Optimizing warehouse storage space begins with knowing the exact dimensions of each box, container, parcel, and pack type entering the facility. Inaccurate or incomplete dimensioning results in poor staging, load planning, slotting, and re-racking all of which contribute to inefficient space usage. With xDIM™, a one-of-a-kind mobile volume dimensioning system, workers capture accurate and reliable measurements with point and click functionality of a tablet. Enhancing stackability and enabling more efficient slotting ensures precious storage space is used as effectively as possible.


Many warehouses previously opted for stationary or large cart 3D metrology equipment. However, these devices are bulky and cumbersome and require the movement of a box or parcel to the measuring station - a timely endeavor. Often, these expensive systems sit in a corner unused, collecting dust and taking up floor space—an obvious ROI miss. Modernizing processes with the mobility of xDIM enables workers to measure a box from anywhere—saving time and ultimately, money.


The cloud-based xDIM software seamlessly integrates with existing product information management systems (PIMS), warehouse management systems (WMS), enterprise resource planning software (ERP), and other resource management platforms to efficiently store and manage data. Plus, xDIM is Certified by NTEP to applicable requirements of NIST Handbook 44, meaning it can be legally used for establishing the cost for services or hire on the basis of a measurement.
