Inventory Control Systems: It’s Not Just for Warehouses Anymore

August 16th 2018 15:00:00 PM



You probably have an inventory control system in place for your warehouse, but have you considered using it in other parts of your business?

Inventory controls systems aren’t just for warehouses anymore. They can be used for tracking equipment and assets, as well as for tracking scrap in and out of the shop floor. This reduces waste and improves efficiency.

But, it’s not just about reducing waste and improving efficiency, laudable as those goals may be. By using your inventory control system on the shop floor, you can gain real-time insights into production speed. You can then use these insights for anticipating and addressing problems before they start. Now that’s efficiency!

If you’re shopping for a new inventory control system, consider:

  1. Scalability: What do you need your inventory control system to do now? How about in the future? Understanding goals and scalability of a new inventory system can help you choose the best one for your current and future needs.
  2. Integration: How well does the system under consideration integrate with existing technology? Custom programming can be expensive and fraught with problems. A system that integrates out of the box with your current system results in less downtime and expense.
  3. Ease of use: Lastly, how easy is the new system to use? Check references and ask questions of current users about how long it took to train employees in the new system. Then, gauge the ease of use by their answers and your knowledge of your team.
