Customer Inventory Management System (Customer IMS)
In our ongoing effort to help you reduce costs, Swagelok Penn has developed a more efficient way for you to manage your inventories. Our Inventory Management System™ (IMS™) is designed to make it easier for you to manage your inventory while helping you reduce your operating costs. IMS™ is a web-based software application that simplifies and speeds the transfer of information between your site and ours. It provides a 24 hour on-line service interface, improves order accuracy, provides order confirmation and tracking, and makes an uninterrupted supply of Swagelok components available when you need them.
The IMS™ system is tailored to your needs. If you desire, we can include product storage and automatic replenishment. Our product storage bins incorporate a distinctive labeling system with pictures of each part, part numbers, descriptions, bar codes, and can include your unique stocking numbers to help make it easy to find the components you need. Performance reports help document and track all the Swagelok components and quantities delivered to you each month. Contact us to learn more.
