Manage Indirect Inventory Right at the Production Site with Our Scalable Solutions

Indirect inventory is one of the most difficult kinds of assets to manage, with thousands of SKUs passing through your operation every day. Although accounting for only 20% of your material spend, MRO items present unique challenges: over-ordering is wasteful, while a stockout can cause production to come to a halt. And, there is often little visibility into where all the inventory goes once it’s off the truck.

For nearly 30 years, CribMaster has helped manage consumable and durable inventory using inventory vending machines installed right at the point-of-use, cutting back the time workers spend walking to and from the storeroom, while tracking usage and accountability. Powered by CribMaster software, our machines monitor usage to make sure the materials you need are always available, without over-ordering. This visibility helps prevent stockouts and saves money on items that aren’t being used – meaning you’ll worry less about inventory and get back to what matters.

Our Point of Use vending category can help you solve pain points like: 

Tool Tracking

Require workers to badge in before taking an item so you have record of who took it, where it was used, and when it was returned. Reduce inventory hoarding and overuse, while analysing usage to maximise inventory availability.


See what inventory is running low so you only order what you need, when you need it. Decrease wasteful spending and maximise the inventory you already have while identifying the exact inventory types being used.

Loss of Productivity

Looking for misplaced materials can be a huge drain on productivity, and can even bring production to a halt until a critical item is found or returned. Our point-of-use solutions bring materials and inventory right to the source of the work, cutting down on time-consuming trips to the storeroom or tool crib, and ensuring items are right where they should be.

Our solutions are quick to adopt, but our team of experts is always here if you need us.

We’re one of the most scalable solutions in the industry, so your CribMaster program can grow at the pace that’s comfortable for your business. Explore our offering of Point-of-Use vending machines below or give us a call and talk to one of our experts to find the right solution for you.
