PR Log - Mar 15, 2012 - Ducotrax inventory management software tracks all inventory categories and assets within a company’s warehouse, including its finished, semi-finished and raw material inventory levels. The software’s ease-of-use is further accentuated by its ability to be integrated within a company’s existing enterprise mobility network. Users of mobile devices and rugged hand-held computers can gain access to timely data concerning existing inventory counts, as well as up-to-the-minute information on incoming and outgoing shipments.
"We see a large void in inventory and warehouse management capabilities for small and medium sized businesses. Every day, we run across potential customers relying upon manual processes, processes that have too many errors, are too costly to manage and too problematic to deliver consistent information to internal and external customers. It’s about helping our customers better understand, better manage and better control their inventory costs. Our software allows companies to order what they need, when they need, without concern of buying too much, or too little," says Charles Keatley, CEO of Portable Workforce.
The ability to reconcile inventory in real-time provides remote mobile device users with an insider’s view into current inventory counts. These devices encompass mobile and cellular technology and are a vital aspect of providing a company’s customer base with timely data. The software is customizable to fit every type of business model.
Due to the complexities of today’s global marketplace, small companies can ill afford to manage inventory via excel spreadsheets. A successful supply chain relies upon a strong and robust vendor base, a vendor base that is able to respond to the company’s immediate needs. Because companies purchase product from different vendor locations, properly accessing timely data is vital to understanding and managing existing, as well as future, requirements.
“It’s difficult for small businesses to manage in-house personnel, an outside sales staff, and still maintain a strong online presence. All three sources must constantly feed customers with product availability. It’s virtually impossible to have accurate and timely data with so many points of reference, especially when inventory is managed manually by excel sheets. Ducotrax eliminates the hassles of manually counting inventory and makes accessing accurate inventory information easy from anywhere, at any time,” reiterates Keatley.
Ducotrax keeps warehouse data accurate by eliminating the data update lag created by travel time in most shipping and receiving environments. Field information is instantly integrated into the business system, and office staff can access this information as needed. Most importantly, a company’s sales and field service personnel can immediately access the same information via their rugged hand held computers. Faster service means faster turn times, and a more satisfied customer base.
The Ducotrax software can reconcile inventory at a moment’s notice and provide vital inventory counts to both office, and out-of-office, personnel. All of this is done via the user’s enterprise mobility device and accomplished at a fraction of the cost of manual processes.
“Our software fits right at home with small mom-and-pop shops, as it does with larger enterprises, ones with revenue in excess of $30 million. With Ducotrax, we aim to provide an affordable, ready-made solution that increases inventory accuracy and warehouse management. In the end, our clients are able to reduce inventory costs and funnel the savings into other areas of their business," declares Keatley. - - -
