Optimas OE Solutions, a global manufacturer and distributor of precision-made fasteners and supply chain solutions, has introduced a new contactless managed inventory system to its growing line of value-added services.
The ongoing global pandemic has given rise to an increased focus on safety within the workplace and renewed efforts, industry-wide, to seek out new and improved productivity methods.
Part of the company’s range of manufacturing solutions, the contactless replenishment system available from Optimas meets this demand by offering customers a new way to keep valued team members safe from challenges posed by COVID-19 whilst dramatically reducing the time and cost required to reorder components.
Using a turnkey, fully delivered and installed rack and bin system, coupled with an advanced hand-held scanner, staff can simply scan a barcode to consolidate and reorder the parts required. This smart technology also ensures there is no requirement for dedicated on-site staffing and eliminates the need for direct contact with the shelved items. Additionally, Optimas can provide all the necessary staff training virtually, covering all aspects of the replenishment process and best practices.
“At Optimas, we are continually looking to offer the right services at the right time to our customers in an ever-changing environment. We are really excited about this latest value-added service in our programme that facilitates a secure way of providing a managed inventory service whilst keeping the workplace safe,” explained Justin Parker, Senior Director, Business Development & Commercial.
With many of the company’s fasteners manufactured in the UK, bolstered by an increased onshore stockholding, Optimas has taken the necessary steps to mitigate importation delays and offset tariff uncertainty resulting from Brexit. This continuity of supply safeguards customers from unexpected lead times, additional costs, and ensures stock is delivered on time, every time.
