Apex Supply Chain Technologies, which manufactures lockers for dispensing mobile equipment and assets to workers in the distribution center, was highlighting its Lenz decision-support tool this week at Modex 2018. Lenz provides a dashboard view of mobile asset use and trends at your warehouse or distribution center.
It works like this: At the start of the day, warehouse associates scan their identification badges at the Apex locker system to receive the mobile asset that they need for their job, such as a bar-code reader, smartphone, or headset. The locker holding the device unlocks, allowing the worker to retrieve it. At the end of the shift, the worker scans in again to return the device. The data the equipment gathers about the assets and workers are sent to Apex's Trajectory cloud software system. Lenz then takes the information and displays it as easy-to-read graphs and pie charts for supervisors and managers. Managers, for example, can track asset utilization rates or how good employees are about checking mobile equipment back in.
