Vendit Systems


Automated Supply Distribution

The Vendit System is the most affordable and most reliable inventory control system that is available today. The Vendit System automatically dispenses inventory using proven vending machine technology, combined with the enormous power of computers available today. Everything that is vended from the machines is tracked and accounted for via the Internet. Login and you will know, and be able to monitor and control who gets what, when, why, and how many. You can track which department or job an item(s) should be charged to, and you can even limit what an employee can vend based on the individual or their job description.

Benefits

Reduce Costs

Whether you are running a manned storeroom, utilizing the honour system, or keeping your supplies under lock and key, vending PPE, MRO, tools and other consumables will reduce your spending by approximately 30% per year because the system makes all of your employees accountable for the items they use.

Reduce inventory levels

The Vendit S.S.I.M.’s system will allow you to lower your inventory levels. Real time inventory reports allows you and your suppliers to monitor your inventory levels, which results in more timely restocks, and increases employee’s confidence that the products they need will be available when they need them.


Automate & digitize your inventory

The Vendit S.S.I.M.’s system gives you access to numerous reports in real time, and you can select the date range of the report that you would like to read, print, or save to your hard drive. This eliminates the need to do manual inventory counts, or to do manual calculations of past orders.


Reduce material & tool retrieval time

How much time does it take your employees to get the supplies that they need to do their job and get back to work? If supplies are placed in one location in the plant, and depending on where that location is, it can take up to 30 minutes for your employees to get their supplies and get back to work. This downtime costs manufacturers millions of dollars each and every year. The Vendit S.S.I.M.’s system can be strategically situated throughout your plant to give all of your employee’s easy access to the supplies that they need, and get them back to work in a matter of seconds.


Eliminate theft, wastage & hoarding

Theft – We have heard it all. Anything from a manufacturers gloves being sold at a flea market, to the increase in battery consumption leading up to the December holiday season. The Vendit S.S.I.M.’s system makes all of your employees accountable for the items they use.

Wastage- Often employees will take more supplies than they need. One example is welding tips. An employee will retrieve their welding tip that they need, and put a couple more in their pocket to save time from having to walk to the tool crib when they need more. An often occurrence is that the employee forgets about the supply in their pocket, and the welding tip ends up going home with them.

Hoarding- In many situations, employees are worried about product shortages so they will hoard supplies in their lockers, or even hides them throughout the plant. Real time inventory reports allows you and your suppliers the ability to monitor your inventory levels, which results in more timely restocks, and increases employee’s confidence that the products they need, will be available when they need them.


Readily available for employees 24/7

The Vendit S.S.I.M.’s system acts as an unbiast employee that will distribute only the supplies that your employees need, or are allowed access to. The employees simply walk up to the machines, enter a PIN number, hold their ekey to the Vendit reader, make their selection, and get back to work in a matter of seconds.

The Vendit S.S.I.M.’s system stocks from back to front, making sure that your inventory is always rotating, and because you are able to keep less inventory on hand, your inventory turn rates will automatically improve.

Ekeys

Ekeys are a computer chip enclosed in a 16mm thick stainless steel can which your employees can use to identify themselves at the Vendit machines. Employees simply walk up to the machine, enter a PIN, scan their ekey, make their selection, and get back to work in a manner of seconds. Ekeys are rugged enough to withstand harsh environments, indoors or outdoors, and they are small and portable enough to attach to a key chain. The ultimate durable material (stainless steel) protects the silicon chip within the ekey. You can drop an ekey, step on it, or scratch it. The ekey is wear-tested for 10-year durability. Ekeys can be programmed and reprogrammed thousands of times for thousands of different users, as they offer a low cost solution to help you keep track of your inventory. *
