Technicians' vans are like mobile warehouses. Stock is added and removed all the time, as the jobs are done. Business owners often fail to see the downfalls of not tracking stock right up until it is placed at the customer's location, and this is where companies are overspending to compensate for “missing” items.
The Benefits of Mobile Inventory Software:
Minimise OverspendingIf you do not regularly keep a record of your inventory, you can end up ordering stock that you might already have, or forget to replenish particular items. Inventory Software will guarantee a cut back in overspending and overstocking, or forgetting to order stock. Technicians will be able to know exactly what stock quantities are available and where the unused stock could be sitting. They will also be able to see if the stock is in another worker's van or in the main warehouse. Workers can capture each transaction from their mobile device, which makes the job flow a lot more efficiently. Inventory software allows you to stay on top of your stock and avoid losses in the long run.
Saves TimeKnowing what stock is currently available on hand helps workers because they will know exactly when to put new orders in with suppliers, which saves the time of having to chase after stock last minute. With inventory software, workers will no longer be delayed because they are waiting for stock and materials. When you have a digital system, the stock is ordered, delivered and collection captured, so that your workers can carry on without hassle.
Work on the GoThe inventory system will allow your field workers to record a collection right from their mobile devices. If they need to return stock to the warehouse, or if another worker is running low, the mobile inventory system will allow your workers to create a picking list for themselves, while keeping a full history of all transactions made. Field workers can enter information at the source, which removes a lot of the administration time and paperwork that usually follows general stock management.
