll be alerted. This helps stop equipment from disappearing from job sites. You can also use this when giving a lend of one of your tools to a friend you can simply assign them to the tool.

If one of your tools goes missing you mark it as missing on your app. One-Key helps track down its location by using other people’s One-Key apps. When the missing tools get near anyone with the app on the phone you will be sent a GPS location. You can then lock your tool on the One-Key app meaning next time the thief brings the tool to within 30 feet of anyone with a One-Key app the tool will be completely locked down. The only way the tool can be reset is by its owner.

If you own power tools or hand tools that aren’t Milwaukee you can invest in ticks & barcode tags. The ticks allow you to track the location of your equipment by attaching it to the bottom of your equipment. For smaller equipment or hand tools you can use barcode tags. You can simply scan the bar code on your phone and have it added to your One-Key inventory store.
