TestEquity Introduces New Custom Solutions Inventory Management (CSIM) Service

New Service Automates Production Supply Inventory Maintenance, Reducing Downtime and Costs for Manufacturers

MOORPARK, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 2, 2015) - TestEquity, a value-added distributor of test and measurement equipment, today announced that its Electronic Lab and Production Solutions (ELPS) business unit has launched a new service for manufacturers that eliminates production supply shortages and associated downtime and costs. Reducing the hassle of inventory maintenance to a simple barcode scan, the Custom Solutions Inventory Management (CSIM) service combines an intelligent replenishment automation system with tools to streamline inventory workflows and powerful customization capabilities.

"Managing production supply stock is a difficult and time-consuming task; it's easy to lose track of inventory levels, which can result in costly production-stopping shortages or overstocks," said Dan Copsey, TestEquity president and CEO. "With our new CSIM service, TestEquity does the work for you -- tracking your inventory levels, automatically replenishing your stock, and keeping your production line rolling -- while allowing you to easily customize your experience. In addition, CSIM further lowers operational expenses by reducing transactional and inventory carrying costs, and by consolidating shipments to reduce freight charges. We couldn't be more excited to offer these benefits to our customers."

CSIM service users are provided with a user-friendly online Web portal; an all-welded, preassembled stock cabinet featuring 102 bins and three adjustable shelves; and a rugged handheld terminal with advanced functionality. Using the handheld terminal, they simply scan the code of the item taken from or added to the supply cabinet and enter the amount. This data is analyzed by TestEquity's system at pre-scheduled times to track stock and determine reorder needs.

Inventory levels can be automatically replenished based on preapproved minimum and maximum levels, or users can choose to manually approve orders. Using the convenient CSIM Web portal, users can update reorder levels at any time and add or remove items from inventory. In addition, the portal allows users to customize permissions and reports -- such as bill history, monthly transactions, scan log, item reporting, and usage -- as well as view on-hand inventory levels, usage by month, the total amount of each product used, and more.

The CSIM service is available to TestEquity customers now. More information on the service is available at http://www.testequity.com/csim/.
