The greatest challenge of any maintenance organisation is ensuring you have the parts you need, when you need them. Our inventory services mean that you are never without the parts you need to get the job done.
This allows you to increase your service levels whilst keeping your inventory to a minimum. This gives ATM customers a better service and reduces inventory costs.
Reducing The Parts Cycle
The key to reducing large part inventories is to allow parts to flow quickly through the system so parts can be remanufactured and placed back into circulation with minimal downtime.
Effective parts tracking and reducing repair turn-around-times is the most effective way of achieving this. Additionally, providing your repairs processes are robust, arrival on site failures are reduced to nil.
Optimal Inventory Procurement
Our inventory management system has been specifically designed to manage ATM parts inventories, and already controls tens of thousands of NCR, Wincor and Diebold parts.
This means we can work with you to compile a forecast that’s based on demand by part number, based on historical usage, seasonality and substitutions.
We can calculate the optimum level of inventory to hold and then leverage our global ATM supply chain to make sure you have the best parts at the best price.
Being able to get your items to where you need in a timely fashion is important not just to you but to the end user too because they want to be able to access their cash whenever they choose.
Thanks to our advanced logistics network and distribution hubs in Europe and North America, we are able to offer cost effective transit solutions that ensure the correct parts are sent to and from your engineers.
Disposing of Excess Inventory
As ATM estates migrate to newer devices, demand for older parts will naturally decline.
In concert with new technology phasing in, we gradually downscale your inventory, disposing of the excess parts as soon as demand starts to decline and before the market is flooded with other sellers.
TestLink’s inventory system allows the user to see these trends in demand and alert your inventory planners.
We are fortunate to have access to a variety of channels through which we can dispose of excess inventory and ensure the best price is achieved.
Vendor Owned Inventory
For those who need the utmost flexibility with their inventory management, TestLink are able to offer a Vendor Owned Inventory (VOI) service, allowing you to outsource the ownership of your inventory to us as well as its management.
This approach to ATM inventory allows you to clear excess inventory and minimise the risk exposure of taking on additional inventory, all while making sure your maintenance operation can increase service levels and instantly respond to any fluctuation in demand.
