OMAHA PUBLIC POWER DISTRICT (OPPD)

Reduce Spend, Improve Accounting and Increase Productivity

OPPD needed to reduce the total spend on inventory -- but keep items easily accessible 24/7. They also needed to track items issued by department and employee to help with department billing.

Challenge

Solution

AutoCrib's automated point-of-use dispensing machine RoboCrib 1000 was positioned on the line dock that services more than 20 trucks for construction and maintenance projects.

Phase 2 will include both RoboCrib and AutoLockers at their coal generation plant. This will help with the management of tools, test kits and gauges. The new system will allow OPPD to bill outside contractors for items they use.
