Inventory Control and Warehouse Management

Inventory Control Systems are about eliminating waste and gaining the most value out of your operation.  Just-In-Time Inventory Control Systems provide the platform for Lean Manufacturing, enabling you to have the exact amount of materials and inventory you need, when you need it- no more and no less.

Excess inventory remaining in your warehouse collects dust and incurs cost instead of generating revenue.  In addition to lost profit from administration, financing and storage costs, inventory in your warehouse has to be insured and is exposed to risk such as fires, floods, obsolescence, and market depreciation.  And raw material inventory remaining in the warehouse for a sluggish product can be a significant drag in markets that demand fast product changes.

Competitive markets reward fluid operations that are responsive to costs.  A fluid and responsive operation enables you to move product quickly, based on demand with purchase orders in step with inventory movement.  This results in faster movement of accurate quantities of inventory that are responsive to your markets generating a faster time to revenue.

Inventory Control Systems are typically delivered through a combination of software and services, supported by experts with wide experience in the business of manufacturing and distribution.

·         Scan inventory upon receipt at the warehouse
