Inventory Management

Cloud-based inventory management systems help you manage your inventory in real-time with high-resolution genealogy and traceability.

  • Keep an automatic, high-resolution “paper trail” of all your transactions and activities.
  • Track your tooling, gages and supply items, with check-in/check-out and scanning to record which tools produced which product and when.
  • Streamline your shipping and receiving with barcode scanning and automatically capture incremental information at each point of production.
  • Split and merge your inventory while maintaining accurate product genealogy and traceability — coil slitting, mixed supplier lots, heat and chemistry control, and more.
  • Enable future analysis with upstream and downstream genealogy, including very specific information about your inventory (e.g., lot and heat data).
  • Enjoy mistake-proof, real-time precision through fully integrated barcode printing and scanning.
  • Generate labels using pre-formatted templates that are automatically applied based on part or destination.
  • Know the truth about what you have in-house at any time — from receipt to work-in-process to shipment.
