Milwaukee's OneKey: Customize, Track and Manage Your Workflow
Though DeWalt led the way with its Tool Connect system, it wouldn't take too long for other major tool manufacturers to develop their own systems for dealing with major job site issues. One of the most recent tool systems to develop smart technology for workflow tool management is Milwaukee's OneKey system. Controlled by a mobile app available for both Apple and Android devices, the app gives you a wide range of options to control access to and security of your tools while having the option of tweaking your tool's performance. Here's an in-depth look to the features you'll be able to take advantage of the Milwaukee OneKey system.
Improve Tool Security
Unlike DeWalt's Tool Connect system, which tracks the battery on a tool, the Milwaukee OneKey system tracks the tool itself. If a tool is stolen or goes missing, you can set up an alert so that it will inform you the very next time that tool is within range of a phone equipped with the OneKey app. You also have the option of locking the tool out until it has been recovered.
When everything went crazy, where did you set your drill down at on the way to make sure everything was going to be okay? With OneKey, you get help in finding that lost tool. The app tracks not only when you're within 100 feet of your tool, even with a dead battery, including past hits. The network of OneKey users allows your tool to be pinpointed using the locating feature in all open apps. In some cases this can even help prevent tool theft.

The OneKey system includes a wide range of inventory tracking options, making it much easier to determine exactly which tools you have and where they're deployed in the field. This makes it much simpler to locate a tool you need and determine whether it's in use at the job site. You can quickly look up tool status, purchase information, performance reports or maintenance status.
But what if you want to track items beyond your Milwaukee tools? The OneKey system was developed to include their Tick tool, a simple spot that you attach to ladders, table saws, heavy equipment and other tools that would not otherwise be compatible with the system. This allows you to track those items' locations as well using your OneKey app on your mobile device.
Your job site tools are a vital part of how well you can keep your contracting business productive, and if they go missing or are lost, that costs you productivity and profitability. Milwaukee's OneKey system can provide you with the tools you need to keep your operation running efficiently. But what if you're not quite sure whether the OneKey system is the best fit for your business compared to DeWalt or other tool management systems that are being developed?
