SupplyPro Delivers Absolute Accountability With SupplySystem Scale Module

Sept. 13, 2018

SupplyPro, a leading industrial materials management solutions provider, today announced the release and availability of SupplySystem Scale Module. Using industry-leading weight-based sensing technology, SupplySystem Scale Module, or SupplyScale™, delivers absolute accountability at the item level with amazing ease-of-use. SupplyScale quickly and accurately calculates the number of items taken, returned, or restocked, with no repackaging.

“Industrial distributors rely on SupplyPro’s comprehensive, full-service solutions to deliver the best inventory control systems for their own needs and for those of their customers,” said Floyd Miller, CEO, SupplyPro. “We are excited to offer companies a cost-effective solution when they have higher quantities of smaller items to manage.”

SupplyScale delivers quick and easy access to intuitive menus and requires minimal steps for set-up and load. SupplyScale boasts an easy-to-complete rapid-refill feature eliminating the need for time-consuming individual item counting. SupplyScale also provides customers with improved accountability and accuracy with locked doors to avoid inventory cross contamination. By using differential versus absolute weight-based technology, SupplyScale is able to dramatically reduce costly Ghost Transactions resulting from environmental issues of humidity, temperature and vibration. The SupplySystem Scale Module significantly improves accuracy over existing open stock weight-based systems and reduces the need for ongoing calibration and frequent maintenance. This lowers the total cost of ownership for distributors, giving them a clear market advantage and point of differentiation.

“SupplySystem Scale Module is a great solution especially for consumables; fasteners, fittings, bin-stock items, welding supplies, spare parts and more,” continued Miller. “It quickly and accurately calculates individual items or handfuls of inventory being taken or returned.”

SupplySystem Scale Module Features: 

  • Inventory count automatically adjusted upon completed transaction
  • Pick-to-light functionality on all door locations
  • Supports multiple module configurations
  • Minimal calibration maintenance
  • Supports up to 32 scale modules per controller

Scale-based door modules are available today for the single deep SupplySystem in addition to the scale-based drawer modules available in the traditional SupplyScale version of the SmartDrawer®. SupplyPro’s SupplyConfigurator application and Inventory Solution Delivery experts are available to provide the most efficient and cost-effective configuration recommendations based on inventory requirements and control criteria.
