Top 5 Benefits of Inventory Control for Energy Companies
Oil and Gas Companies have always needed to track equipment and assets. Recently, the industry is experiencing pricing changes and rising costs, and many companies have used our Inventory System and Asset Tracking solutions with barcodes to manage and protect their inventory and assets.
Many companies have lost money on equipment, the stock they can’t sell, or broken inventory. Instead of tracking everything manually, it is better to have an automated Inventory and Asset tracking system.
Oil & Gas Companies have unique challenges when tracking inventory. Many assets and inventory can be at different locations (rigs, well sites, yards), and because those locations aren’t permanent, it can be a problem tracking everything.
Using ASAP Systems’ Inventory and Asset tracking solution, you can track equipment, inventory, materials, tools, and supplies at all locations, and easily move inventory between them.
