Receive Material Replenishment Requests via the Echelon SCM Web Portal

Centralized purchasing for pull-based floor stock has never been easier.  Your purchasing and/or manufacturing departments receive Scan2Request requests initiated by warehouse workers, factory workers, or customers.  Material requirements are displayed accordingly in our Echelon SCM web portal, which buyers or production workers can use as a to-do list to fulfill open requirements.

Standalone Operation

No ERP integration is required since your purchasing or manufacturing team will receive Scan2Request notifications over the web.

IoT Hardware

Each tag is able to display the current order status and last receipt date for each virtual bin to provide supply chain visibility directly from the manufacturing or warehouse floor.

All tags are battery-powered and typically last four to five years before requiring replacement.  Wireless communication uses multiple RF channels that are less susceptible to interference in manufacturing and warehouse environments than conventional wi-fi or Bluetooth.

Our mobile software can run either on new or existing hardware devices including smartphones and/or handheld scanners.
