BULK SOLIDS: BinMaster, Stockpile Reports team up for better inventory tracking

Combining BinMaster’s proven measurement technologies with the visual capabilities of Stockpile Reports boosts inventory tracking.

LINCOLN, Neb. – Companies that store materials in bins and stockpiles can now manage inventory for both using a single system. BinMaster and Stockpile Reports have joined forces to optimize material management for companies that demand better control and reliability of inventory volume and value. The partnership combines the power of robust level sensors with innovative image processing software to optimize and simplify the customer experience across the mining, cement and agricultural industries.

The two companies share a vision of integrating inventory from piles and storage bins into a single dashboard accessed from a desktop, tablet or mobile device. The mission is to provide inventory insights and transparency to production, purchasing and finance across an entire organization and for individual production sites. Replacing outdated guesswork, inventory write-offs, and bad valuations is the intent of the solution.

Imagine getting precise and reliable stockpile volume measurements by simply uploading pictures – that is what Stockpile Reports has been doing since 2013. Driven by three patents that super power Stockpile Reports technology, it is the only pile management solution that can use photos from a cell phone, drone, plane, and fixed mounted camera to precisely measure volume. Dashboards populated with photographs, site statistics, and materials report vital information on the volume, tonnage and condition risks for each pile. This software as a service (SaaS) subscription not only allows users to track pile inventory on a monthly, weekly, or even daily basis—it is the only solution that works from both air and ground cameras.
