Inventory Management is a feature in the Field Service software solution. What does it do and what does it mean?
Basically, Inventory Management allows parts and supplies to be tracked, associated with customer orders and reconciled – every step of the supply chain.
When parts and equipment are tracked properly, it:
- Saves time
- Reduces errors
- Puts in place controls
- Adds efficiency to operations.
With a manual approach to tracking parts and supplies, item numbers and descriptions can be recorded incorrectly when they are transferred to the field service associate. With technology, the bar codes on each item are scanned and errors are eliminated. What’s more, the administrative tasks of recording part numbers are eliminated.
This is a great example of using technology to reduce errors and manual processes to improve efficiency.
The Inventory Management module in the Numerasoft suite, automatically tracks and reconciles the parts received and used. This includes the part numbers and assigned names and descriptions. Reporting is also available to show what parts were used, pricing and other details.
Inventory Management – using technology – enhances operations, improves quality and elevates the experience for employees and customers.
