CribTrack Reduces Costs of Inventory Management

Maintaining costs is critical to business operations, and overlooking the costs associated with inventory management can eat away at margins. Inventory costs for essential consumable and reusable items vary – from smaller items such as light bulbs and batteries to bigger items like power tools.

Inventory control allows for an organizational approach to understanding the frequency items need to be replenished, while also instilling accountability for when inventory is used and by whom. These two operating benefits are just two reasons why organizations implement CribTrack inventory management solutions.

Because CribTrack offers security, flexibility and affordability, organizations count on CribTrack to assist with their inventory management needs – reducing costs and keeping operations running on-time.

Organized Approach Means Keeping Up with Low Supplies

Running out of certain items can slow or halt production altogether. Sending an employee offsite or paying for same-day or next-day shipping to replenish crucial items can be time-consuming and expensive.

CribTrack industrial vending machines prevent these costly problems before they happen by accurately tracking and monitoring inventory levels.

Flexible for Many Applications

An effective inventory management solution needs to be flexible in order to meet the vast requirements of factory floors, workshops, and building facilities. CribTrack vending machines offer that flexibility.

There are several industries that can make great use of CribTrack – such as industrial, hospitals, restaurants and schools. Whatever the application each machine slot can fit several different size items, so each business can make the most out of their machine – items that can fit include batteries, drills, end mills, gloves, tubes, medications, lab equipment, IT equipment, printer supplies, spices and more.

Magnetic Storage Containers

Shelving space can be configured as needed with a maximum capacity of 200 storage positions in each machine. Barcodes can be customized to accurately track whichever item resides in a specific storage bin. The barcode scanner is used to keep track of when items are removed or returned by authorized individuals, and automatic electronic alerts are sent when an item is in need of replenishment.

Monitoring is continuous with CribTrack’s included software. The software has the flexibility to be run on premise or in the cloud to meet the needs of an organization’s IT infrastructure.

Secure Machine Provides Accountability

Because CribTrack requires users to login one of three ways in order to access items, there will be a record at all times of who accessed the machine and scanned out items. There are three cameras as well, in the event that someone was to login and remove any items without using the scanner. The camera would capture a video recording of the event, tracing back to the employee, and maintaining accountability.

CribTrack is tamper-proof and comes with an embedded alarm. It requires users to login either by a PIN code, Prox card or biometric authentication fingerprint scan.

About CribTrack
CribTrack Industrial Vending Machine

What’s different over other industrial vending machines?

CribTrack is different than any other industrial vending machines – It is designed to be simple, smart and secure. For example, it offers the benefit of multiple access options. To access inventory there are three built-in methods: a user assigned touchpad PIN, RF PROX card/key fob (HID, I-HID option available), and biometric fingerprint scanner. Once access is granted, an item can be ‘checked out’ by simply scanning the associated barcode. Returning an item is just as simple; scan a special built-in return barcode and follow the prompts listed on the interior 10-inch monitor.

Enter pincode, use the PROX card or use your fingerprint to unlock the machine.

Another benefit that separates CribTrack from other inventory management machines is the 3-year warranty – a lot of the mechanical aspects of a traditional vending machine have been eliminated to produce a remarkably reliable platform. By simplifying the machine CribTrack offers a quicker method of retrieving items – other machines take longer to enter information for procuring an item, but with CribTrack, the average time it takes to complete a transaction is 15 seconds.

While other machines are inaccessible only allowing items to be dispensed by the machine itself, or dropped down like snack vending machines, CribTrack can be opened, allowing a user to inspect an item before procuring it. To manage inventory securely CribTrack provides a log of who took or returned an item from the machine. The cameras ensure the proper procedure is followed throughout the process. Because there are four cameras, all activities are recorded from several different angles and subsequently viewable on demand.

CribTrack is the perfect solution for any organization with a need for industrial vending and inventory management. It is flexible, easy-to-use, simple to manage, reliable, and economical. CribTrack allows organizations to take advantage of cost savings attained through better inventory management, accountability, and trace-ability.  For more information on CribTrack please visit www.cribtrack.com or call 1-844-744-CRIB (2742) to speak with an experienced application consultant.
