Guest Editorial: Inventory Management Systems

New IMS can help control inventory and keep your shop moving along smoothly.


Most of the major manufacturer’s of lubrication equipment have a state-of-the-art IMS. Contact your local equipment distributor to arrange a shop survey of your current system and how this new style system can be integrated into your existing pumps and reels. These systems are micro processed based computers that increase your shop’s efficiency; do not expect your lubricant supplier to “loan” these systems.

The IMS should be part of your overall IT solution to shop efficiency, inventory management and accurate lubricant data flow into your fleet maintenance software program.
