From sensor to boardroom

Inventory control architecture is quite simple: All you need is field devices, gateways and the right software package. And, of course, a partner on whom you can rely in the configuration of components and systems. With our portfolio of measurement instruments, gateways and software packages, we can customise a solution which perfectly fits your needs:

Simple visualisation of silos and tanks

It is typical for manufacturing companies that stock values are not measured and displayed consistently in real-time. As a result, the treatment of inventory data is largely manual leading to data errors as well as labour duplication. This often causes high stock levels, high inventory costs and decisions that are based on feelings, not on facts. Our solutions for inventory control guarantee simple monitoring and visualization of tanks and silos to solve the typical problems mentioned.

Central inventory monitoring of multiple plants or sites

Nowadays, businesses are pushing into new regions due to increasing needs to reduce costs and to extend into new business opportunities. If you can collect real-time inventory information across the world, you have the best chance of utilising existing material stocks and reducing locked-in inventory costs. Our local interfaces and SupplyCare provide you with the exact information in real time for profound decision making even throughout an enterprise.

Vendor managed inventory

The automated and efficient management of business processes must not be confined to the company alone. Collaborating with business partners, more efficient business models can evolve. One such model is Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI), where the supplier is responsible for the replenishment and delivery of material to customers.
