CMI 2.0

MSC Industrial Supply introduces CMI (Customer Managed Inventory), a tool which will enable you to save time and money while effectively replenishing your inventory and stocking levels.

In just two easy steps, you can take complete control of your ordering process!


Scan your MSC Industrial Supply, competitor or UPC barcodes


Connect your scanner to your PC and your scanned items are automatically sent to your shopping basket on www.mscdirect.co.uk for review and ordering

It'sTHAT easy! Think of it as the same way you can now "self check out" at the supermarket or get cash at the machine – you are in control!
