The Opticrib AWM's

OptiCrib® is designed to leverage AWM’s Automated Inventory Intelligence (Aii®) ‘frictionless’ retail solutions revolutionizing industrial storeroom management. Driven by AWM’s state-of-the-art inventory tracking software, the platform utilizes ruggedized high-definition optical sensors combined with precise weight-sensing technology to automate intelligence into on-the-shelf inventory levels, providing an accurate and continuously-available (24/7), total-accountability solution for efficient management of durable and consumable materials.


Utilizing super-wide-angle, low-light HD cameras and precise shelf scales, the OptiCrib® solution can view and track virtually any product in an industrial storeroom environment. OptiCrib® removes productivity barriers and enables authorized personnel 24/7 access to storeroom inventories without requirements for scanning or logging. When inventory is removed from a bin, transactions are automatically recorded, based upon multi-modal Aii® characteristics. It is highly accurate, and usage data can be provided instantaneously. OptiCrib® is simply the most robust inventory management tool available for the industrial storeroom.
