A Simplified inventory method
The Q-bud is an Electronic inventory tag to identify content and remaining inventory count for loose and/or large items. It is an add-on for the entire Cubex inventory management ecosystem (auto dispensing cabinets and software). The Q-bud has an LED which illuminates to help users locate items in the storage room. The buttons and the display allow users to indicate how many of an item were taken or returned, and enter a new count when doing inventory or restocking. The device has low-power wireless two-way communication with a cloud-based inventory management system. The device has a mount for attaching to common storage bins, or for attachment to various surfaces.
