SupplyPro, Inc., announced today the launch of SupplyScale, a flexible
weight-based inventory management solution that can be seamlessly
integrated into a new or existing SupplyPro system.
"SupplyScale is extremely accurate, accountable and easy to manage
regardless of whether the inventory is bulk commodities such as
fasteners and gloves or high value items such as cutting tools and
parts," said Floyd Miller, President and CEO of SupplyPro.
Because SupplyScale's sensing technology is so precise, it can detect
the stocking or dispensing of an item weighing as little as 5 grams,
Unlike open bin inventory options, SupplyScale uses a patented managed
bin system, Secure Bin™, which eliminates the potential for cross-bin
contamination, theft and unauthorized access. Replenishment is equally
accurate, and stocking time is significantly reduced.
"SupplyScale delivers an absolute level of control for bulk storage, yet
allows for variable item dispensing that cannot be achieved with other
point-of-use (POU) inventory management systems that incorporate scale
technology," said Miller.
Miller also added that SupplyScale manages higher quantities with a
lower cost of ownership. "More invntory can be stored in a smaller
footprint, with the flexibility to add as little as a single SupplyScale
module to one of our SmartDrawer™ cabinets or the option to purchase a
complete unit or an entire system of scale based devices," he said.
Because it is designed to be flexible as well as reliable, SupplyScale
can accommodate a variety of drawer configurations from 2-bin drawers up
to 24-bin drawers, accommodating drawer depths from 3 to 9 inches.
SupplyScale leverages the reliability of SupplyPro's patented
SmartDrawer™ technology into an extremely flexible new product that
delivers higher density and greater control for consumable inventory
applications, said Mike Reynolds, Chief Technology Officer of SupplyPro.
"There is not a more advanced load-cell vending solution available in
the market today," he said.
Reynolds and his team at SupplyPro designed SupplyScale to take full
advantage of SupplyPro's software, SupplyPort™, which delivers automated
inventory management and vendor integration; comprehensive reporting;
superior ease-of-use; enterprise-wide administration; and the
flexibility to adapt to customer work flow and business processes.
"SupplyScale integrates productivity, quality, compliance and safety
into a complete and reliable POU solution," Reynolds said.
