Mobile Inventory Software is the perfect solution for technical service companies who are battling to manage the movement of stock in the field. We’re talking about an organized software that keeps you on top of your inventory, whether you have a stock room or a warehouse or keep stock or equipment in your vans. A digital system that also allows your technicians in the field to view the inventory from their mobile devices, skipping the paperwork.
Large businesses with massive stock holdings run inventory systems to monitor all of their stock that enters and leaves the main warehouse. With that, comes the problem of keeping track of the hands removing or transferring the said stock. Smaller to medium businesses also experience the same problem, with smaller amounts of stock stored in a storeroom not being managed correctly. In smaller businesses, the odd item is misplaced here and there, but one item a month could amount to thousands come year-end.
Technicians' vans often operate 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.
If 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. Mobile 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. Your field technicians 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.
Knowing what stock is currently available on hand helps field staff 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, mobile field staff 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 field technicians can carry on without hassle.
The inventory software will allow your field technicians 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 field staff to create a picking list for themselves, while keeping a full history of all transactions made. The field staff can enter information at the source, which removes a lot of the administration time and paperwork that usually follows general stock management.
