Mobile Inventory Management With iOS or Android

get Mobile-InventoryRetailers using Android and iOS devices for mobile business management now have a new tool in Point Inventory Count. The software, developed by New West Technologies, allows users to count, assign, analyze, post, report, and update inventory in real-time from multiple devices. Point Inventory turns smart phones and tablets into intelligent counting devices for barcode scanning and point of sale (POS) updates to a central management interface that the company has named Control Point. This interface enables users to manage counting devices, make inventory exceptions and corrections, run reports, and update inventory easily and efficiently.

Beyond simply counting inventory, the software also allows the user to quantify inventory value. This is crucial to small- and medium-sized retailers who may rely on seasonal sales. According to the company’s website, the reports generated can help analyze business performance, inventory turns, merchandise replenishment planning, shrinkage and price management in response to fast or slow inventory movement. All count data is stored in the cloud and is accessible from any browser, anywhere.

Features include real time data sync to the online system, an intuitive user interface, custom scope counting with cycle counting capability, and data connector for Microsoft Dynamics RMS and export compatibility with many POS and ERP systems, including Quickbooks.

Point Inventory was designed to be intuitive, user friendly, fast and portable for business and retail operations. With a crossover platform compatibility for all Android and iOS mobile devices and tablets, all reports are accessible in real time, allowing retailers with multiple stores to compare performance, rotate stock and analyze profitability on the fly.

Control Point is the heart of the system. It allows users to define the scope of the count using filter criteria and parameters including a specific location, a specific supplier, department, category, price range, type or any other custom filter criteria. Because the software is built as a seamless integration between the mobile device and the Control Point, no data is lost in the event of a disconnection.

According to the company, every aspect of the control panel was designed with the user in mind. Feedback from customers pointed to a need for a reduced ramp-up time, integrating workflow to the navigation, and posting data back to the POS or ERP application. getpoint2

The intuitive navigation options conform to the menus users are already familiar with on both Android and iOS applications, from app download to simplified installation and menu selections. The app, now available on Play Store and iTunes, downloads and installs in less than 20 seconds, and can be found on the Google Play store.

Features include real time data sync to the online system, an intuitive user interface, custom scope counting with cycle counting capability, and data connector for Microsoft Dynamics RMS and export compatibility with many POS and ERP systems, including Quickbooks.
