ASAP Systems’ Passport Saves California State Parks Time and Money Through Inventory Management Automation and Barcode-Based Inventory Tracking
San Jose, California (PRWEB) September 03, 2014
Since 1864, California State Parks has helped preserve the state’s biological diversity and protect its most valued natural and cultural resources. Among the organization’s 280 park units, San Clemente State Beach purchases and issues stock inventory items to state beaches in Southern California. In order to improve the efficiency of their inventory management, the park needed a barcode-based inventory system that could automate inventory tasks in the stock room.
The State Park had been unsuccessfully tracking their stock inventory manually. It consisted of over 2000 items, including electrical parts, office and cleaning supplies, documents, and various materials. “Counting what we had and writing down orders by hand was a nightmare; the process was totally unorganized,” said Laura Griggs from San Clemente State Beach’s purchasing department. The team wanted to avoid guessing which items filled their shelves, the quantity of items, and who the vendors were. Also, they needed a …

Environmental Solutions Industry by Providing MBC with its Scalable Online Inventory and Asset Tracking System, BarCloud
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) July 30, 2014
MBC, located in South Island, New Zealand, is a company that has specialized in environmental solutions involving project management, animal control, vegetation services, and erosion control since 2007. The company’s recent client growth and expansion into new areas of business prompted them to purchase a substantial amount of new equipment (assets) such as computers, laptops, generators, satellite phones, GPS devices, radios, and more. In order to manage the increase in assets, MBC wanted a cloud-based asset and inventory system that could monitor the location and status of assets anytime, anywhere.
Using Excel to track hundreds of moving assets (in-office and off-site) was ineffective for MBC because it failed to provide real-time inventory operations data. The unsophisticated system was not capable of tracking equipment that frequently changed users and locations. Adding to the challenge, employees worked simultaneously in a number of unique job sites, from inner city Auckland to remote …
