Having a real time view of your inventory levels allows you to make sure that you are pro-active in the planning of your projects, maintenance activities and “what-if” events. Additionally, it allows stock controllers to be notified of leakage, low inventory levels, control costs as well as be able to quickly and easily notify finance of stock levels.
In the event that stock levels drop below a certain point, automatic notifications can be set up to notify relevant stakeholders as well as trigger purchase orders to suppliers. Additionally, in the event of theft, processes can be triggered to notify management and the security team to take action.
Effectively sync with bar coding systems to create automated workflows in the event of low stock levels or to control leakage.
With a fully integrated inventory system, staff now have the power to monitor stock usage and thus have aided foresight when planning.
Pro-active stock control is now possible through the use of smart sensors and monitors. An example is through the use of RFID sensors that pick-up every single piece of stock as it enters and exits the stock room. Real time inventory management is now possible without having to waste time on stock counting.
