There is nothing worse than running out of office supplies when needed most, such as post-it notes, pens, or discovering that the letter “T” on your keyboard sticks; these things make for a frustrating and unproductive work day. An office inventory tracking vending machine filled with supplies will certainly make the majority of office workers satisfied with having access to what they need, leading to greater productivity.
Save on Shrinkage & Costs
Statistics show that by using state-of-the-art iQ technology by Intelligent Dispensing Solutions, vending machines in an office environment can cut down on inventory loss by more than 25%. Employees will swipe their ID badge to retrieve the supplies that they need, this allows you to keep control over the inventory and to know who is taking out what, and how much or many.
Better Customer Service
By having an office supply vending machine nearby, employees won’t have to run to the supply cabinet/closet each time that they need something. You would be surprised how often an office employee runs out of supplies each day. If the employee is also responsible for answering the phones or greeting customers, it may take them away from their desk, which could lead to a loss in business.
What Supplies Could go in the Office Vending Machine?
Start with the basics – pens, post-it notes, paper clips, staplers/staples/staple remover, tape, envelopes in an assortment of sizes, pads of paper, and items your office employees use on a frequent basis. You may also consider putting in office equipment such as keyboards, flash drives, and ether cords. It’s time consuming to fill out a requisition sheet for equipment and supplies. It is even more time consuming and less productive to have an employee run to an office supply store to purchase a new keyboard or a box of envelopes.
Another important aspect of having an office supply vending machine is to keep it stocked at all times. Otherwise, time will be wasted and productivity lost while someone treks to the supply room to search for the missing item(s) to restock the office vending machine. Remember it’s supposed to make your employees happier, healthier and more productive.
