Internet of Things (IoT) services provider Trackunit, London, Ontario, Canada, has strengthened its relationship with global original equipment manufacturer (OEM) Hilti, headquartered in Schaan, Lichtenstein, by adding more than 500,000 Hilti On!Track tags to its global network of Bluetooth gateways.

The companies said the partnership enables Hilti to offer its customers enhanced Hilti tool visibility and that customers of both companies will have the option of viewing their ON!Track tagged Hilti tools via an app installed on Trackunit’s Marketplace which will be visible in Trackunit Manager.

Marketplace is the doorway to Trackunit’s extendable platform Iris, described by the company as a data-rich source of insights that fosters collaboration with the industry as part of an evolving ecosystem aimed at benefiting construction as a whole.

“Our commitment is centered around becoming the best productivity partner for our customers,” said Michael Neidow, executive vice president of Hilti’s Construction Software Unit. “By seamlessly integrating Hilti ON!Track tags into Trackunit’s extensive network, we have not only enhanced the visibility and management of our tools but have also streamlined our customers’ operational experience. This partnership embodies our vision of creating a more connected and efficient construction industry.”

Hilti has been in a strategic partnership with Trackunit since January 2022 via the “Works With Trackunit” program, developing its telematics solution based on Trackunit’s telematic capabilities and global network.

Trackunit said the deepening of its partnership with Hilti is vindication of the ‘Works With Trackunit’ program and a prime example of how it makes the customer experience easier.

“Collaboration is at the heart of progress, and our partnership with Hilti is a prime example of how industry leaders can join forces to drive meaningful change,” said Soeren Brogaard, CEO of Trackunit. “Two years into this journey, we have witnessed a transformation in how construction professionals manage their tools.

“By opening our global Bluetooth network to Hilti On!Track and introducing our Hilti Marketplace app, we have delivered a comprehensive solution that empowers our shared customers, giving them easy access to critical tool data. We are very excited about the future advancements that this collaboration will bring to the construction industry.”
