Inventory Control

Vending systems are rapidly becoming more popular within the manufacturing industry due to the range of key benefits they can offer. Implementing a point of use vend will provide a secure, automated dispensing system that delivers the correct tool for the right job.

This simple way to immediately access your tools means there is no need to spend time tracking down tools or searching through stores as all tools will be accessible from one location. With automatic reordering and immediate improvement in the administration of tool stock levels, you will reduce machine down time and ultimately you will see an improvement in your tooling costs.

Automatic Reordering

New orders are raised automatically each time tools are vended, eliminating the need to allocate staff to raise orders for tooling, as a result regular stock is always available.


Consolidated Deliveries

Each time a tool is vended the system will automatically record the transaction and consolidate the information for restocking.


Invoicing Options

Various invoicing options are available to suit customers specific requirements.


Detailed Transaction Data

Cross reference and check which personnel have used what tools on a specific job and gain insight into the true cost of manufacturing particular components. Every tool vended is accounted for which will allow you to allocate costs back to a department, machine or specific job number.


Report Options

Receive reports, tailored to suit customer needs, of product and operator usage to help set minimum and maximum stock levels, eliminate overuse, monitor and control tooling costs.
