The combination of the Tooling Cloud, your smartphone or tablet, a low priced bar code reader and these smart labels can create a powerful vending solution without the cost, maintenance and limited capacity of vending machines. The smart labels can be used on any shelf, bin, storage drawer dividers and tool boxes.
