INVENTORY MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS
a cost-effective alternative to vending machines for automating VMI
eTurns is cloud-based inventory management software that provides organizations with realtime visibility into remote storeroom inventories and then manages replenishment. Most of
eTurns’ customers are distributors who co-brand the eTurns Soft-ware-as-a-Service (SaaS) and
offer it for free to their customers to help them manage and replenish inventory. Then both the
distributor and customer have real-time visibility into their usage of items and are able to
optimize the inventory and improve their cash-to-cash cycles. Other customers include OEMs
who use eTurns to optimize consumable inventories and maintenance parts for MRO processes.
eTurns has four SaaS offerings with increasing degrees of automation—all
of which reduce the
cost of the traditional techniques of servicing customers’ inventory. The four offerings include:
iPhone replenishment, full inventory management using scanners, inventory management with
RFID tags, and eVMI—sensor managed inventory.
How eVMI works
eTurns puts a Mettler-Toledo scale under a bin of parts on a mobile cart or stationary
rack. The scale measures the weight of te parts (a part can weigh between .012 ounces
and 3,200 pounds) at user-defined intervals. When the weight falls below a minimum, a
replenishment order up to the maximum is sent (through the eTurns eVMI cloud-based
application) to the distributor’s ERP system. The distributor fulfills the order, the parts
are shipped to the facility, and the vendor or customer restocks the bins. Up to 48 eVMI
bins can fit on a standard 7x4-foot rack with six shelves.
eTurns eVMI offers six of the seven benefits of a vending solution: optimized inventory, higher
service levels, reduced cash in inventory, cost-effective replenishment, vendor-managed
inventory, and bins that are not stuffed with excess inventory. The main difference between
automating your VMI
with a vending machine and eTurns eVMI is that vending machines offer controlled access.
According to eTurns CEO Rock Rockwell, the fastener industry doesn’t require that feature
