The Best Cloud-Based Inventory System in 2019
Cloud Computing is growing, especially as we are all used to having our mobile devices link us to data wherever we are.
Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple.
The increasing presence of Cloud Computing is driving the digitization of everything even in the Inventory Management fields. ASAP Systems, the leader in Inventory System and Asset Tracking solutions based in the United States, is always striving to provide an Inventory System that can be molded to every industry.
Local Systems limit the user to be physically present in the warehouse. This makes Inventory management difficult. However, a Cloud-Based Inventory System allows management to have access to the Inventory System regardless of their physical location. It allows making necessary changes or to simply monitor workflow in the warehouse. All the user needs is a mobile device, an internet connection, and the login authentication to access the Cloud-Based Inventory System.
Along with the visibility from anywhere, people are searching for features that can solve problems that they could encounter. The Best Cloud-Based Inventory System will offer a wide range of features to address any potential problem.
Top Features offered by Our Cloud-Based Inventory System:
Making the transition from manual data-entry to an Inventory System should be easy and effortless. The Data Import feature allows you to import your data from programs like Excel or CSV anywhere, anytime using Google Drive, Office 365, Box.com, and Dropbox into our Inventory System. A time-saving process that will eliminate the need to manually re-enter your data into the system.
Let’s take an example. A bank makes the decision to switch their Excel sheets into an Inventory system. All the bank has to do is follow these 4 easy steps.
The Data Analytics feature will allow visibility of your available stock on hand, stock items quantity, and an analysis of inventory items usage. The analytics tool will let you visualize your inventory data through graphs. The user can access the analytics feature from many places in the software.
Let’s take the example of a medical supplies warehouse. The warehouse manager wants to know the available quantity on hand before making purchasing decisions. Using the Analytic tool, he will be able to visualize the quantity on hand by batch or serial number.
The Alert feature saves the user from overstocking or understocking scenarios. This feature allows the user to receive automated SMS & Email Alerts to notify all selected personnel when inventory is below or above the pre-configured reorder quantity that has been chosen.
For example, a chemical warehouse needs to keep track of chemical levels at all times. Some chemicals are highly dangerous when overstocked. When a certain chemical hits the reorder quantity, a configured SMS or Email Alert will be triggered to inform the management about potential overstocking.
The Signature Capture feature allows you to improve reliability and auditing. This feature collects and saves signatures captured of the individual receiving and disposing of items on mobile. Also, like any other feature, it’s configurable. You can choose to enable it and choose which transaction requires a signature.
Let’s take an example. A warehouse manager only assigns a required signature for “Dispose of Transactions”. Another example may be assigning a signature when moving items from one location to another. The individual receiving those items has to sign to show they received them.
The ideal Cloud-Based Inventory System offers any industry the features that it needs to be successful and to streamline its workflow. If you need more information on the features that we offer, don’t hesitate to ask for a demo!
