If you would prefer to monitor and generate orders using your own employee labor, Fastenal will organize and label your part locations and provide you with an iPod-based scanning solution. Once the system is in place, we can either ship orders to your dock or put them away at the point of use, depending on your needs.
Step 1: Implementation
Fastenal creates labels, puts labels on bins, and loads parts onto Fastenal.com.
Step 2: Scan Items That Need Replenishment
Use your iPod device to scan preset amounts for single-scan use or adjust amounts as you scan.
Step 3: Review and Place Order
Use the device to review and submit orders via an active Internet connection to Fastenal.com.
Step 4: Continuous Improvement
Fastenal provides usage reporting by location and recommends opportunities to optimize min/max levels, standardize parts, and make other improvements to the program.
In short, WE implement the system, YOU do the scanning and ordering, and WE provide local inventory and service to keep the product flowing. This is a great fit for union environments, high-security facilities, and any business that prefers a customer-managed, Fastenal-supported inventory solution.
