Comparing and Contrasting SmartBin Cloud and SmartLabel Cloud

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 Cloud and SmartLabel Cloud options. Both can increase your efficiency and enhance your profitability.


The SmartBin Cloud 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 motion-triggered weight sensors, the SmartBin Cloud automatically tracks the stock inside the bin at every use (pick or refill). When the stock runs out, it can automatically place orders for more stock without any manual intervention. This can help you achieve a lean management approach.

The SmartLabel Cloud 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 information, real-time order status, and delivery date. 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. In the future, the label will have the ability to be integrated with technology such as pick-to-light systems, enabled by a built-in LED.
