Warfab’s ability to implement a complete inventory system and asset tracking solution has greatly enhanced their business operations. The flexibility of the powerfyl system allows for their varied usage scenarios providing reduced shrinkage, increased capability to reconcile consigned items, and allowed them to move away from paper based shipping documents used to keep track of things.
Warfab needed to be able to track assets as well as consumable inventory. Adding to the asset tracking challenge is that they have items on consignment as well as purchased items. Also there are multiple types of locations to deal with such as moving locations, stationary locations and job locations. Equipment is shipped across the country, some of it is serialized while some isn’t, some is billable to a job while some isn’t. The inability to reconcile was a large burden.
Warfab participated in inventory system and asset tracking demos from several companies. ASAP Systems’ Inventory System and Asset Tracking solution was the most user friendly and allowed them to track everything including consumable inventory and equipment in one system. Mobile barcode scanners being part of the system provided a complete integrated solution.
Improved processes and efficiency by implementing an inventory system reduced shrinkage. Effective tracking of the billable equipment minimized lost revenue. And the ability to reconcile consigned inventory reduced losses also.
