Does it take longer than a minute for newly received items to be viewable in your inventory system?
Your costs go up when your team cannot view accurate, on-hand counts at all times.
Yet it’s common for companies to take a whole day to update their system, by the time a written bill of lading gets taken to the accounting department, gets keyed into the system in daily batches, and marked as received.
With instant updates for received items, you stop paying for recurring time wasters:
➤ Sales and customer service people spend time interrupting warehouse staff to ask if an item has arrived, because they know it quite possibly could have arrived and just not be in the system yet.
➤ Sales people spend time double-checking the real quantity on hand in the warehouse so they can give accurate information about availability to customers.
➤ Accounting clerks spend time daily, manually keying in data to update the system from paper-based bills of lading.
➤ The physical inventory team spends extra time reconciling inaccurate quantities due to accumulated manual errors from hand-written receiving records, misplaced bills of lading, and data entry errors.
