General Tools is a leading manufacturer and supplier of precision speciality tools. In business since 1922, the General Tools catalogue includes more than 1000 precision measuring, inspection and digital tools.
With mobile phones becoming increasingly ubiquitous, General Tools was looking to develop a mobile app that would supplement their ToolSmart range of products. The app was to include features to help tradesmen and craftsmen improve their productivity.
Icreon developed the ToolSmart mobile app that provides for seamless integration with the ToolSmart products. Measurements taken using the tools can be transmitted, stored and organized within the app.
The solution allows for the tools to connect to the app and transmit measurement data via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. The transmitted data can be used within projects thereby increasing productivity and efficiency.
In addition to measurement data, images and videos taken from the tools can be transmitted and saved within the app.
