Halloween can be a scary time, especially for Supply Chain professionals. Imagine the amount of candy, costumes and decorations that have to be tracked and transported from warehouses to customers each year. According to a 2015 survey from the National Retail Federation, more than 157 million Americans will be celebrating Halloween this year, equating to approximately $6.9 billions dollars spent on candy, costumes and decor. That is a daunting task for suppliers, and an impossible task for those still using a manual Supply Chain management system.
With an automated Supply Chain Management solution, suppliers can easily:
- Manage the inventory of bulk items, such as crates of candy, by using an Asset management solution that can be supported by advanced technology like RFID.
- Benefit from at-a-glance visibility while tracking your Inventory – products, parts on hand, supplies and materials, such as Halloween costumes.
- Streamline your picking and shipping process from the Warehouse, ensuring that those Halloween decorations make it to stores and customers in time for October 31st.
- Schedule and assign Work Orders from your mobile device to ensure you have an organized system in place by the time Black Friday rolls around.
