ACTYLUS Smart Bin System on Display at NIFMSE Booth 2348

Apex Smart Replenishment System Automates Vendor Managed InventoryMason, OH, October 25  ACTYLUS™ Smart Bin System, from Apex Supply Chain Technologies® of Mason, OH, automates inventory replenishment and manages stock. This automation increases productivity and decreases costs for companies and the distributors handling their vendor managed inventory (VMI) programs. ACTYLUS is on display in booth #2348 at the National Industrial Fastener & Mill Supply Expo (NIFMSE) Show in Las Vegas, October 25-27, 2016.

ACTYLUS eliminates the need for manual counting, flags, labels and cards used in traditional Kanban bin systems. The smart bins send automated alerts and reorder notifications to suppliers when a bin’s preset limits are detected. This prevents stock-outs which eliminates the need for distributor counting trips and emergency reorders. This helps keep companies up and running, boosts worker productivity, reduces inventory and grows revenue for companies and their distributors.

Efficiency Metrics Improve by 30% or More
“ACTYLUS is designed to resolve the common issue of inefficiency across many industries and applications,” said Kent Savage, Apex Supply Chain Technologies Founder and CEO. “Our smart bins reduce the cost and time to replenish bins by 30 percent or more, significantly improving a company’s productivity and efficiency.”

ACTYLUS is powered by the Apex Trajectory Cloud™, a secure analytics and inventory replenishment platform that consolidates smart bin data in real-time to give distributors and their customers 24/7 visibility into inventory and restocking requirements. Stock levels can be checked online anytime and anywhere by mobile device. Trajectory automatically generates consumption reports and helps companies identify long-term usage trends.

Flexible Design for Any Application
ACTYLUS can store and monitor any item traditionally stored in bins, from fasteners to small parts, components and supplies. Each bin is brightly lit with interior LED lights to ensure item selection is fast and accurate. Bin status lights change from white to red when pre-set limits are reached to notify workers of each bin’s inventory status. ACTYLUS is available in a range of bin and shelf configurations to accommodate any application.
