When it comes to Warehouse Management, Inventory Accuracy is THE Vital Sign you simply can’t afford to miss. An efficient, smooth-running Warehouse Operation can mean the difference between success and failure for businesses the world over.
A well-run Warehouse ensures continuous product flow throughout the business. This can inevitably result in satisfied customers and, in turn, have a positive effect on the all important ‘bottom line’.
Hitches, glitches and inefficiencies in your Warehouse system have a direct negative impact on your product margin and your business as a whole – chipping away incessantly at the solid foundations of your brand, reputation and future success.
WHY WAREHOUSE INVENTORY ACCURACY IS VITAL
Warehouse Inventory Accuracy is one of the key factors affecting any Warehouse system. Having an accurate count of your inventory is like having your finger on the pulse of your business – it literally gives you the ‘vital signs’ which keep your business healthy and fighting-fit.
THE HUMAN FACTOR
It is also one of the biggest challenges faced by Warehouse Management with the biggest cause of inaccuracy being human error. Errors in initial counts or regular counts and everyday picking cause major discrepancies between your warehouse management system and actual stock on hand.
Human error can also creep in in the form of time factors resulting in an inefficient system; insufficient knowledge or training of the manual warehouse management system; lack of decisive action when faced with a conflict or error; and errors being overlooked and ‘bypassed’.
Over time the errors and inaccuracies which started off as a ‘molehill’, pile-up and become a mountain which may seem insurmountable.
