Back in August, Milwaukee Tool announced their new tool tracking software, ONE-KEY, would soon be released. On Friday, Milwaukee made good on their promise and released the Inventory Management portion of the software. In October of 2015, Tool Reporting, which will allow tools to wirelessly connect with the platform to monitor use and performance, will be made available. In January of 2016, the third phase, Tool Control, which allows tool settings to change with the touch of a button, will be released. To read more information and find out all of the benefits of ONE-KEY, you can view our initial post about it here.
ONE-KEY is available as a free mobile application on both iOs and Android and also as a web platform for use with a laptop or desktop.
To help you understand what ONE-KEY actually is and how to use it, Milwaukee has uploaded several videos to Youtube, which you can view below. There are some slight variations in the process when you use the mobile app vs. the web platform on a laptop or desktop, so both videos are included in this post, as available.

It may seem a little crazy to be talking about needing heated gear in the middle of August, but cold weather will be here before we know it. Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean the schedules get any longer, so you need to find a way to stay productive by staying warm.
Construction companies spend thousands and thousands of dollars each year on tools, but many of them are lost, damaged, or mismanaged, leading to even more money being spent on replacements or loss of time labor time searching for the necessary tools.
