HOUSTON, TX – Innovapptive Inc. has been at the forefront in creating cutting-edge digital transformation applications for users of “pop-up” warehouses – temporary, low-complexity distribution centers. Now the company and its “mobile-first” approach have gained mention in a major paper from a top market research firm.
Gartner has published “The Rise of the Pop-Up Warehouse, and What Software to Use to Manage a Low-Complexity Operation.” The paper examines the rise of these centers and advises readers on selecting a mobile-first, digital-transformation platform to efficiently manage supply chain operations. Gartner mentions Innovapptive as one of four outfits supplying such technology.
“These warehouses are rapidly transforming the supply and distribution arena, enabling companies and organizations to get closer to their customers in a low-cost, low-complexity manner,” said Sundeep Ravande, Innovapptive’s co-founder and CEO. “Our mobile-first, digital-transformation platform can help them set up a fully functional warehouse where none existed only days before, accurately manage inventory and get goods out the door with astonishing speed.”
UNICEF (United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund) recently deployed Innovapptive’s Mobile Inventory & Warehouse Management Platform (mInventory) to set up pop-up warehouses. UNICEF handles humanitarian aid distribution during earthquakes, hurricanes or refugee crises. These crises often occur in remote locations with little to no infrastructure.
mInventory enabled UNICEF to cut time-consuming paper documentation of receiving and shipping information. It also allowed fast-track delivery of emergency supplies. Using digital handheld devices capable of working offline, UNICEF set up a pop-up warehouse during the recent Bangladeshi refugee crisis. The warehouse quickly processed supplies and sent them to their destination with little wasted time, labor or expenditure.
“The much-needed supplies never sat idle,” Ravande explained. “Instead, UNICEF used mInventory to create an efficient, automated supply chain in an incredibly short time that got the aid where it needed to go. They could monitor every step of the logistics process and be connected to personnel at all levels, sharing vital information in real time and optimizing their decision-making and responses.”
mInventory users can experience an 85 percent reduction in shipping/receiving time and a 37.5 percent increase in planning efficiency.
