Tool Control at the touch of a button
Techni-Tool's Vendor Managed Inventory Program
What's the Problem?
At most manufacturing/industrial sites, in order to keep workers furnished with tools and other production materials and supplies, they typically have to stop what they're doing and go get what they need at some distant storeroom, warehouse or tool crib. Traveling, waiting and socializing along the way can really add up to a lot of wasted time.

And record-keeping for these transactions is often inconsistent at best, leading to inventory issues like overstocking, stock-outs or worse. Don't waste money!
How Can Techni-Tool Help?
Imagine if your workers could get exactly the item they need, exactly when and where they need it. And you automatically got a record of every transaction.

As the newest feature of our total Vendor Managed Inventory program, Techni-Tool now offers point-of-work vending to streamline and control the distribution of tools and other supplies at your facility.

How Does It Work?

  • Techni-Tool provides the vending equipment best suited to your needs, installs them where you choose, and provides those products you normally use at each location.
  • Workers use individual IDs to dispense the specific items they need for the job at hand.
  • The transaction is automatically logged and reported, so you know exactly who received what, where and when - discouraging over-consumption.
  • Then, when records indicate you're running low on a particular item, we'll ship what you need to restock so service won't be interrupted.

What Are the Benefits?
  • Lower material costs - Users typically see a 20% to 30% sustained reduction in material cost, thanks largely to greater accountability for what's used and by whom. That translates to less waste, shrinkage and non-compliant consumption.
  • Inventory reduction - Knowing exactly what you use means you have to stock only what you need...only when you need it. You'll enjoy reduced carrying costs, storage space, damage and obsolescence.
  • Increased productivity - Fewer man - hours will be wasted on unnecessary trips back and forth to resupply. And automatic inventory tracking streamlines the replenishment of stock, virtually eliminating outages, production delays and the need for expedited orders. You'll also see a substantial decline in transactional and requisitional costs as well.

Automated point-of-work dispensing supports your Lean and 5-S initiatives by reducing Wasted Time, Wasted Materials, and Wasted Motion and ensuring that the right tools, supplies and materials are always available when and where your workers need them.
