Simplify Inventory & Warehouse operations with tailored SAP Mobile Solution

The warehouse is a part of a bigger picture: the supply chain. In present turbulent economy, it is important for warehouse managers to deliver a high level of performance. Whether you manage a manufacturing warehouse, a distribution centre, or inventory – being well-connected and having complete visibility into all your assets, people, and processes at all time is crucial to having a productive, profitable, and compliant supply chain. For meeting rising demands and staying ahead of the competitors, there is always a pressure to move goods fast at lower cost, and it won’t be surprising to see accuracy being affected. Sometimes, shipments may ship on wrong place or in the wrong quantities or at the wrong time.

For making warehouse efficient and successful it is essential to perform the role of receiving, storing, and shipping goods to the right customer in the right quantities at the right time that only possible when warehouse personnel would have the right information on their fingertips. An efficient inventory management is even more crucial for sustainability as business transactions take place on a global scale and cover multiple locations.

Technology is improving human’s life day by day, but warehouses are struggling with operational inefficiencies. Today, what desktop computer offer is no longer enough. Inventory requires mobility, flexibility and the constant availability of products in the warehouse. There is need to eliminate paper-based approach completely and limit cycle count sheets, and pick tickets. The ability to gather and process information in a timely and accurate manner is much needed.  If your warehouse is still relying on paper-based approach and legacy system to obtain and process important warehouse management data, you are not operating efficiently.

Mobility in the warehouse can dramatically improve the productivity, resource utilization, and inventory management. It enables warehouse personnel to complete order fulfilment in real-time from their mobile handheld devices. The right mobile solution can provide your warehouse personnel ‘anytime & anywhere’ flexibility and eliminate the paper-based approach. Automated data collection from mobile device can help you save time and money. The visibility improves resource utilization through just-in-time inventory levels that allow you to stock products based on demand. If you want to get the most from your warehouse and money invested in legacy system, you need to make sure you have the right mobile solution in place that is designed to help you achieve that goal.
