What People Are Saying:

“CRIBWISE storage is located so that all the operators have an easy access to it. And so that everything can be found in one place. In my daily work I both pick up tools for my daily tasks but also fill up the storage with new tool bits, whet stone bits, drill bits and other tools. I just put the bits in places the system shows to me and sign the task done. It’s that simple.”
