TECHNOLOGY CAPABILITIES

Weigh Scale technology

How it Works

  • VMI weigh scales set-up per piece weight
  • Material is removed from bin for consumption
  • Sapphire polls VMI weigh scales multiple times a day providing a real time update of stocking level
  • VMI weigh scales setup with an automated reorder points
  • Replenishment order transmitted to Gexpro ERP

 

Benefits

  • Provides real time inventory management
  • Automated reorder points
  • Eliminates stock-outs by monitoring usage with no labor cost
  • Optimizes Inventory by adjusting min/max after trending usage
  • 24/7/365 visibility and monitoring of inventory
  • Removes human error

 

 

Smart Bin

How it Works

  • Smart Bin setup per piece weight
  • Material is removed from bin for consumption
  • Smart Bin setup with an automated reorder points
  • Replenishment order transmitted to Gexpro ERP

 

Benefits

  • Smart Bin Solutions - Help Ensure Bulk Section is Always Stocked
  • Smarted Spaces Technology - Automated Replenishment
  • Alerts in Established Quantities Eliminates Stock - outs & Over Orders
  • Well Lit Bin Compartments
  • Strong ROI on labour reduction and inventory right sizing

 

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

How it Works

  • RFID Tags have an integrated circuit and an antenna, which are used to transmit data to the RFID reader
  • RFID Reader recieves the radio waves from the tag and converts into a more usable form of data
  • Converted data from the tags is then transferred to Sapphire, where it can be stored and analyzed at a later time

 

Benefits

  • Automated reorder points
  • Eliminates stock outs by monitoring usage with no labor cost
  • Perform complete physical inventory before making a replenishment run
  • Improved inventory tracking & traceability
  • 24/7/365 visibility and monitoring of inventory
  • Removes human error
