Since October 2010 SupplyPro has introduced the following products/software:

SupplyLocker EXT Series - Add Locker Control at the Right Price

The SupplyLocker EXT Series extends material control beyond consumables. This industrial locker manages tools, manufacturing and safety supplies and other assets. Two device options are available - an 8-door unit for controlling larger items and 16-door unit for medium-sized items, customers can choose the configuration that best fits their needs. The EXT Series is the perfect add-on to existing SupplyPro systems and features LED lighting, Lexan clear doors and advanced control capabilities including tool and gage calibration, certification standards, lock-down requirements, loan periods, quantity limits, tool rotation and much more. The SupplyLocker EXT series is paired with a SupplyBay with keypad and requires no additional application and support fees.

SupplyBay 3.0 - Absolute Control with the Industry's Best ROI

SupplyTower - Tall, Narrow Material Storage in a Slim Locker Footprint

The SupplyTower is a locker solution designed specifically for items that are tall and narrow, like torque wrenches. Rather than placing materials in a crib where access is either limited or open for anyone to take, the SupplyTower provides 24x7x365 access for items previously too long to fit in a standard locker.

SupplyPro Virtual Inventory Module (VIM) - Transaction Tracking Outside the Device

The SupplyPro Virtual Inventory Module (VIM) allows clients with SupplyLinks to track transactions for products not physically within a SupplyPro device. With proper user participation, items are easily tracked with full SupplyPort reporting capabilities and business rules.

The SBD-Maxx harnesses SupplyPro's proprietary SmartDrawer Box Dispenser (SBD) technology to deliver simple and easy to use control of more than 400 parts and tooling with no repackaging. Its smart technology can:

o Accurately provide discrete tool use and tracking analysis (by job, machine, etc.)

o Automate use of reworks before new

o Provide electronic ordering and automated inventory alert notification

o Eliminate waste and excess inventory

o Enforce return of used tools for inspection before operator can dispense again
SmartDrawer 48-Lid - High Density Storage in a Small Footprint

The SmartDrawer 48-lid doubles the capacity of a single SmartDrawer allowing individual control of up to 48 dispensing SKUs in one drawer. This cover is ideal for expensive carbide taps, reamers, inserts, batteries and drill bits. Specially designed sloped trays allow for easy part removal and loading.
