Obadare Group is a specialised engineering business servicing the oil and gas, mining, transport, and asphalt industries. Matt Warner, Managing Director of Obadare Group, took the leap in 2014 and signed up with Stock Locker installing three automated vending machines. Matt’s main objective for installing the Stock Locker vending machines was to ensure his 40+ staff had 24/7 access to PPE and to streamline Obadare’s inventory management processes.
Stock Locker vending machines have the capability to be integrated with internal security systems. For Matt and his staff, this means they can use their HIB Fob to operate the machines. The advantage of using the HIB fob has allowed the company to track and record consumables against employee names. If it’s a higher value, or specialised gear is required, employees enter a job number so the cost of the item is charged directly to specific jobs. Since installing the machines, Matt estimates a 35-40% time saving in inventory management, and has now refined the Stock Locker process to allow staff to access consumables in a faster and more job specific manner.

“The gear is in the lockers, it’s at a fixed price but the real value is always having it on site and not running out.” - Managing Director of Obadare Group
