Large Energy Company Needing A Inventory Tracking Solution
Energy Company Overview:
We had the pleasure of working with one of the largest midstream energy companies in North America today. They approached us seeking help in finding a better way to track their parts inventory across three divisions of the company housed under a single roof.
Why Energy Tracking Software is Needed:
The client had been searching for an energy tracking software that would not only let them track their incoming/outgoing parts inventory, but would let them effectively manage three separate “companies” under a single unified system. They also had certain items that could not be barcoded themselves, and this had presented a challenge to their search.
We recommended the Wasp Inventory Control software as the energy tracking software to the client, knowing that the software allows for an unlimited number of “Sites” (major locations where inventory can be stored, with sub-locations) and that each of these Sites could be restricted per user. We presented this to the client and showed them how this could be used to effectively separate their three divisions so there would be no confusion or cross contamination. We also presented the ability to use the barcode label printing features to not only print barcodes for the parts themselves, but also to create a book or binder of barcodes that could be used in cases where the inventory itself would not support a physical barcode. With these two critical issues addressed for the client, the other benefits such as email alerts based on minimum stock levels, and the ability to quickly issue purchase orders for understocked items were just icing on the cake.
The client was relieved to see a clear presentation of their key issues being addressed and resolved in such a short time. By listening to their concerns we were able to make the right recommendation and support our claim to their satisfaction. With our direct implementation support and ongoing training the client was able to be operational shortly after our presentation.

Many Wasp Barcode -seeking clients are coming to us with no system in place at all- they look in a bin, see that they are low on a certain stock item, and place an order for however many seems like a good number at the time. This was the case with this client, who came to EMS Barcode Solutions looking for a way to have better knowledge and control of what parts need to be ordered, and how many- in general, he wanted to better track their rate of use.
Maintenance costs for parts and equipment can take a hit at your finances. Many experienced maintenance managers and crews are equipped with fixed equations and solutions to inform owners whether it’s better to replace or repair the equipment. Though these upkeep costs are inevitable, businesses should get to early repairs, to prevent a costly replacement.
