How Does the One-Key Bluetooth Tracking Tag Differ from TICK™  

First announced in 2017, the TICK Tool & Equipment Tracker was an innovative product that filled a gap in the market.

It gave contractors a professional, construction-grade Bluetooth tracker that offered versatility with a low-profile design, multiple attachment options, and the ability to withstand the harshest jobsite conditions. 


Since then, Bluetooth tracking technology has advanced significantly and we’re proud to release a product that: 

  • Resolves the common pain points users of TICK have communicated to us 
  • Delivers additional features, as well as improved in-app functionality, that will improve the end user’s overall tracking experience with this product

General guidelines to improve tool tracking 

  • One-Key leads the industry with the largest community Bluetooth tracking network. However, as a community Bluetooth tracking application, in order to see more location updates, the more users in the app within your area, the better. You can improve your experience in the app (particularly on remote jobsites) by ensuring everyone on the job is in the app. 
  • Ensure location services and Bluetooth permissions on your device are enabled (location allows us to triangulate where your tools are located in relation to you and provide location updates, and Bluetooth allows for you to be able to scan for nearby devices). Learn how on Android and iOS
