Discover More about Pilot 4.0

With Pilot 4.0 you can import the data from the tool tables into the software by using the barcode scanner or by entering the tool name manually.

Pilot allows you to perform all standard measurements easily with the touch of a button. The software also includes a wide variety of measurement templates that can be used for most tool types and sizes. By recording measurement data, you can enhance the quality of your tools and increase your productivity.

What makes Pilot different from the other solutions on the market is its user-friendly interface that lets you record the measurement data in just a few minutes. All you have to do is swipe your finger across the screen. Here are some of the key features of Pilot:

Measurement Template Library

At the heart of the software is the library of measurement templates that cover a wide range of tooling types. You can use the measurement templates to scan in the tool’s dimensions directly from the table and then quickly measure the dimensions of the cutting tools using your smartphone or tablet. The following list of measurement templates provides a representative sample of the types of tools that the software can measure:

  • Hard Materials- Diamond Saw Blades, Drill Bits, Router Bits, Chisel Tips, etc.
  • Flexible Materials- Cutting Tools, Tubing Cutters, Coupling & Fitting Tools, etc.
  • Special Tools- Measuring Tools, Welding Tools, Hand Tools, etc.

Custom tool templates

The software contains a large number of predefined templates for different types of tools. All you need to do is select the type of tool you want to measure from the list of available templates and scan the corresponding barcode to add it to your profile. You can also add your own custom measurement templates to the library and make them available for use with the app.

Easy imports

You can import the tool data from multiple tools at once by scanning their barcodes with the app or entering the details manually. You can also create multiple profiles with different parameters for different groups of tools. This ensures that you have all the information you need to measure the tools accurately and avoid errors.

Multiple measurements

The system allows multiple measurements for each tool. This means that you can measure the length and width of each tool in a single session and also take images of the tool for reference purposes. 

Customisable reports

The reports generated by Pilot can be customized based on your specific business needs. You can select the fields that are included in the report and the formatting style as well. This makes the report more personalized and allows you to track the data you need more accurately. Other features include the ability to export data as CSV and PDF files and the ability to synchronize data across multiple devices.

Hassle-free data management

Capable of making intelligent observations to avoid unnecessary manual data entry; generating customized reports according to your specifications; recording the precise dimensions of your tools and equipment whenever you need them; and allowing you to store all the relevant information about your tools and equipment in a centralised database for hassle-free data management.
