Be Smart(bin)! - Easy logistics management with SmartBin Flex and SmartLabel

Fast-moving times, as we are experiencing thanks to digitalization and globalization, require optimal time management in order to stand out from the competition. The SmartBin Flex and SmartLabel products make the automation of restock systems and seamless order management possible to ensure that your company's logistical processes and supply chain management improve across the board. PDi Digital's hardware focuses on SmartBin Flex and SmartLabel, which, in combination, are designed to revolutionize and automate the path from product shortages or stock-outs in the warehouse to ordering and restocking along the supply chain.

SmartBin Flex - From traditional bins to unique inventory management

The features of the SmartBin Flex at a glance:
  • Fully automated 24/7 operation

Automated inventory management - How does the restock process work?

The SmartBin Flex is integrated into the assembly workstation layout as a flexible component, with weight sensors continuously checking the stock on hand. The control data is permanently sent to Bossard via radio-frequency in real-time. If logistical bottlenecks occur and the agreed minimum stock level is reached, a refill order is automatically triggered and transmitted to the supplier. The supplier then delivers the ordered inventory items to the customer without any stress. This process is triggered again each time materials or spare parts are used up, so there is no longer any need to worry about possible bottlenecks or holdups within the supply chain.

The benefits of using SmartBin summarized:

  • Shortened order and delivery times
  • Reduced inventory, less storage space required
  • Lean automated process without manual intervention
  • Maintenance-free
  • Fast proactive response to peak demands possible
  • Reduced operating costs
  • Total reliability
  • modern, digital inventory management technique
  • up-to-date stock level information

SmartLabel - Intelligent labels for managing product information

The features of the SmartLabel at a glance:

Illustration of the ordering process with the SmartLabel

Once a previously defined minimum stock level has been reached, a refill order is placed by simply pressing the order button. The data is automatically transmitted to the supplier and processed. The order status and delivery date are continuously visible on the SmartLabel. Depending on the agreement, the products are delivered to the incoming goods department or directly to the assembly workstation, further saving time in your day-to-day warehouse management.
