Turnkey Solution for Integrated Suppliers
As the maintenance parts industry becomes more competitive, industrial suppliers are continually challenged to remain profitable while staying competitive. To counteract shrinking margins on commoditized MRO parts and customers that demand a high level of service without guaranteeing sales, many distributors are turning to integrated supply as their business model.
CompuCRIBTM: The Core Solution
At the core of our solution is proven industrial storage technology, CompuCRIBTM, a vertically-oriented MRO supply crib that grows up instead of out. With CompuCRIBTM, you gain an integrated supply program that not only reduces your management costs, but uses less of your customer’s valuable floor space.
Customized system. CompuCRIBTM is a modular system that combines automated supply storage equipment with specialized software and automatic tool dispensers. We can help you choose components to create a customized system that meets your client’s exact needs. And, we can even create a custom interface to link CompuCRIBTM with existing inventory management software or tool dispensers!
The CompuCRIBTM Advantage
CompuCRIBTM offers distinct advantages over traditional MRO supply crib setups. Instead of managing inventory using the “hardware store” methodology, CompuCRIBTM combines automated parts storage equipment with specialized software to bring new levels of efficiency, security and accuracy to inventory management.
Reduced costs. For an integrated supplier, each person saved in the management of an MRO crib translates to about $40K in cost savings a year. The automation and security features of CompuCRIBTM allow plant personnel to access parts without a round-the-clock attendant. This eliminates much of your crib labor, which reduces your overall management costs.
Guaranteed Revenue. CompuCRIBTM provides a compelling incentive for your customers to lock in long-term integrated supply contracts. In most cases, a four-year contract will cover the cost of your CompuCRIBTM investment while providing you with a steady stream of guaranteed revenue. Competitive advantage. CompuCRIB’s vertical design and secure automation differentiates you from your competition. Let us show you how to structure a contract that protects your investment.
