    Drone & AI Technology

    At TVS SCS, we are proactively looking for ways to innovate and save time and money whilst improving the efficiency of operations. We are currently developing Drone Technology. This technology will be used to help count warehouse inventory which otherwise would take a substantial amount of time to carry out manually on a scissor lift. This technology gives our clients a full, real-time look of the stock held in their warehouse locations. We then use AI to match the location count to the counts on our systems to check for anomalies.

    Sub-Assembly: We sub-assemble certain products or parts that are being used for a more significant project. This helps improve engineer efficiency as parts come sub-assembled.

    Just-in-time: We understand things are needed on sites at the time of implementation. That is why we provide a just-in-time delivery service to ensure your part arrives when you need it.
