Tool Control & Asset Tracking Software

Railroad Industry Costs Go Down and Efficiency Goes Up

TCMax Software brings an entirely new dimension of control and reporting to the railroad industry. With unmatched ease of integration, customization, and operation, tracking all assets and inventory is just a small portion of how TCMax will help your organization. With our tool control software railroads now have a system that can manage tool status and condition, create work orders, and provide real-time reports of assets that need attention, calibration, or inspection.

TCMax maintains permanent records of every asset. Each asset can have an unlimited number of attachments such as an MSDS or maintenance instructions, which open with a single keystroke. TCMax tracks employee certifications, including certification expiration dates, and will not issue tools to employees who are not qualified or certified to use the asset. Automated email notifications can be sent to up to four levels of management with customized triggers, and the TCMax Dashboard provides real-time evaluation of company assets including broken assets, how long they have been broken, and who fixes them most efficiently.

What Can TCMax Do For Our Railroad?

TCMax will save your company money, increase efficiency, and provide valuable business data. Here are just a few of the ways TCMax Tool Control Software can help your railroad:

  • Chain of Custody: When a worker walks away with a company asset they know they are accountable. With TCMax you'll know where assets are and can pinpoint where, when and in whose possession asset defects occur.
  • Status and Condition Tracking: Railroads now have a process for tracking and repairing bad order assets as well as knowledge of assets that need attention, calibration, or inspection.
  • Automated Exception Reporting and Notification: The TCMax Dashboard App can notify appropriate personnel of bad orders, create work orders, line up assets for repair or forwarding to maintenance facility. This allows for instant data to send out a replacement asset which allows for less inventory.
  • Reduce downtime: If TCMax issues the employee an asset, the employee knows they have authorization to possess the asset and knows the asset is in working order. This can be OCU’s, batteries, or any other asset you wish to track.
  • Time and Attendance: Optional biometric fingerprint reader ensures time and attendance requirements are met.
  • Real Time: TCMax provides real-time data for managers using the TCMax Dashboard, with instant inventory and tracking for valuable assets.
