Santa Ana, CA-AutoCrib, Inc. unveiled its new Guardrail software, designed to simplify and automate the laborious task of building databases for industrial vending systems. Guardrail is the first-of-its-kind in the industry, providing an effective and easy way to compile an industrial vending machine framework and improve the user experience, says the company. AutoCrib is currently offering this time-saving software free of charge. Guardrail software prompts users to outline the type of descriptions needed for establishing an industrial vending machine including the description of the products, item codes, supplier part numbers, costing and other characteristics. As the user enters data, the Guardrail software automatically screens it for data entry errors—then provides suggestions on how the user might improve the data, and ultimately the functionality of the system. The system allows for free-form data entry or the importation of data from existing systems using import tools. The same database integrity checks are made when a user imports data, as opposed to key-punching it. Guardrail software also works to pre-configure the industrial vending machine or point-of-use dispensing device—and can either suggest the size of machine the user should purchase, the number of bins needed or tell the user that he/she has reached the capacity of the machine purchased.
