The system is designed to register tools taken by employees with the ability to be assigned to the object to be used.
The accounting system consists of identifiers of employees and tools, their scanners, accounting software:
- Employee Email cards, pendants. Cards can be personalized or not, and can be used for access control on objects, automatic tab registration, urban transport or other purposes. For use with NFC phones, the cards’ internal chip must be NTAG compliant
2. Tool identifiers (e-stickers, key fobs, screw-on tags, screw in wood, etc.). For use with NFC phones, the cards’ internal chip must be NTAG compliant.
3. Accounting system
The central computer registers employee cards and their contact data, as well as tools: code at the company, name, description, photography, etc. and those responsible for approving the transfer of tools.
The project manager, storekeeper, or other person in charge has an NFC tag reader – an NFC phone or tag scanner connected to the computer with software installed to capture tool transfer. There are many such scanners, all of which communicate online with a central computer database.

After registering all employees, tools and responsible persons on the central computer (server), the system becomes ready for work. The phone scans the employee’s card and sends it to the server, which checks the card’s validity, in the positive case sends the employee’s name and surname. The NFC tag of the tool is retrieved and sent back to the server, which checks the situation of the tool and generates a message on the phone (tool name, photo). If needed, the tool can be assigned to an project or object (then a list of objects is downloaded from the server along with the tool name).
