When it comes to the supply chain, there are three questions to which knowing the answer is imperative: when, where, and how much? Luckily, there are inventory control solutions available to help businesses answer these important questions. Here’s why you need to know when, where, and how much, and how Wasp’s Inventory Control Solution can help:

When?

Stock control requires maintaining an adequate supply without excessive oversupply. Not knowing when to order inventory could lead to stock outs and backorders, which cut into gross profits. Not understanding your up-to-date inventory levels can also lead to overstocked items. Having too much inventory brings about its own share of issues, including increased storage costs.

Where?

When it comes to the supply chain, there are a number of reasons you might need to answer the question of where to find items. Oftentimes answering the question of where involves tracking and managing of inventory at multiple locations. It’s impossible to get inventory in the hands of a consumer if it’s lost at the warehouse.

How Wasp’s Inventory Tracking can help: Wasp’s Inventory Control solution allows you to track inventory by site, lot, location, serial number, data code, or pallet.
