March 3rd 2015 18:58:54 PM
Sage 100 mobile apps for Android provide the tools warehouse managers need
Whenever we introduce our newest Sage 100 warehouse management products to new or potential clients, we are always asked the same question: “How will these applications really impact my warehouse?” We appreciate this question and encourage it because warehouse managers should always be cautious about introducing new products into their warehouse environments. Failure to understand a product’s capabilities and impact is how many companies end up dissatisfied with the products in which they have invested.
As we discussed earlier this month, many of you are familiar with our Sage 100 mobile products on iOS; however, many more are unfamiliar with our Android platform. We’d like to clear up some of the confusion in this article and highlight the benefits warehouse managers can begin to experience by using our Sage 100 mobile products on their Android (and other mobile) devices.
The Impact of Mobile Apps on Warehouse Management
The role of a warehouse manager is very extensive. Traditionally, warehouse managers were responsible for making their rounds on the warehouse floor, ensuring that every area ran smoothly and efficiently. As today’s warehouses continue to grow, however, warehouse managers are more limited in their availability to monitor the happenings in the warehouse.
That’s where mobile technology enters the picture.
Tablets and smartphones have become effective tools for helping warehouse managers further their reach and expand their influence in the warehouse. Rather than having to walk around the warehouse to spot issues and resolve problems, warehouse managers can access all the information they need on their mobile devices. With apps such as our Sage 100 mobile warehouse management apps for Android, warehouse managers can delve into the inner-workings of the warehouse, identify bottlenecks in the supply chain, manage labor schedules, and monitor inventory levels from the palm of their hands.
