Zonal Tracking with Floor Mapping
Gone are the days of locating that misplaced shipment in a crowded warehouse. Now you can track your inventory down to the exact location in your facility. Apptricity Inventory Management’s Zonal tracking technology allows you to upload a layout image of every floor in your building, then assign inventory to precise locations represented on the image. This level of granular detail reduces time spent finding inventory within a location, as well as giving you the visibility to know which office, room, or storage closet your inventory is placed.
Automating cycle counting is helping clients save up to 70% of the time they spend on a manual count. Apptricity Inventory Management makes this easy by pairing your inventory with IoT tracking tags, now cycle counting can be run automatically, saving you time and eliminating errors.
Stock levels low? Apptricity Inventory Management auto-generates purchase requests or purchase orders to streamline the replenishment process. Set up inventory thresholds that once met, will create a new purchase request for approval, or with the appropriate permissions, execute a purchase order. This purchasing system can tie into any 3rd party point-of-sale system you currently have in place, allowing you to improve your current process, not replace it.
In any inventory management solution, velocity of items coming in and going out of your facilities is vital information for restocking. High velocity supply chains require robust planning and continuous visibility to achieve optimization that is aligned to business objectives. Apptricity Inventory Management accomplishes this in two ways:
- M2M computing – M2M, or “Machine to machine” computing means that Apptricity Inventory Management can gather various metrics off a machine such as a drink dispenser to gather inventory consumption. This allows for smarter restocking of popular products by spending your money on consumer choice.
- IoT Tracking Technologies – Tracking tags associated with pallets, license plates, and more allow Apptricity Inventory Management to track the specific items within a warehouse or facility. When these items leave the warehouse, inventory is reconciled in real-time.
Managing shelf-life is an essential inventory function helping minimize shrinkage. Apptricity Inventory Management tracks expiration date at the individual to the pallet level, informing your picking strategy and ensuring that product with nearer expiration dates are leaving the warehouse first. When items are approaching their expiration date, alerts can be triggered within the system to notify any user.
Apptricity brings visibility to supply chains. Inventory reports: stock quantity, location, shelf-life and expiration detail.
