Pre-kitting is the process of preparing in advance the products necessary to fill machines for each location. This has proven to be a very time and cost saving step from the whole process of vending machine servicing process.
The usual scenario of servicing a location is the following: the driver rides to the location, goes inside to check remaining inventory, goes back out to the truck to find and load the products that need to be restocked, then heads back inside and finally restocks the machines.
Luckily, VendSoft can make the process easier by preparing a Pre-kitting report for you. The system calculates the quantity of every product needed to refill the machines and displays the data aggregated for the whole trip and also per machine.
Necessary quantity per product is calculated as Average Vends per Day * Number of days since last fill.
First part of the report is the Prekitting Summary. Here you can see the list of all products that are included in all machines in the trip.
For each product you can see total needed quantity (Product to load), number of machines that contain this product (Used in #machines) and current quantity in the warehouse.
For clarity products are grouped by product type: Bevarage, Food, etc.
In the detailed part of the report you will see listed all machines that are included in the trip.
Each machine has all its products listed and for each product you can see info about Last Fill Level in the machine, Average vends per day and number of items that the system predicted were sold since last visit.
Prekitting report is available in PDF format, as well as in Excel format to let you make some adjustments to the report.
To open report in excel format, click on the arrow next to
Prekitting button and select
Visit the machines in the trip and record the data from servicing the machines on paper or using VendSoft mobile application. After that you should enter trip results in the system.
