ARIMS system with Bossard

At Bossard, we work to make your factory and company better and smarter. We have a Smart Factory Logistics system that pulls a bunch of elements together to make your factory run as smoothly as possible. We work to get you the materials you need when you need them so you can make products faster.

Our Smart Factory Logistics methodology helps you be more productive. One big part of this approach is our ARIMS system. This system helps us help you gain complete control of your production process. The ARIMS software is the operation dashboard of Smart Factory Logistics.

ARIMS helps you track your orders, manage your stock levels and view your analytics. This software is the brain behind our SmartBin systems. As you may know, our SmartBin system automates ordering parts by measuring and managing your stock in real-time; the ARIMS system is what makes all this possible.

Important features of the ARIMS system include:

  • B2B ERP integration ready
  • Real time data
  • Personalized dashboard
  • Graphical analysis and reports
  • Mobile app for smart devices
  • Operation dashboard
