Point of Use Solutions
Every POU transaction is controlled and recorded, every item is visible across the enterprise, and replenishment orders can be transmitted to suppliers without the expense and overhead associated with manual methods.
Flexibility, Control and Advanced Technology
Nexiant offers a wide range of Point-of-Use (POU) solutions to provide control and automated dispensing of MRO items. We design and manufacture to our own specifications, including exclusive, patented designs that are available nowhere else. Nexiant POU solutions offer the flexibility to accommodate anything from high-security to high-volume to open stock to bulky items, and to locate them where they can be accessed 24/7 by authorized personnel.
All our POU solutions are web-connected and controlled by Nexiant 8, our cloud-based, Lean MRO software. This means that every POU transaction is controlled and recorded, every item is visible across the enterprise, and replenishment orders can be transmitted to suppliers without the expense and overhead associated with manual methods.
Everyone Wins with Nexiant POU
Nexiant POU solutions streamline and simplify operations for everyone involved in the MRO supply-chain:
- Materials and purchasing managers rely on Nexiant POU to control and track material usage. Using our dispensing solutions, they keep MRO items flowing 24/7 while reducing storeroom and order processing costs.
- Operations staff can obtain materials quickly and easily without leaving their work area. They can quickly locate needed items, request additional items, and return to work without separately recording transactions. Nexiant POU systems automatically and accurately log each transaction, every time.
- Suppliers benefit from consolidated, automated replenishment orders that flow directly into their order management systems without call center or branch staff assistance.
The First Link in Your Lean MRO Supply Chain
Controlling and tracking usage is the first, key step in transforming your MRO supply-chain. Over time, it helps you to locate the right items in the right place at the right time in order to support operations without excess and obsolete inventory. In fact, Nexiant Point-of-Use technology is truly the first link in your Lean MRO supply-chain. Our dispensing systems are configured to meet your specific needs. We offer a broad range of options within the following three product families:
Nexiant Secure – carousel-based solutions to provide high-security, single-item dispensing.
Nexiant Select – locker-based solutions that handle diverse items and allow users to visually locate required materials.
Nexiant Safety– coil-based solutions that provide the simplest option for managing high-volume items.
Configuration options allow you to determine the number of SKU’s within each system, accommodate different sized items in the same cabinet, and support a full range of access controls.
An Integrated Approach
Nexiant’s Point-of-Use solutions connect with Nexiant 8, which in turn integrates with ERP, maintenance management, and supplier order management systems to provide a single system for visibility and control of all your MRO materials. This powerful combination reduces consumption and improves employee productivity, while reducing labor and capturing activity-based accounting data.
Nexiant 8 also provides management of all other MRO items not delivered via point-of-use systems. Our software supports the full range of storeroom operations, including vendor managed inventory functions.
