Want to manage inventory more effectively? Improve inventory management? Use vendor managed inventory? Better monitor the supply chain?

BinView® is a Cloud application and SaaS inventory system for on-site or remote inventory monitoring of solids or liquids in tanks, bins, or silos. It is compatible with most BinMaster continuous level sensors as well as other sensor brands with a 4 -20 mA analog output or Modbus RTU.

Featuring automated alerts and a real-time inventory data display, BinView® makes it easy to manage multiple vessels at multiple locations on an inventory management dashboard.  BinView® provides an intuitive user interface optimized for both desktop and mobile devices.

BinView keeps your data safe and secure. Administrator controls let you specify user privileges, allowing multiple users, suppliers, or vendors to access information—while securing against unauthorized changes to the system.
