Implementing Inventory Management System via Custom Software
How Aciron does it
A global manufacturing company was experiencing inefficiencies in its inventory management processes. In other words, the company has suppliers across the world delivering product parts. As a result, multiple buyers are responsible for tracking the parts required for each product. They track from the manufacturing phase through delivery. This global team was looking for a custom database.
To start, the company needed a way to keep a master list of all inventory with easy access to parts’ delivery statuses and other pertinent information. Overall, the firm contacted Aciron to develop a custom inventory management system focused on enhancing supply management. In short, this system would include features for parts tracking, management, and reporting.
Aciron conducted interviews with client personnel to understand the company’s needs. As always, Aciron followed an agile, iterative approach to the application development. Thus, allowing the client to regularly review and make adjustments to the application. As a result, Aciron was easily able to incorporate the clients’ evolving requirements.
Throughout the project, Aciron focused on open communication. Certainly, we provided regular status reports and meetings. Aciron consistently engaged key client personnel. Therefore, ensuring project milestones were met on time and within budget.
In conclusion, Aciron developed a custom inventory management application. This application enables the company’s buyers to easily track and generate reports regarding the company’s inventory and deliveries.
In short, the user interface of the application was developed to be clean and user-friendly. Similarly, it enabled users to easily navigate and utilize the system. The intuitive automated system provides the client with a rapid means to collect, process, transmit, record, and manage inventory data.
Additionally, the database provides a clear view of any inventory shortages and delays. The database also provides communication tools, eliminating the need of traditional relay, such as phone and email.
To clarify, the system includes an extensive set of reporting mechanisms. Thus, allowing the planners, project managers, operations managers, and buyers to more effectively maintain inventory. With on-demand access to up-to-date detailed inventory data, the client made more informed decisions.
To sum up, the browser-based application eliminates inefficiencies. For example, using multiple spreadsheets and manual processes to track inventory. Since completion, the system has proved to be a critical business application for the client. Its secure solution has driven productivity and increased margins, while reducing costs.
