Akro-Mils, a producer of storage, organization and transport products, has introduced Indicator Bins – a low-cost alternative to high-end inventory control systems.
Each Indicator Bin is both blue and orange. It is available in two sizes and allows users to see when supplies need to be replenished.
Users stock the bin using the divider to designate volume for the inventory reserve. They can pick from the blue side of the bin until reaching the divider, then flip the bin to the orange reserve to show that inventory levels are low. When the bin is replenished it is flipped around again so the blue side is showing.
