update information concept

Inventory management requires effective communication between multiple parties. To ensure accurate, up-to-date inventory information is maintained, team members must ensure accurate, up-to-date information is kept so that any unforeseen losses can be identified and minimized.

A low-cost subscription-based service enables businesses to easily scale the benefits of software solutions according to their needs while staying within budget. A business can benefit tremendously from this capability, enabling it to become more efficient, intelligent, and successful.

Cyber security and information or network protection

End-to-End encryption ensures maximum data security at all points of data transmission and storage from unauthorized individuals and organizations. Because encryption is a security function to protect the privacy of data, it is used in many different types of applications.

Digital Inventory Management Improves Business Productivity

An industrial adhesive manufacturer with regionally based production facilities experienced high costs related to manual inventory management, customers running out of product, and unnecessary fees.

Their customer base has very small tanks and only 2 to 3 tanks per site. The smaller sites resulted in mostly empty multi-compartment trucks and spending a lot of time, effort, and money in delivering to one tank at a time.

After implementing the Digital Inventory Management solution, the productivity of their sales and technicians improved by 20-40% because inventory information was readily accessible. 

Their sales staff are now focused on selling and providing technical assistance to their customers – not managing inventories.
