An equipment dealer wanted to reduce the time spent on doing manual stock takes and ensure inventory was maintained above minimum levels to avoid out of stock items.
We built a smart shelf that had sensors which monitored and detected when someone took an item from the shelf.
By knowing the exact location of the item taken and the quantity, the company kept stock levels at an optimal number by firing off re-ordering processes when the minimum inventory level was reached.
- The company was able to avoid out of stock situations by keeping consistent inventory levels.
- Employees no longer had to spend hours doing stock takes, resulting in resource savings for the business.
