Inventory consumption involves re-recording every item with basic yet quintessential details that are beneficial for the center. With minor to major details like quantity in units, manufacturing date, expiry date, department-wise allocation and more, every item goes through a lot of paperwork to record these and takes way lot of time to cover up all items. However, the manual tasks at this step lead to errors in the system and can cause unnecessary leakages.
On a second note, if we are utilizing inventory resources the right way at consumption, the potential chances of errors or leakages can be eliminated. Not to forget the fact that the more items consumed, the higher the rate of manual mistakes occurring with it.
Similarly, the approval process can slow down management if kept pending for quite some time.
How do we get rid of manual errors at stock consumption in your inventory?
Automation is a solution to prevent errors; thus avoiding chances of recording incorrect data at consumption. One of the easiest, traditional yet robust ways to do it is through barcode scanning. CrelioHealth has therefore introduced an inventory mobile app to ease processes that are tedious and time-consuming.
Crelio Inventory mobile app allows you to carry on with your inventory operations uninterrupted and hands-free. It allows you to consume stock using a simple yet advanced solution that is through scanning barcodes. It is also beneficial to handle approvals at placing & receiving orders.
