October and the time is coming, where many companies start to think about stocktaking. Make sure that your employees are able to handle this efficiently and with little expense.

Using the inventory module of w3/max, you will be able to benefit from the potentials of integrated stocktaking no matter if you are already using w3/max or if you would like to use our inventory module in connection with an existing warehouse management system.

Many companies only start to organize stocktaking only shortly before its start. This results in long down times and an insufficient use of reserve capacities. With our stocktaking module, the warehouse operations can easily continue seamlessly, as only those articles will have to be blocked that belong to the basic population which has to be counted. All other articles can be accessed as usual. This is an advantage not to be underestimated for example in the spare parts business. So maybe you should consider using sample stocktaking as an alternative to a permanent stocktaking. The advantage is obvious instead of creating additional costs during the whole year and to count parts, only samples will be counted and projected mathematically.

This way, a stocktaking that is independent of a storage area can easily be implemented. In the manual warehouse areas, employees will be guided through stocktaking by the system. In agreement with the auditor, stratified sampling can be applied to reduce the basic population. The automatic parts of the warehouse will be accessed directly. This way, a paperless recording of the counting can be done directly at the working stations. After the stocktaking has been accepted by the responsible person, automatic stock level corrections will be reported to higher-level systems, so that manual and error-prone inventory corrections become obsolete completely.

The savings that can be achieved this way are obvious and we will gladly give you a presentation of the possibilities. So take the chance to optimize your stocktaking and arrange an appointment with one of your experts, or just book trainings and stocktaking support.
