The business landscape is changing rapidly. Companies need to adapt quickly. They are transitioning from manual to automated processes. As a result, they require additional equipment and machinery.
Keeping track of all the assets and equipment can be challenging for any organization. Picture a corporation with thousands of equipment items that cannot determine which pieces are frequently utilized and where they are located. Obtaining all of this information can be very consuming, and records can occasionally contain several errors. Companies can achieve significant improvements by eliminating equipment idle time, improving traceability, and ensuring compliance with proper inventory control.
Why is it Important to Track Equipment?
Inventory is essential for all companies because it aids in income generation. As a result, it’s critical to keep merchandise safe and secure from idle time and misplacement.
Idle time and misplaced inventory can be hazardous to a company’s operations since they can disrupt everyday operations, lowering productivity when production activity is not completed on time. It causes product delivery delays and might lead to consumer dissatisfaction. Above all, companies are losing their customers.
A Need for a Quick Solution
Many organizations are unaware of the location of their inventory. The employer doesn’t have proper knowledge of which equipment is most used and which is just sitting in the warehouse. One of the USA’s largest lawn-care providers, serving more than 2.3 million residential and commercial customers across 200 branches nationwide, struggled to keep track of their equipment and inventories like blowers, tillers, lawn blowers, aerator machines, sprayer machines, and tractors.
