Comparing and Contrasting SmartBin Flex and SmartLabel

If you’re looking for a way to automatically track your stock or install a smart inventory system, Bossard would like to introduce our SmartBin Flex and SmartLabel options. Both can increase your efficiency and enhance your profitability.


The SmartBin Flex connects a bin to a weight sensor, forming an independent entity used anywhere in your facility. It works well if you do not have a storage system set up for your stock or are thinking of changing your current system to something else.

By using weight sensors, the SmartBin Flex automatically tracks the stock inside the bin at any time, day or night. When the stock runs out, it can automatically place orders for more stock without any manual intervention, which makes your process leaner.

The SmartLabel is an intelligent label that attaches to every kind of storage container. It’s ideal if you’re already using a storage system that you’re comfortable with and want to attach an automated process to it.

The label shows such information as product name and ID number. Because it uses e-paper technology, the label is easy to read under all lighting conditions. When the container becomes empty or when they deem it necessary, users can press a button on the label to order more stock. The label then shows real-time order status, quantity, and delivery date.

Both smart systems offer similar benefits:

  • Integrates with Smart Factory Logistics.
  • Streamlines the ordering process.
