Why centralise PPE distribution?
The manual distribution of PPE in the various business departments originates a long and complex process that makes it difficult to track the distribution that has taken place and generates numerous inefficiencies for the warehouse and the Purchasing Office, such as waste from repetitive and low-value-added activities, material storage, movements and unnecessary time wasting.
Advantages of automatic PPE dispensers
Using the automatic dispensers of PPE, the time consumption of associated staff is greatly reduced: it will be the vending machine that will perform the repetitive and low-value-added functions carried out previously by the warehouse worker and the Head of the Purchasing Office. The vending machine keeps track of all the withdrawals made and automatically communicates to the with the goods to be reordered.
