Today's post will tell you how using Stockpile quick easy inventory system can help you keep things straight. Keep reading to learn more.
Start off Right
Use care when you're creating your item records. Your Stockpile records will only be as good as the data that you put in the system. Take the time to name items correctly and be sure and take advantage of the ability to add additional fields. Those extra pieces of data will provide more checkpoints to ensure that you are looking at the right item later. You can even include a photograph in your record for even easier identification.
Use Areas and Locations
Often mistaken identity situations are the result of someone being in a rush. You expect the pink shirt to be on the second shelf and you see something pink so you grab it. Then you find yourself apologizing to your customer because you came back with a pair of shorts instead of a tee. The more specific you are about where items can be found the better your chances are of always finding exactly what you're looking for. Thanks to areas and locations you can be very precise. Use that level of detail to your advantage. You can even use Stockpile quick easy inventory system to track inventory across multiple locations.
Accessibility is important. Stockpile allows you to give multiple employees access to the system. Because Stockpile is available for free you don't have to worry about the licensing fees forcing you to limit who can use the system. You can also access your data when you're out of the office. Stockpile quick easy inventory system is mobile compatible so you can "see" your inventory on the go as long as you have internet access.
Labels are another way to help ensure you're looking at the right record. The more descriptive you are in your records, the more details you'll have to confirm that this is the item you're looking for. Go ahead and add labels that will help you distinguish one item from another. The more checks and balances you put in place, the better info you'll get out of the system.
