With the cloud inventory management software and inventory tracking mobile application combo all mobile devices and computers feed and receive data from one central inventory database.
The problem with many inventory management systems is the delay between the actual inventory transactions and inventory data entry into the system. Field employees have no way of knowing what inventory is available in stock, and where is the closest location where they can pick up required inventory, materials or parts.
With the QR Inventory software all employees who handle inventory can easily record a transaction in real time using a smartphone or a tablet. As soon as an asset or inventory transaction is recorded on a smartphone, inventory stock is updated in a central database. All authorized users of the QR Inventory system have real time access to the inventory stock in all locations, can check how and where inventory was used - on the mobile devices in the field and computers in the office.
