Hilti Opens Up ON!Track Unite Tool Tracking App

EIN Hilti ONTrack Unite

June 15, 2022

Hilti North America has launched ON!Track Unite, a new open Application Programming Interface (API) for software integration. The platform transforms what is often complex and manual-based into a seamless digital experience, unifying data from multiple sources, increasing data quality and consistency, and automating processes involving ON!Track Tool Tracking and Asset Management and other software.

In 2015, Hilti launched construction asset management solution ON!Track to help solve problems related to managing assets, services, workers, and safety certifications. The company is building on the software with the release of ON!Track Unite, an add-on which makes using ON!Track even more efficient and unified. The open API facilitates a seamless exchange of data between ON!Track and other applications construction professionals use to run their businesses. 

The platform is designed to support two main integration scenarios. Customers can use off-the-shelf integrations available on the marketplace or create their own integrations by leveraging the ON!Track Unite open API. Developers can rely on guidance and modern API documentation on the ON!Track Unite hub to easily build scalable integrations. Construction software players can offer joint customers a pre-built integration between ON!Track and the application they develop or distribute, which can be listed on the integration marketplace. The marketplace already includes many integrations, including Fieldwire, Trackunit, Procore and Viewpoint, a leading construction Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). Hilti has plans to offer even more integrations soon.

In recent years, Hilti has made major investments to digitize the construction industry and extend its digital Internet of Things (IoT) portfolio. The announcement follows the brand’s recent acquisition of the project management software Fieldwire, a partnership with Trackunit in the heavy equipment telematics space, and the launch of Nuron, an all-new 22-volt cordless platform with built-in connectivity.

“ON!Track Unite is designed to be personally catered to the unique needs of each customer, providing a unified experience, and unlocking new business value. This is done through an API-first approach that will streamline integrations with other applications,” said Rhys Andrews, previous ON!Track manager and current Division Manager at Hilti Canada. “This new platform will help avoid duplication of manual data entries, help to correctly allocate asset and consumables costs, and open the door to increased tool crib transparency. The change that the ON!Track Unite technology will bring about will help our partners make better data-driven decisions and take productivity to new heights.”

Fleet customers of Hilti’s all-new cordless tool platform, Nuron, can leverage the innovation for a fully connected experience. The tools generate data which is then stored on the Nuron batteries and sent securely to the cloud during every charge without any operator interaction. The data collected includes information on tool usage, charging location and battery state-of-health. Those insights are accessible through ON!Track and will be accessible on the ON!Track Unite open API in the near future.

Customers have come to expect modern Hilti solutions that help their business grow and maximize profitability and the new ON!Track Unite platform is no exception,” said Andrews. “This launch represents a key piece of the open ecosystem of integrated applications that we are expanding and affirms our commitment to the digital change journey. Data is an essential asset that we, as a company, understand must be focused on and prioritized.”

Hilti will proactively discuss and offer support services to customers who decide to implement ON!Track Unite. The platform is available now for U.S. and Canadian customers. The global rollout will continue in 2023.
