New Product Range


We are pleased to announce that Insteco are now providers of Apex Supply Chain Technology automated locker systems in  Ireland. 

Apex and Insteco are defining the future of how organisations manage their supply chains by providing tailored, scalable hardware and software solutions that allow our customers to streamline the flow of products, materials, supplies, equipment and critical parts, and to provide secure, automated delivery whenever and wherever they are desired.


The customer requires a solution to control Handheld Devices, in order to reduce loss and damage, through a controlled and auditable storage system.  The solution should also make the management of devices easier saving the time of supervisors.


Apex Axcess Smart Lockers will be used to store devices securely.  The Apex Trajectory Cloud will control access, allowing automated issuing and receiving of Handheld Devices for each individual user using their existing ID cards or PIN access to authenticate, whilst also tracking and reporting device damage and loss.  This will hold each individual accountable for the equipment they use and will also help reduce any problems with the issuing and returning of devices, reducing employee downtime and improving productivity.




Real Time Data Capture

•   See who uses what, where, when and for how long
