Bosch Bluehound takes the worry out of asset tracking on large projects
Bosch Bluehound offers an asset-tracking solution that brings transparency to a variety of business-wide information requirements. Software capabilities include user-driven customization, cost accounting, certification tracking, digital information warehousing, safety monitoring, asset delivery tracking and end-of-day asset tracking.
Bluehound was built with input from ENR (Engineering News-Record) Top 100 company owners, yard managers, technology officers and operations managers. The software solution allows users to focus on other parts of their business without having to worry about where assets are deployed.
"Bluehound is a broad connectivity solution for the large user, the large construction company that's working on a complex project," said Eli Share, IoT and mobile lead, Bosch Power Tools. "This is a comprehensive tool tracking program that integrates with some of the construction industry's best-known enterprise-wide software solutions. Our goal is to build an end-to-end system that encompasses everything from individual tool tracking to how that tool fits into asset requirements for an entire jobsite."
Bosch is working with key partners to bring greater transparency to the jobsite. Triax Technologies and Bosch have compatible offerings and are developing an integration between Triax's Spot-r solution and Bosch's Bluehound asset tracking to provide greater value to joint customers, enabling a more connected jobsite.
Bosch measuring tools are dedicated to supplying precise, integrated measurement where users need it. By working with Procore, a provider of cloud-based apps for construction, Bosch is putting users in control of their tool information. And Bluehound integrates with Bosch MeasureOn software, so measurements from Bosch laser distance devices can live on Procore project drawings for complete site transparency.
Procore's solutions are built to help streamline complex processes, create seamless business operations and manage the entire construction lifecycle. Through the Procore Construction OS, the company has provided a platform to the industry designed for the entire lifecycle of construction, connecting every application, device, person and business operation to an integrated and expandable platform.
"We're looking to develop and grow the integrated jobsite technology offering," said Share. "Bosch isn't looking to provide every component or touchpoint under this strategy. We believe in the power of partnership."
