Vending Machine Programs Designed to Lower Cost and Increase Accountability
Allied Inventory Systems supports a variety of vending machines to help track consumption and automate the ordering process for replenishment. Our solution offers:
- Supplier consolidation
- Web-based interface to monitor status and usage trends
- Consolidated billing
- Automated reporting that can be customized to your needs
Most customers who utilize our vending program see an immediate reduction in inventory and a decrease in consumption, as assembly users are individually held accountable for their use of components stored in vending machines.
Many options, in many form factors
Vending machines come in a few basic form factors, and determining which type will best meet your needs is a collaborative exercise. We have supported a number of machines, from coil-vend machines to carousels to locker-vend machines. Coil-vend machines allow for inventory to be stacked front-to-back and provide solid storage density within the machine, but are not well suited for larger parts. Locker-type vending machines, on the other hand, provide more room for inventory but at a lower density. Carousels are great for kits, and can have a density similar to a coil-type machine.
Our mission is to drive cost reductions and eliminate stock-outs.
