Chain-of-custody tracking and asset management are of utmost importance for every company, large or small. At KCSI, we take pride in giving our customers the peace of mind that comes with knowing their items are accurately and reliably accounted for. You can remain certain of your ability to know exactly where every single item in your system is located, where it has been, who has had it, when, and for what reason.


Whether you’re tracking criminal evidence in a law enforcement agency, documents and legal files at a law firm, medical supplies at a hospital or office supplies at a professional complex, accountability is crucial. Fraud, human error, theft and tampering can all lead to substantial losses if not properly kept in check. Accurate chain-of-custody software ensures your ability to identify and correct irregularities quickly. In addition, knowledge of the system’s presence will serve as a deterrent to those who may have been successful in the past.

SIMMS Inventory Management software helps companies of various sizes optimize equipment and tool use and improve their productivity by optimizing distribution, so that the right tool is in the right place when it is needed. Using a comprehensive employee/location/serial number/tool database, paired with a simple but accurate bar-code based transaction system. SIMMS tool crib software tracks the issue and return of assets to employees and contractors, and the transfer of assets between various warehouses, job-sites, tool rooms and/or stock vehicles.

SIMMS Tool Crib software allows workers to check out and return equipment and tools using a simple-to-use web-based application and bar-code reader. Workers scan their identity cards to begin the process and then scan the item barcodes and/or serial numbers they are utilizing; they next confirm that the list matches their inventory and then proceed to choose either the Check-Out or Return option. Every time items are checked out or checked in the transactions are recorded in the system, with precise time-stamps, directly attributed to its user – the system allows everyone to see who performed the transactions, when and why.
