New app brings added value to battery-powered hydraulic tools
CHATTANOOGA, TN. (October 24, 2018) – Emerson (NYSE: EMR) today announced the launch of the Sherman + Reilly i-press battery tool monitoring smartphone app.
The new i-press app allows crews to track their Next Generation Sherman + Reilly Battery Tools. Using the simple navigation display, workers can view the battery charge, last service date, last five pressure measurements, tool temperature and the number of cycles completed with a connected tool. Users can create a project within the i-press app to save and combine crimping operation data and track tool performance. When the project is complete, an overview report is generated and sent as a PDF.
“We developed the i-press app to make tool management hassle-free,” said Ryan Berg, Product Management Director for Utility Tools, Emerson. “By leveraging mobile technology, workers can better monitor their tools and get more done on the job site. From new technology to continued service, we are dedicated to optimizing productivity for our professional trade customers.”
In addition to the new i-press app, Sherman + Reilly will continue to provide factory service solutions for battery-powered tools from their locations in Rockford, IL and Chattanooga, TN. Professional service experts provide preventative maintenance, comprehensive assessments, and certified tool testing to quickly get tools back in safe working order.
