Integrated Supply Banner

The benefits associated with a successful integrated supply program applies to national, regional and single location agreements. The concept of supplier reduction, by doing more with fewer committed partners, has no boundaries. In 1980, Steiner recognized this trend and strategically invested in personnel, facilities, new supplier relationships and technology.

Automated dispensing “vending” systems are ideal for items where control and ease of access are both required. Point-of-use availability, user accountability, controlled access, 24-hour accessibility, automated re-ordering, and real-time reporting are just a few of the benefits that can be achieved with automated dispensing technology on your shop floor. Most importantly, these benefits typically translate up to a 30% reduction in usage. Employee “walk-around” time is significantly decreased when items are available at the point-of-use. Flexible, user-friendly software for managing dispensing stations as well as the storeroom in a single integrated package, provides a comprehensive solution for your inventory management job costing needs.
