An inventory control system lets enterprises better manage their inventory by providing end-to-end visibility. This helps to streamline supply chain operations across multiple locations and minimizes the need for manual intervention to receive, issue and deliver goods.
Inventory control systems are critical for businesses to efficiently manage their inventory. Such systems not only provide visibility into stock levels, inventory turnover, and item locations, but they also help businesses to meet customer demand while avoiding excess stock or stockouts. Proper inventory control systems minimize tied-up capital, reduce carrying costs, prevent losses from spoilage or obsolescence, and improve cash flow. Furthermore, automated inventory control systems provide real-time data to support supply chain planning and identify trends or issues early. Overall, implementing strong inventory management procedures and utilizing inventory control systems ensure significant strategic and financial benefits.
Advanced AI-based unified inventory control systems such as GEP NEXXE™ employ an API-driven approach to seamlessly integrate with third-party systems for real-time updates. The system unifies master data and transactional data to optimize inventory management, allowing users to perform tasks on the go with a user-friendly mobile application.
