Hilti North America is leading a fundamental shift in how customers run their businesses with the launch of ON!Track Unite, a new open Application Programming Interface for software integration. The platform transforms what is often complex and manual-based into a seamless digital experience, unifying data from multiple sources, increasing data quality and consistency, and automating processes involving ON!Track Tool Tracking and Asset Management and other software.
In 2015, Hilti launched construction asset management solution ON!Track to help solve problems related to managing assets, services, workers and safety certifications. The company is building on the software with the release of ON!Track Unite, an add-on that makes using ON!Track even more efficient and unified. The open API facilitates a seamless exchange of data between ON!Track and other applications construction professionals use to run their businesses.
The platform is designed to support 2 main integration scenarios. Customers can use off-the-shelf integrations available on the marketplace or create their own integrations by leveraging the ON!Track Unite open API. Developers can rely on guidance and modern API documentation on the ON!Track Unite hub to easily build scalable integrations. Construction software players can offer joint customers a pre-built integration between ON!Track and the application they develop or distribute, which can be listed on the integration marketplace. The marketplace already includes many integrations, including Fieldwire, Trackunit, Procore and Viewpoint. Hilti has plans to offer even more integrations soon.
Fleet customers of Hilti’s all-new cordless tool platform, Nuron, can leverage the innovation for a fully connected experience. The tools generate data that is then stored on the Nuron batteries and sent securely to the cloud during every charge without any operator interaction. The data collected includes information on tool usage, charging location and battery state-of-health. Those insights are accessible through ON!Track and will be accessible on the ON!Track Unite open API in the near future.
Hilti will proactively discuss and offer support services to customers who decide to implement ON!Track Unite.
