For businesses that utilize a warehouse facility to distribute their product, the task of accurately tracking their inventory can pose a real challenge. When processes aren’t automated, it’s not uncommon for mismatches to arise between the stock showing on the warehouse management system (WMS) and the stock physically available. What’s more, these inventory discrepancies tend to come to light at the very moment when the stock is needed most, prompting distribution delays and threatening customer satisfaction.
Relying on warehouse personnel to manually carry out inventory checks is not only time and labor intensive, but raises the potential for human error, too. When discrepancies inevitably arise, getting to the bottom of them can take hours of search time and even result in the temporary closure of a warehouse.
The challenge was to eliminate inventory inaccuracies within warehouses by automating the inventory tracking process.
