Virginia Utility Increases Inventory Accuracy and Warehouse Operational Efficiencies
Challenge

Loudoun Water operates and maintains a variety of water systems serving a growing population over a large geographical area with multiple storage locations. With approximately 27,000 transactions per year, they sought to reduce inefficiencies from their paper-based inventory management methodology.

Action

Loudoun Water’s internal team recommended a barcoding solution that would leverage their current SAP Materials Management module. By partnering with Innovapptive and quickly implementing mInventory, Loudon Water was able to ensure real-time transaction processing with enhanced data accuracy, improved mobility, and convenience.

Results
Automation of previously manual processes eliminated the need for mountains of paperwork entirely and improved employee morale and productivity. Wireless printing enabled personnel to print product labels at different locations with greater accuracy and increased efficiency.
