Milwaukee Tool introduces One-Key™, the first digital platform for tools and equipment. By integrating industry-leading tool electronics with a custom-built cloud-based program, One-Key™ will provide a new level of control and access to information that will revolutionize the way work gets done.
Coming this month, Inventory Management will be the first component available through the Web and mobile app, creating a central place for users to manage all of their tools and equipment across their network of jobs and operators. This free-to-use platform allows companies to keep detailed records of each tool, even non-Milwaukee brands, so they can easily build a budget and manage their annual spend on equipment. Managers are also able to assign locations or specific owners to each asset, providing accountability and enabling easy information-sharing between the field and back-office. As a cloud-based solution, updates and edits will be synchronized real-time throughout all levels of an organization.
In October 2015, Tool Reporting will be added to the One-Key™™ platform with the launch of M18™ Force Logic™ 6T Utility Crimpers. With the ability to wirelessly synchronize with the Web-based program, the user will be able to upload data and history to create custom reports that track the success and timing of electrical terminations. Furthermore, the One-Key™ program will assist in tracking the utilization and service intervals of the tool to maximize uptime and keep inventory lean.
The cornerstone of the One-Key™ platform, Tool Control, will be added in January 2016 with the introduction of M18 FUEL™ Drilling and Driving products that will sync wirelessly to the One-Key™ application. The app will allow users to use pre-determined setups for specific fasteners and materials, or completely customize their own profile with torque and speed settings for the application at hand. With a touch of the button on the tool, users will be able to easily go back and forth between these saved profiles so that each application is done with the most accurate and productive settings.
One-Key™ is accessible from www.milwaukeetool.com/one-key, or by a mobile app interface on compatible Android and iOS smartphones.
