Managing your company’s inventory doesn’t need to be a complete nightmare. Sure, your accounting or Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software can help you keep track of your inventory as it goes in and out of the warehouse, but to keep an exact count of the inventory you have on hand, you’ll need to complete a physical inventory count. An exact inventory is vital to maintaining and improving your bottom line. However, it can become a time-consuming and costly process. Even more so if it’s a mostly manual process and temporary employees need to be hired to complete the task. Depending on how frequently your business completes this task, the amount of money spent can add up quickly. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way to make the process more efficient?
When it comes to your business’s physical inventory count, having the right tools for the job makes inventory tracking easy and hassle-free. Long gone are the days of the time-consuming and costly physical counts. Advances in the way we are able to record data has improved both the efficiency and accuracy of physical inventory counts. From the versatility and portability of mobile devices to laptop computers with your inventory software program pre-loaded, Rentacomputer.com will make sure that you have the proper tool in your toolbox.
Laptops are a common solution for inventory counts. As they are relatively portable and have available USB ports, they are perfect for taking out to the warehouse floor and setting up a temporary command center. You can connect a printer to print out more tally sheets, or a scanner to quickly get an electronic version of a completed tally sheet for future reference. Laptops with full numeric pads, or external numeric pads connected via USB, make entering inventory counts a breeze. For those who need a little more screen space, laptop rentals are easily paired with monitor rentals to get that extra screen space you desire. Knowing that every laptop we ship has a specific purpose for the end user, Rentacomputer.com offers software services so that we are able to customize your rental so that it arrives at its destination ready to serve that purpose. We’re able to preload free software or create an image from a seed unit so that every laptop rented has the company-specific applications that you need.
While many companies still elect to rely on printed forms and manual entries to record their inventory count, using a mobile device can save you both time and manhours to complete the physical count process. Tablets and smartphones have been proven to be invaluable when it comes to physical inventory counts. If your inventory system is set up for it, the built-in cameras (or our external barcode scanners!) can easily and quickly scan bar codes or QR codes to quickly find the item in your system, and users can enter data directly from their device. For those companies that are in a harsh environment, Rentacomputer.com has a supply of rugged tablets that are also ergonomic and handheld. If you’re concerned about a lack of WiFi in your warehouse, our mobile devices are able to arrive at your location with a cellular data plan ready for use.
