Oil Industry Leader Edges Out Their Inventory Control
Large industry leaders pioneer the way for innovative practices, strategies and services. An oil leader, based in Houston, Texas, competes in a tight oil market by consistently assessing innovative designs and services. Despite their obvious successes, there is always a place to develop a competitive edge, or increase internal productivity.
To curb expenses, the company’s integral IT Department decided it was time to invest in necessary inventory software to improve the department’s productivity. Currently, the IT Department houses a warehouse on a large complex, where thousands of machines, computers/laptops, mice, keyboards, and headsets are stored and distributed. The department came to EMS Barcode Solutions looking for a simple and user-friendly solution that could implement to augment an unsatisfactory internal system.
Current Inventory System and The Problems
The internal system in place was a simple excel spreadsheet, which at the time, fed into a program equipped to do a simple update and inventory count. Despite the simplicity, users complained of slow update times, inaccurate counts, and lack of information of the items, such as location or serial number. And often, the users found that they would not have enough inventory to distribute items to necessary sites.
User-Friendly Inventory Control Solution
Software and existing scanners
They had several bluetooth scanners and some thermal label printers in place, and were happy to know they could use those with the new software; but they also wanted the mobility of having a hand-held device, for instant updates on items as they arrived. This was a good feature to spotlight, as users can pull an audit in a swift amount of time.
Nowadays, individuals are on the move and rely heavily on hand-held smartphones to stay in the loop. The Wasp software allows tech-savvy individuals to check inventory in-and-out on a local computer, a remote laptop, or any mobile device. Additionally, the program’s on-the-go features is appealing to the new professional, who is not always tied to a desk.
EMS set up the Professional version of the software, as the initial platform; however they are looking to expand to Enterprise because of its ability to cover several lots on their complex.
