  3. 3. How does it work? <ul><li>Enter an employee number </li></ul><ul><li>Enter the location that the tools are going to </li></ul><ul><li>Enter the tool numbers, as fast as you like! </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Listen for the audio “Issue” that confirms the tool was really issued </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Or listen for the word “Turn In” confirming the tool was turned into the tool crib </li></ul></ul><ul><li>We include our custom Label Maker software designed around the assetTRAX™ program </li></ul><ul><li>Any existing alphanumeric numbering system will work for both employee numbers and tool numbers up to 50 characters each </li></ul>

Change the Parent Barcode number on the spot OR move it to where it belongs </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Why is assetTRAX the right choice <ul><li>No “Client-Server” to deal with </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We use an Access® database … Optionally you can use a Sql Server database for large installations </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No web connection necessary with assetTRAX others often require a high speed internet connection </li></ul></ul><ul><li>No Software “Modules” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We give you everything with your purchase </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>When we come out with an upgrade or additional features they are yours for free if you have a current maintenance agreement </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If you have a maintenance agreement we email you the information required to implement the upgrade or new features </li></ul></ul><ul><li>No “Special Versions” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>One version of assetTRAX fits everyone’s needs through built-in options </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Why is assetTRAX the right choice <ul><li>One single screen does almost everything </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Other software companies make you dig through a series of screens to do anything which wastes your time </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>With assetTRAX you Issue & turn in tools, add/edit tools, add/edit employees all from the same screen! </li></ul></ul><ul><li>assetTRAX Talks to you so you can scan barcodes as fast as you like without having to watch the computer screen </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Issue”, “Turn in”, “Enter quantity”, “Overdue Calibration” are a few of the audio prompts that tells you exactly what assetTRAX is doing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Other software companies require you to look at the computer screen after every scan, literally a pain in the neck </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Over 30 years of aircraft maintenance experience led to the writing of assetTRAX </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Designed to speed the issue/turn in process and keep your employees working on the job rather than standing in the line at the tool crib! </li></ul></ul><ul><li>No ‘Queries’ to write or any other computer experience necessary! </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Our search screen will find your tool information quickly and easily </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Quoting a customer “If you can run an ATM you can run assetTRAX!” </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Issue / Turn In Mode A quick demonstration
  8. 8.  Enter an employee number:  Simple Instructions to Turn in tools You don’t have to ‘switch screens’ to turn in tools! assetTRAX assumes that if the tool is already issued then you must want to turn it in.  Tool Issue Log When there is no employee on the screen, the log displays all previous transactions. With a valid employee on the screen, the log displays only tools currently issued to that employee.
  9. 9. Employee name displayed, Computer says “Employee”  Enter location that tools are going to:
  10. 10. Location displayed and computer says “Location”  Now enter your tool numbers:

  19. 19. assetTRAX instantly issues all of the children. Now you simply walk around the truck/trailer/room scanning every barcode in sight, listening for assetTRAX to say “Turn In”.
