By David Kitchenham Monday, 7th February 2022 0 Comments Sandvik launches CRIBWISE SaaS tooling inventory management technology DESIGN & planning Automation, a division within Sandvik Machining and Manufacturing Solutions, is launching CRIBWISE, a new software as a service platform in the U.K and Ireland. CRIBWISE is a subscription-based cloud tooling inventory management solution that helps manufacturing businesses take control of their tooling inventory and related processes. The software enables tool, spare part and equipment management, automated purchase and service orders, automated tool dispensing manufacturer catalogue services and smart reporting. CRIBWISE is modular, customisable and easy to integrate for all sides of machine shops. It helps improve productivity and machine life by reducing administrative time, hours spent searching for tools and production and maintenance delays. It also cuts unnecessary expenditure due to over-purchasing and over-stocking. Without an effective tool-management system, machine shops can find themselves doing one of two things; rush orders of new tools when inventories are depleted unexpectedly or stock more tools than needed so that they do not run out in the first place. Both can significantly add costs and also cause problems on the shop floor. Head of CRIBWISE, Joakim Johansson says 2″Tooling costs can easily run into tens of thousands of pounds and much of this can be attributed to outdated and unconsolidated tooling inventories that take up space and cause frustration” He adds: With standardised and consolidated tooling inventory systems like CRIBWISE, machine shops can streamline purchasing, reduce costs and improve stock management. In fact our ‘early-bird’ customers have reduced tooling and equipment inventory costs by as much as 20%Joakim Johansson, Head of CRIBWISE ” An effective tool management system will also generate data that owners and managers can use to make more informed strategic decisions about workforce productivity, machine optimisation, expenditure and inventory size” To find out how CRIBWISE could help your business click here Post navigation Previous Post KNIPEX expands its Tethered Tools range Next Post Milwaukee and Speedy Hire announce a UK exclusivity deal David Kitchenham Tool loving geek and tech head from PAL Media.
