Every distribution centre needs a proper inventory management process that lowers stock overheads and reduces risks associated with inaccurate tracking, orders, and shipments.
We look at two ways to improve inventory management and streamlined distribution by addressing common scenarios encountered on the warehouse floor.
Eliminate Inventory Inaccuracies
Any business should reduce or eliminate data inaccuracies as much as possible to ensure a smooth and timely processing of information and minimise wastage.
Regarding inventory management, your ERP system should address the following possible scenarios:
- Errors in inventory counts and duplications
- Increased inventory counts due to inaccurate item tracking
- Shipments of wrong products to customers
- Sales of products not yet uploaded in the inventory system
Use an integrated ERP system with a powerful inventory management module to minimise overheads and reduce or eliminate inventory inaccuracies.
It works the way you want! Microsoft Dynamics NAV looks and works like Microsoft Office which means that you can get to work immediately with no change-over delays. It is also role-tailored to give employees relevant insights for their day-to-day work with accurate and instantaneous information. Data that is so readily available can solve not only today’s problems but also plan for tomorrow. With its cloud and on-premise deployment, you also have the flexibility to choose to work when and where you want – at the office, at home, or on the road.
Reduce Processing Time
Companies either perform manual data entry or scanning of barcodes to capture stock inventory and warehousing transactions.
An ERP system should foremost automate inventory entries and integrate better stock control management to counteract these possible situations:
- Warehouse delays in stock search time
- Delays in order deliveries due to inventory mismanagement
- Reduced employee productivity due to inventory faults
- Increased transaction errors due to manual entry data
- Inventory overstock or understock
Automating your inventory management system and improving transaction time from the get-go is conducive to increased warehousingstaff productivity, faster delivery times, and better overall sales confidence.
