Simplify the Supply Chain

June 2, 2017

According to recent research from Accenture, four out of five mining and metals companies plan to increase spending on digital technologies over the next three years. Perhaps it’s no surprise that even the mining industry is mimicking global technology companies by streamlining their processes through innovation. As the company that invented supply vending nearly a quarter-century ago, IVM has seen a parallel shift in the way workplace supplies are approached.

Yet it’s astounding to think that even today, within legacy firms and tech upstarts, employee supply-ordering is performed manually. Talented staff members within IT departments are encumbered by supply requests, while employees lose productivity as they dutifully wait for the equipment they need to perform their work. The systems of old need a reboot.

Today, IVM helps some of the biggest names in technology, manufacturing healthcare and beyond transform in the post-digital age and empower their employees.

In addition to the machines themselves, IVM customers have access to a robust back-end platform for real-time reporting and automated re-ordering – calibrated to a standard that’s far more efficient than merely ordering supplies on a whim would be.

Smart vending solutions provide a number of benefits, including ease of employee access, automated inventory management and implied oversight over who requests what – yielding substantial supply savings.

In today’s ever-evolving business landscapes, it’s time to change the way your employees get the tools they need to get to work.
