Kennametal customer Jason Lague, Set-up Coordinator for White Hall Industries (Ludington, MI), credits his ToolBOSS vending systems for helping him avoid out-of-stock tools and eliminate costly expedited freight and machine downtime. In this video Jason shares details about the advantages of this system and the huge benefits it provides for White Hall.
Ease of Use
Jason reports that one of the best things about ToolBOSS for him is “ease of use.” Ease of running reports, and collecting tool usage information rank high for him.
Daily Email Reports
He also likes the emails he receives every morning that report on what’s below minimum and needs to be ordered. This means he doesn’t have to manually check to see what they have on hand.
Items that won’t fit in a drawer can be managed with a key that allows access to a cabinet that’s controlled by the ToolBOSS.
White Hall saw a 30% reduction in costs by using the ToolBOSS. Prior to that they were running out of tools, shipping next-day-air, and constantly having machines down. Today those problems are gone. Watch the video to see Jason’s candid thoughts about how much things have changed since installing the ToolBOSS.
