Inventory Management Solutions

What is an Inventory Management Solution?

In general, inventory management refers to the method by which businesses handle tangible resources and materials in order to make sure resources are readily available for use. The objective of inventory management is to provide uninterrupted production, sales, and/or customer-service levels at the minimum cost. Since for many companies inventory is the largest item in the current assets category, inventory problems can and do contribute to losses or even business failures.

What Tools Do I Need for an Inventory Control Application?

Mobile Computer - A key component in an Inventory Management Solution is a mobile computer. The mobile computer, whether it's some type of smartphone , rugged barcode reader, a tablet or a small laptop, allows the employee in the field to scan asset barcodes, record any number of data items including location, condition, age etc.

Barcode Scanner - In situations where the inventory item can be brought to a laptop or host system, a non intelligent barcode scanner can be used to read or decode the data in a barcode. Barcode scanners can be either wired (tethered) or wireless.

Application Software - Inventory application software can provide business with a host of automated systems to improve accuracy, speed processes and eliminate mistakes.

Barcode Printer - A barcode printer provides employees the ability to produce barcode labels on demand or in batches. Most bar code printers today use thermal transfer technology so inventory labels are durable and permanent.

Reporting Tools - Ultimately all of this information will be sent to a central system. This central reporting system will let management see the details of all of the jobs, inventory and schedules for their operations. Information is power and the right system can certainly put the information within easy reach.

Barcode Labels/Tags - Some inventory tracking applications can be achieved with out-sourced or preprinted barcode labels. Bar Codes Unlimited, Inc. can print virtually any sequence or requirement.
