Tool Manager Software
for the Smaller Contractor
Dynamic Systems Inc., a Redmond, Wash.-based software developer specializing in data collection applications for the construction and manufacturing industries, has released a low-cost tool manager based on bar code technology.

Dynamic Systems says bar code data collection is both accurate and efficient for tracking or counting items.
