Taking control of inventory management at Mitsubishi

Working in partnership with Mitsubishi Electric to help save costs and reduce wastage of PPE and consumables, Scott Direct has installed six new Inventor-e industrial vending machines at Mitsubishi’s air conditioning manufacturing
facilities in Livingston.

The new iVendScale Plus vending machines will each be kept stocked with a bespoke range of PPE-related products including specialist gloves, eye protection and high-vis items. The full range of PPE is supplied and re-stocked by Scott Direct.

Alasdair McColl at Scott Direct said: “We were tasked with several key objectives for this project; to save costs by reducing unnecessary or careless consumption of PPE and consumables; providing 24-hour access to supplies, as well as reducing the time and cost associated with processing, storage and distribution and improving the overall customer experience.

“Our automated and accountable vending solution is already proving highly successful – producing less waste, driving efficiency and saving money.”

Inventor-e’s iVendScale Plus machine was selected for this installation. It is a scale-based inventory management vending system providing secure access and dispensing of products. Users can access products quickly and easily without having to manually log or update inventory. To minimise time spent waiting for the allocation of products during work time, items are accessed using an ID card. Stock data is passed instantly to Sourcerer, the cloud-based inventory and asset management software, to automatically generate a new order for replenishment.

Dean Henry, CEO at Inventor-e, said; “Our industrial vending solutions puts the right item in the right place at the right time. Ensuring optimum productivity while preventing work stoppages and controlling costs. Sourcerer, enables customers to effectively manage and control usage of material across all Inventor-e solutions and can also be used in mobile and storeroom environments with the SmartStores app, as well as vending solutions, providing real-time company-wide visibility and control of materials.”
