Cut your work in half while you improve accuracy and employee satisfaction
Most distributors use some form of cycle counting in their warehouses to stay current with accurate inventory levels without counting their entire stock. Unless you are operating a robust warehouse management solution, you may be limited to some inefficient and paper-based processes when you cycle count. Often this means printing physical tickets to paper, writing down your counts and then entering that information by hand into your ERP system.
Unfortunately, inefficiencies in your cycle counting process can lead to miscounts and fewer counts. Fewer counts lead to more inaccuracy as cycle counting depends on a sampling process to discover inventory errors. Adding a mobile cycle counting process to your ERP system may be the answer.
Tridex System’s Mobile Cycle Count product can be run on any Android powered device. Simple, quick and fast, Mobile Cycle Count communicates your counts in real-time as your warehouse personnel make them.
Our app lets you dynamically control what is displayed on the mobile device screen. Do you want to hide the “Quantity Expected” value? With Mobile Cycle Count, you can. Do you want to use both tablets and smaller cell phone size devices? You can change what is displayed so any device can be comfortably used in any environment.
Performing cycle counts on the sales floor or in a counter sales environment is particularly challenging with a paper-based method. Your employees are busy preparing the store for its opening hour and are too busy serving customers during operating hours. But in a sales environment, inventory is moving even more than in your warehouse. It includes sales made that day, items that customers might pick up and carry around without buying and products used by sales reps for demonstration purposes. Users of Tridex Systems’ cycle counting application are now able to count even their retail and counter sales locations for consistent accuracy, just like the big box retailers do.
