CribMaster, the global leader in providing solutions for managing indirect materials, announces a new addition to its line of traditional point-of-use vending solutions. “We designed the ProLock to provide control, security, and hassle-free distribution in managing returnable assets or high-use consumable items,” states Larry Harper, CribMaster president. “Our goal was to develop a flexible system that would automate the process and establish basic accountability for monitoring the usage for an array of MRO items. We strive to have the right inventory management solution regardless of the processes or business culture,” adds Harper.
The ProLock is a small footprint storage cabinet and is available in either twenty-four (24) or twelve (12) door models. Each locker has configurable shelves allowing for easy on-site customization to expand for larger items. The clear doors on each locker combined with white interior provide easy visibility of the stored inventory.
The authorized user simply self-authenticates, selects the required item on the touch screen, and the electronic door lock opens for easy access to the item. The software-driven locker system immediately records the transaction indicating when the tool was issued, when it was returned, and who was accountable. The system also tracks usage by cost center, reduces stock outs, eliminates theft, and increases employee accountability.
CribMaster software driving the ProLock vending system contains the functionality needed to manage any type of indirect material. From tooling, spare parts inventory, PPE, and MRO, CribMaster is a robust and flexible inventory management application that was built by supporting the processes associated with this type of inventory. CribMaster currently has over 5000 customers in 13 countries and is the clear leader in providing technology to assist customers in reducing, tracking inventory movement, enhancing processes and developing more effective replenishment.
