cStar's e-Dispense™ system is a remote-monitored vending apparatus for life science products, including reagents, enzymes and controlled narcotics, which need to be stored in chilled or frozen environments. A wirelessly-enabled dispensing system, e-Dispense™ uses wide area networks and Spread Spectrum local area networks to provide controlled, 24-hour access to products in a secure, paperless environment.

e-Dispense™ is a true on-line, real-time, end-to-end turnkey solution that offers:
  • ISO magnetic stripe card compatibility
  • encoding equipment
  • vending equipment
  • glass front advertising
  • wireless local or wide area networking
  • comprehensive e-commerce management
  • product and machine support and
  • back-end software necessary for automated billing.
e-Dispense™ also provides advanced tactile support, ensuring compatibility with varying product-packaging formats; it's an ideal turnkey solution for boosting marketing incentive programs and eliminating product shortages.

e-Dispense™ provides authorized users with around-the-clock access to climate-sensitive and restricted medical and life science products, while automatically managing and tracking inventory, compiling accurate sales data and logging all machine activity. Only users with authorized swipe cards can access the dispensing apparatus and administrators can remotely view a comprehensive log of user statistics and product sales for a given machine, in real-time, via encrypted web pages. 

Automated inventory and supply chain management eliminates the chance that a dispensing apparatus will sell-out of a crucial product when it's needed most. And e-Dispense™'s automated security function monitors machine temperatures and alerts administrators to temperature fluctuations and system errors in real-time - so e-Dispense™ users get the products they need, when they need them, in a secure, automated environment.
