1. Device Revolution: Ruggedized handheld scanners, smartphones, tablets with integrated cameras and scanners translate to tracking inventory anytime, anywhere. These device options give organizations the ability to track inventory distributed across the globe in remote locations at much more affordable costs. It is now becoming feasible to have devices outside of corporate networks connecting using low cost barcode scanning devices that communicates with the same backend system that internal warehouse operators have relied on for years. These devices also enable consigned or customer owned inventory to be tracked and managed.
If you can track and manage it, you can invoice it. This translates to better use of your cash and other resources! Do you need an Apple iOS or Windows tablet application on Windows 8 to integrate to your Microsoft based platform? … no problem! Recently Appolis WithoutWire™ WoW Warehouse developed a Remote Inventory application using Apple iTouch w/ LineaPro™ scanners to enable Remote site Receiving, Replenishment, and Consumption (think Picking) of lot tracked inventory all with real-time invoicing capabilities. Brand new technology leveraged to empower and differentiate Appolis Clients!
2.Improved Lot/Expiration/Sell-By-Date Algorithms: Real-time FIFO, FEFO, sell-by-date lot tracking enables instant recall capabilities while minimizing perishable inventory. Using Sell-by-date lot tracking allows you to factor in variables such as transportation time to optimize the use of your perishable inventory and associated distribution costs. Tracing a raw material through your supply chain is now as simple as accessing reports … by item, by lot, by finished goods produced. This transforms the old “shotgun” recall to now enable a “rifle shot” approach to an efficient recall of only the suspect items or lots.
