Managing a tool room can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to keeping track of tools, ensuring their availability, and maintaining accountability. Manual processes can be time-consuming, error-prone, and often result in frustration for both employees and tool room managers. However, with ToolWorks' innovative Kiosk Mode, you can streamline your tool room operations and run it on autopilot, empowering your employees to self-checkout and check-in tools with ease.

What is Kiosk Mode?

ToolWorks' Kiosk Mode is a revolutionary feature that transforms the way you manage your tool room. It enables employees to self-checkout and check-in tools without the need for constant supervision or manual intervention. By leveraging the power of technology, Kiosk Mode simplifies the process, increases efficiency, and ensures accountability throughout your tool management operations.

With Kiosk Mode, you can run your tool room on autopilot, allowing employees to access the tools they need, when they need them, without any hassle. This innovative solution not only saves time and reduces bottlenecks but also empowers your workforce to be more productive and focused on their core tasks.

Key Features of Kiosk Mode

Self-Checkout Process

The self-checkout process in Kiosk Mode is designed to be intuitive and user-friendly. Employees can simply approach the designated kiosk or tablet, scan their employee badge to identify themselves, and then scan the barcodes of the tools they need to check out. ToolWorks' centralized asset catalog ensures that all tools within your organization are meticulously cataloged and easily accessible, making the checkout process seamless.

As employees scan the tool barcodes, the app displays the tool information and confirms that it has been added to their checkout list. Once they have scanned all the required tools, they can finalize the checkout process with a single tap, ensuring that the tool assignments and inventory are updated in real-time.

Self-Check-In Process

Kiosk Mode also simplifies the check-in process, making it effortless for employees to return the tools they have borrowed. When returning tools, employees can once again scan their employee badge to identify themselves and then scan the barcodes of the tools they are returning.

ToolWorks' intelligent system recognizes the tools and provides options to mark their condition as "Okay," "Needing Repair," or "Damaged." This feature ensures that accurate tool condition reporting is maintained, allowing for timely maintenance and repair actions to be taken. With all tools scanned and their conditions noted, employees can tap "Check In" to finalize the process, and the app will confirm the successful check-in while updating the tool status in the inventory.

Quick Kiosk Mode Setup

To ensure secure and controlled access to Kiosk Mode, ToolWorks has implemented an administrator-level access feature. Only authorized administrators can enable or disable Kiosk Mode by navigating to the Checkout screen and toggling the Kiosk Mode Lock icon. For added security, administrators must enter a unique lock code to enable or disable Kiosk Mode, preventing unauthorized access and ensuring the integrity of the system.

Benefits of Using Kiosk Mode

Increased Efficiency and Productivity

By implementing Kiosk Mode, you can significantly streamline the tool checkout and check-in processes, reducing wait times and bottlenecks that often hinder productivity. Employees no longer need to wait in line or coordinate with tool room staff, allowing them to focus on their core tasks without interruptions. This increased efficiency translates into higher productivity, improved employee satisfaction, and ultimately, better project delivery.

Enhanced Accountability and Visibility

Kiosk Mode provides real-time tracking of tool assignments, ensuring that you have complete visibility over who has checked out which tools and when they are due back. This level of accountability not only minimizes tool loss and hoarding but also enables better inventory control and optimization.

Additionally, the ability to mark tool conditions during the check-in process ensures accurate reporting, enabling you to promptly address any maintenance or repair needs. This proactive approach helps extend the lifespan of your tools and maximizes their utilization.

Cost Savings and Optimized Resource Utilization

By automating your tool room operations with Kiosk Mode, you can significantly reduce overhead costs associated with manual processes and staffing requirements. With employees able to self-serve, you can optimize your resources and allocate them to more critical tasks.

Furthermore, ToolWorks' robust features, such as the centralized asset catalog, asset types management, and GPS/RFID tool tracking capabilities, enable you to maintain accurate tool counts, prevent unnecessary tool purchases, and minimize tool loss. This comprehensive approach to tool management ultimately leads to substantial cost savings and optimized resource utilization across your entire organization.
