New strategy to reduce loss of construction tools and equipment

Dynamic Systems, Inc., a Redmond, Washington software developer specializing in barcode data collection systems has updated the barcode tracking scanners used in the construction industry, resulting in improved traceability and reduced tool and equipment loss.  

CheckMate software increases productivity and saves money by reducing the time it takes to locate equipment and by assuring that items will not be lost or left behind after a job.  Based on fast, accurate barcode technology, CheckMate records where the item is, who has it, and when it is due back.  The Maintenance Scheduler option records repairs and schedules regular periodic maintenance and records warranty expiration dates.  The systems an also track vehicle service and registration renewals.
