    Tool Tracking Software App


Align’s tool tracking app helps you track tools, equipment, and materials across all stocking locations and job sites

Align’s tool tracking software delivers enterprise-wide visibility to every item in your tool and equipment inventory. The Align Field App connects your onsite personnel to back office and warehouse teams and turns every smartphone and tablet in the field into a data collection device, providing unparalleled tracking and visibility to tool and equipment locations and movement.

More than 30 years ago, ToolWatch founder Don Kafka, then an electrical contractor, knew he was losing tools at a high rate to theft, damage, and hoarding. When he had had enough of wasting valuable time hunting the tools down or spending money to replace them, and with no off-the-shelf solutions available, he developed one of the industry’s first comprehensive tool tracking software solutions. This laid the foundation for Align Technologies. 

Over the years, the Align team (formerly ToolWatch) collaborated with the system’s many users to implement thousands of customer-suggested enhancements, giving the system unrivaled tool tracking capabilities.
