Inventory management is crucial to the success of any product-based business. Managing a warehouse or multiple warehouses can be challenging at the best of times and it takes a lot of time and effort to analyze and process your inventory data manually. If you are currently facing inventory challenges, we have a great solution. We have developed an Android based warehouse inventory scanning application with integrated wireless barcode scanning functionality. The software runs on Motorola based hardware (and compatible devices) and has the ability to automate shipping, receiving, picking and packing.
Here are some reasons why integrating inventory scanning software is beneficial to your company.
- Eliminate the need for hardcopy
Barcode scanning functionality does not require hardcopy. You do not have to print information about the product since all the relevant data is displayed on your device whilst scanning. It saves time and delivers accuracy without a ton of paper.
- Improved inventory tracking
Inventory scanning during receiving, picking and packing your products gives your whole organisation a real-time view to the of all goods. With this data you can optimize inventory placement and use the resulting information for future production planning.
- Reduced picking errors
Manual methods of data collection are slow and prone to error. Inventory scanning software improves accuracy of your data and eliminates many errors. As a result – your team works faster and more productively.
- Saves time locating product by providing the mapped inventory locations such as bin and shelf
With the integration of barcode scanning functionality, you save time locating product. Simply scan the barcode of a product or location and the data becomes available to the ERP.
Also note that Wi-Fi coverage is not required over the full warehouse area, since we can cache the data within the hand held device. Information from your device is sent back to the central database when Wi-Fi permits allowing you to review and analyze your data.
Below are four standard functions that you can use with your device:
- Receive Incoming delivery
- Ship goods
- Fully track bin and shelf locations in multiple warehouse environments
- Make Internal Stock Transfers
Note that we can also customise workflow for your particular requirements as part of the implementation of the software.
