Theft affects everyone.

Imagine a system that helps a police officer locate the owner of a recovered stolen tool and instantly emails the tool’s owner to let them know it’s just been found.

Imagine a pawn shop that can learn more about a tool before they buy it. Is it stolen? Who is the original owner? Is there a police report attached to it?

That’s the PowerTool Safe™ solution. Sharing the right information with the right people at the right time is the only way to eliminate theft in the construction industry.

Focus on your job. We’ll focus on your tools.

Time is money.

Builders simply don’t have the time. They wear several hats. The hats most often worn focus on the tasks that generate revenue. Meeting with clients, ordering materials, scheduling, quality control, coordinating subs, overseeing crews, accounting, invoicing. Tool tracking is loss mitigation. Because of that, theft will always be a pain point that contractors face.

YOUR VALUABLES ADD UP

Over time, we tend to forget what all we spend on the items we buy for work, play, investment, or pleasure. Everyday items that we rely on that would truly hurt if they went missing and you had to show proof of purchase. Isn’t it time to make sure you have the records you need to protect yourself from fire, flood or theft?

Save on theft insurance

There are two types of theft insurance policies. “Stated Value” and “Scheduled”. Stated Value means that your policy premium is based on the total value of your equipment with no documentation. Scheduled List means you give your agent a list of all the tools you are insurning that includes brand, model, serial number, and price. This helps the insurance company know exactly what they are ensuring and typically costs significantly less than a stated value policy.

Settle claims faster

When your records are complete with PowerTool Safe™, you can instantly create theft incidents and complete police reports. This is the exact same information you need to file an insurance claim. Getting complete information to your insurance company helps them settle claims faster too.

Buying stolen tools is bad for business

Pawn shops lose money when they buy stolen goods. They don’t have instant access to the information they need to prevent them from buying stolen tools. A better flow of quality information is essential to help everyone combat theft as a team.

When a PTS user experiences theft, marks tools stolen and files a police report, that information can be conveyed to a pawn shop when they search that stolen tool.

Pawn shop transaction

INSTANTLY CHECK THE STATUS OF TOOLS BEFORE YOU BUY

Due diligence is good business sense. Taking a second to check the status of a tool can save a Pawn Shop from losing money and help cut down on theft in your community.

One simple search can help you protect the hard-working builders in your area and improve your reputation.

Law Enforcement has an incredible responsibility to their entire community. Jobsite theft is just one aspect of crime police officers respond to.

PowerTool Safe™ is an additional resource specifically developed to help theft victims, pawns shops and law enforcement effectively share the critical information necessary to reduce theft in the construction industry.

RECOVERED STOLEN TOOLS DON’T HAVE TO LEAD TO A DEAD END.

Every year, thousands of tools end up in police custody with no way to trace them back to their rightful owner. At PowerTool Safe™, our goal is to help bring your recovered stolen goods back home to you. After all, isn’t that how tool tracking should work?

Tools recovered from theft

Help send recovered goods back to their owner

Have you recovered a tool? Enter Brand, Model, and Serial Number. If it's registered in our database, we will instantly put you in contact with the rightful owner.

It really is that simple. The owner would love to have their property returned. They may even be able to provide missing theft details that help lead to an arrest.

Pain points are real

Builders don’t have the time and most don’t know how to create the necessary records to protect their equipment.

  1. Builders don’t have a good system for keeping records and most don’t know how to create one.
  2. They know tool records is something they need to help combat theft, but most don’t know how or where to begin.
  3. Builders will stand in line to receive a service they need when someone else is willing to provide it for them.
  4. Receiving tool information makes builders feel smarter by preparing them with a plan.
  5. Having good records and a proactive plan in place gives builders a sense of security.
  6. Receiving a service that offers a sense of security makes a purchase transaction personal.

Retailers are in a strategic position

Every tool enters the construction ecosystem through a retailer which creates an incredible marketing strategy for retailers. The PowerTool Safe™ API automatically creates accounts and generates tool records at the point of sale giving your customers the tools they need to directly address the pain points they face every day.

“An increase in customer retention of merely 5% can equate to an increase in profit of 25%. This is because repeat customers are more likely to spend more with your brand —300% more, to be exact”1

Integrate With Ease

Are you a potential partner that would like to give your customers the security of having their possessions protected by PowerTool Safe™? Online retailers, SaaS applications, or even just large enterprises can integrate with our system seamlessly through our open public API.

For example, an online retailer can add a few simple API calls to their checkout flow and automatically create a new PowerTool Safe account for their customer, add tool purchases, upload receipts, perform lookups, and even update specific fields such as serial numbers. Your customers will no longer be forced to contact you to look up receipts and serial numbers when they need to recover their information, they'll have everything at their fingertips in their very own account. You can even upload the entire purchase history of a customer so they've got a complete record of everything they've purchased from you in their account.

Another use case is a SaaS application that serves the construction industry. Automatically create accounts for your customers, let them update their own tools, and then (with the customer's permission) query for data on those tools. Perhaps you have an asset management module, but you want to offer the capability to store and maintain images, purchase history, receipts, etc. Plus your customers will get the peace of mind of theft prevention, police reports, etc.

How it Works

  • Sign up for a developer account. You'll be issued a developer key for both the sandbox and the production system.
  • Add the API calls to your systems. Each customer you add must have opted in for an account. The API is rate limited to 6 calls per minute, contact us if you need a higher bandwidth.
  • Start adding accounts. Accounts that you've added can be queried and updated via the API as long as the customer has also opted in from our system to allow you that access.
  • And that's it. Let's get started!
