In today’s digital era, technological advancements such as the internet of things (IoT), mobility and AI are opening new doors of opportunity. At the same time many companies, especially those involved in warehouse and inventory management, are still dependent upon aging legacy systems. Many companies control and maintain their remote warehouses from where their supply chain operations take place.
Data Errors Hurt Effective Remote Warehouse Management
Most of the challenges associated with warehouse and inventory management arise from relying on manual processes, outdated systems, inconsistent data-entry, wasted hours spent tracking down the items stored on wrong location and more. It creates hurdles providing real-time inventory information. Having too much unnecessary inventory in stock note only consumes storage space, but also eats into the company’s bottom line. Even unexpectedly running out of stock of essential inventory items causes delays. Front-line warehouse workers still engage in bulky paper-based processes and they have to transfer data from warehouse to the office and back. Errors caused by manual data-entry leads to delays in supply chain and sacrifices customer expectation.

For example, people use mobile devices for playing games, paying their bills, replying email on the go and more. Now, the time has come for warehouse leaders to leverage the benefits of mobility. In order to streamline inventory management and add accuracy to the process company-wide, warehouse workers need a mobile solution that can overhaul these issues and boost the efficiency in the warehouse operations. The greatest combination of super-flexibility and easy user interface offered by an enterprise remote warehouse mobile app is invaluable.
