Maximize your inventory space

Increase your storage capacity from 20 to 50 percent in a given area using the ModuMax high-density storage system. The system allows many areas throughout the hospital to better organize, manage and control inventories and the labor costs that are so closely linked to inventory management. Primary targets are the OR and CSD (which can also meet new JAHCO guidelines using this system). Materials handling, ER and ICU can also dramatically increase savings. Options include KanBan dual-bin inventory and RFID systems. DSI Direct
