Alro Portable Ordering System (APOS):

APOS is Alro’s low cost, highly efficient, portable barcode scanning system for inventory replenishment. APOS is a visual reordering system using Kanban replenishment principles. It works well with lower cost items in “free-issue” areas throughout the plant or in central crib areas where a perpetual on-hand inventory control system does not make sense.

Highlights of the Alro Portable Ordering System (APOS):
  • Helps you take control of items typically not tracked through other inventory control systems
  • Streamlines replenishment and paperwork process
  • Automates the ordering process through a dedicated visual inventory replenishment program
  • Easily manages open access areas, central cribs or tooling in cells
  • User provides Alro with a list of tools to manage using APOS
  • User prints barcoded labels for each item to affix to shelf or bin location
  • User scans barcoded label for each item needing to be replenished
  • User plugs scanner into PC
  • PC will retrieve from Alro descriptions, pricing and reorder quantities
  • User adds PO number if desired and order is uploaded to Alro

Alro Industrial Supply also offers SmartCell™, an advanced technology innovation designed to provide tooling security, tracking and auto-replenishment at the point of use or within a crib environment.
