Real-Time Inventory Intelligence
Real-Time Inventory Management, Visibility and Traceability
Inventory management has transformed from a single-location to a distributed multi-location operational environment. Warehouses have become e-tailer stores and retail stores have become e-tailer warehouses. Items are no-longer moved from back-rooms to point-of-sale (POS) locations, but can be direct shipped to customers. Similarly vendors are also direct shipping to customers as opposed to stores to improve their margins by reducing stock markdowns inherent in store fronts. Whether you are challenged with Omni-Channel requirements or just need better visibility in monitoring your inventory, anywhere and anytime, you need to transform your operations by taking advantage of Omnitrol's (TaaS™) Smart Infrastructure's™ solutions.
OMNITROL Inventory Intelligence extends basic inventory management of stock level and location to inventory status and tracking combined with process intelligence. By applying real-time analytics on inventory movements, sales depletion rates, returns, condition and associated demographics our customers can more effectively and efficiently manage their replenishments, reduce over-stocks and improve margins. Omnitrol's connected Smart Infrastructure's™ for Supplier Collaboration integrated with Global Track and Trace (GTT) provides you with the industry's only and most comprehensive solution to deliver the required benefits of IoT across your global operations.
Moreover, our Inventory Intelligence has been applied to monitoring any and all types of assets. TaaS™ is the only solution on the market than can dynamically configure any asset with behavioral attributes that need to be monitored and tracked. This includes, but not limited to, apparel, footwear, high-value assets (jewelry, handbags, toys, bicycles, etc.), medical devices, perishables, returnable assets (totes, rental items), tools, IT assets, even work-orders (see Manufacturing Intelligence), shipping & receiving (see Logistics Intelligence), all seamlessly connected as TaaS™ Smart Infrastructure's™.
