Minimize the Cost of Tools

Matrix Tool Management System controls inventory, streamlines purchasing and drives down costs.  With standardizing the inventory control and keeping track of stocks can help understand the workflow, better work environment and follow back on the performance of each job. Matrix achieves Max and Min on the stock levels. Most of the production plants are working with 10%-40% excess or dead items on their shelves. Matrix can help to optimize inventory and keep only the tools which are needed.  The frequency of orders, number of order lines and manual counting of stock that cannot be located or reported. Matrix can literally slash purchasing costs by up to 50%. The automated purchasing module built into the software can turn the daily last-minute orders into a controlled weekly process that takes barely minutes to complete. While this is so basic to good production floor management, it cannot happen without a mechanism to limit access only to tools approved for a specific job. Matrix can control the issue of items by job and part so that you avoid the risks of using the wrong tools and risking damaged or scrapped parts.
