New GM ToolNet Release Date Announced

GM ToolNet, the new asset management application to help GM dealerships in organizing and managing their special service tools inventory, will be launched April 14, 2020. Developed by Bosch Corporation, the new application will replace the current application for all U.S. and Canadian dealerships.

GM ToolNet must be accessed through GlobalConnect. It will include a variety of management features that enhance efficiency and productivity, including: Tool Check-In/Out, Tool Maintenance Scheduling, Storage Location Customization, User Management, and Tool Usage Reporting. (Fig. 31)

Tool-related data for dealerships that are actively using the current application will be transferred to each dealership’s new ToolNet account. Any new tool data (new tools added) entered after January 31, 2020 will not be transferred during this period. Data after this date will need to be re-entered into the ToolNet account.

Dealerships that are not using the current application should perform an inventory of the dealership’s special tools. The tool data can be uploaded later. The data upload process will be available on the ToolNet application.

Additional information about the new ToolNet application will be released prior to the April launch date.
