Advanced SUPPLY  

Advanced Supply, what does this really mean? Productivity’s Advanced Supply is a group of dedicated employees that serve specific customers focused on improving the process in which tooling and supplies are acquired, stored, used, tracked, issued and reported on. Productivity Inc has many custom, but flexible solutions designed to decrease your total cost of ownership in tooling and supplies. We provide a wide variety of point-of-use dispensing machines that can include complete tool management systems.

Some immediate benefits include:

  • Reduce redundancies
  • Minimize travel with point-of-use tool storage & dispensing systems
  • Reduce costly UPS red shipments
  • Track and monitor tool usage
  • Streamline your ordering process
  • Decrease consumption by utilizing automation and control
  • Reduce tooling chaos
  • Lower inventory levels

Many customers realize over 10% savings in the first several months after implementation.

Dispensing systems allow companies to store tools securely and efficiently at the point-of-use. Operators no longer need to travel across the building to a tool crib just to get replacement tools. When tool dispensing systems are interfaced with an effective tool management software, it greatly enhances the systems effectiveness. Managing usage by job, department or employee can give companies valuable information for costing jobs or help identify areas of potential process improvements. In line with JIT manufacturing, these systems allow for continuous improvement, elimination of waste, and a more organized workplace. When properly implemented, our Advanced Supply system will strengthen the competitiveness of your organization.

Productivity Inc offers a variety of tool dispensing systems and tool management software including screw feed, conveyor, carousel, automated drawer and individual compartment style. Locking cabinets and lockers are also available.
