Inventory Logistic Management Using GPS/Wireless System at APICS Chapter
SoftElegance has submitted the presentation “Inventory Logistic Management Using GPS/Wireless System” at Houston Chapter of Association for Operations Management. The October’s session of APICS started with SoftElegance’s USA presentation.
“Many companies use traditional process to track inventory and provide project status updates. Over the years those traditional methods have proven to be inefficient, costly, and time consuming for yard and shop employees. Without a reliable way to track how many moves are made around the yard in a given day, many organizations lose money because they cannot determinate the optimal number of employees and forklifts required for route optimization”, says official APICS Pressrelease.
The presentation at APICS based on “Toughbook Material Handling Application“, developed by SoftElegance to reliably track each item’s movement around the yard using the laptop (Toughbook) embedded GPS and integrated barcode scanner, quickly passing movements communications from the planners to the forklift drivers and updating the material management system. With built in API’s, the Material Handling Application integrates seamlessly with major ERP or homegrown systems.
