IDS - iVendTech

Do your employees have easy and convenient access to the supplies they need without any hassle? Many studies have shown that employees can waste significant amounts of time searching for necessary supplies and equipment in the workplace. This time spent reduces employee productivity and can incur hidden costs for your business. iVendTech, an inventory management software developed by IDS, can help companies balance the convenience of having readily available and accessible supplies and obtaining the level of control and tracking necessary. 

Why The Traditional Supply Closet & Service Desk Is a Time & Productivity Killer 

Today’s supply requirements are varied and include charging cables, earbuds, adapters, monitors, and more. Hence, an open closet can prove a financial disadvantage to employers due to overuse of supplies and shrinkage caused by a lack of inventory control. Some employers responded by having their supply closets locked. Alternative suggestion: But as it turns out, this setup is a productivity nightmare. Who wants to waste time tracking down the keyholder for access? A service desk might seem like a solution. However, it can end up causing even more chaos and wasted time. Why have your talented employees bogged down with supply management when they could be working on high-value tasks instead?

Benefits That Matter 

Secure, Comprehensive, Productive


Employees often leave their desks to pick up items, which are given out for free without any record. These transactions result in unreliable and inaccurate data for reordering or accountability purposes. Without attendants, managers develop innovative ways to obtain required supplies, like using open store rooms or free-issue bins, which leads to uncontrolled and untracked consumption. 

iVendTech vending machines are equipped with advanced technology to help decrease costs by preventing shrinkage caused by unaccounted supplies.


You can achieve total control over your inventory and have a clear idea of its status, thanks to the platform’s real-time reporting system and administrative accountability features. Our reporting tools provide access to sales data, restocking lists, user visibility, and alerts when inventory levels run low. 


Using iVendTech office supply vending machines can reduce employees’ time in IT departments and on phone calls searching for office supply replacements. It enables employees to quickly obtain necessary items such as a mouse or keyboard, thus enhancing productivity and convenience. 

iQ Technology 

The iQ Technology software serves as the central processing unit of the IDS systems, empowering managers to take control of a typically complicated inventory scenario and customize it according to their liking. For example, they can track sales remotely and create a unique point-of-sale display that caters to different customers. Notifications will be sent through email or text, providing information on a low stock position, power loss, connectivity issues, etc. Users can access office supplies from any iVendTech machine, and managers have real-time inventory and warehouse control. This is not something you find in the many advanced machines that roll out daily, as not all are equipped with this iQ technology.
