MASON, OH — Apex Supply Chain Technologies has introduced Axcess 6100 series automated locker systems to manage handheld electronics, an ideal solution for distribution centers that increasingly rely on these devices. The intelligent, self-service, cloud-based lockers automate management of critical assets, which could include handheld scanners, tablets, smart phones and radio headsets.
Axcess lockers automate check-out and check-in of devices through the use of personalized codes or identification cards. The Apex Trajectory Cloud, the brains behind each locker, records who took what, when and where. Trajectory delivers actionable reports, usage patterns and other data. It can send an automatic notification to supervisors and employees if a scanner is past-due to be returned, and even if it is due for maintenance.
With this greater level of control also comes more accountability among employees who then take more care with the handheld electronics they use. The system eliminates time lost checking out and checking in the assets on each shift, as well as time lost searching for missing devices.
For example, in the precisely-timed environment of a large distribution center, a handful of lost scanners could disrupt an entire shift. Axcess cloud-based lockers ensure that all scanners will be accounted for, fully charged and ready to go when needed, with no time lost searching for missing devices or queuing to check them in and out at each shift change.
