Like a Shadow: Web-based Inventory System – Always With You
Posted by Kevin Reynolds on August 2, 2013
A web-based inventory system holds a wide array of benefits, but perhaps the most significant is its ever-present nature. Accessible from a variety of locations, online inventory systems allow a level of flexibility that traditional setups cannot even hope to mimic. For Rapid Inventory users, this means the availability of tracking warehouse transactions via QuickBooks without any of the limitations related to offline software.
The availability of a web-based inventory system has the potential to vastly improve the efficiency and accuracy of everyday warehouse processes. This is particularly the case for managers and employees smart enough to take advantage of the unique possibilities such an inventory system has to offer.
Tracking from Remote Locations
The logistics of warehouse work make physical presence a requirement for most everyday tasks. However, there may be occasions in which a manager needs to check records from a location other than the warehouse. When such a time arrives, web-based inventory systems place managers and other employees in the perfect position to remain up to date on warehouse happenings from an airport, waiting room or even the beach.
Web-based inventory systems are designed to cut out the lag time that typically accompanies traditional software solutions. The result is improved warehouse efficiency, as well as fewer errors. This remains true even when data is accessed and tracked from offsite locations, allowing for faster project completion with less effort. Those looking to integrate a web-based inventory system with QuickBooks can further enhance the process by assigning specific expiration dates so that, even when away from the warehouse, the manager retains tight control over delivery times.
With the assistance of a web-based inventory system, you have the potential to transform the functioning of your warehouse from acceptable to exceptional. Integrate the web-based setup with QuickBooks to ensure a painless transition — the result will be greater efficiency, fewer errors and easy tracking from remote locations!
