“With Fuuz, I can set up one screen for receiving and serial tracking and pull all of the data in and then push it back into the ERP.”
– Robert Bierwagen VP of Information Technology, Acuity Capital Group
3 Big Benefits of Inventory Management on the Fuuz Platform
You can use the Fuuz Inventory Management app out of the box and host it on the Fuuz platform. You get big-time benefits from the Inventory Management app on the Fuuz platform. Here are the top three.
- Track and monitor various states of inventory status within Fuuz. For example, if Quality Assurance (QA) puts something on hold you can automatically update that inventory so it isn’t included in a picking strategy.
- Track lot history and expiration dates automatically using Fuuz. Lot numbering can be based on either your in-house requirements or a customer’s requirements.
- Take control of lot management with Fuuz’ granular traceability that shows where things are and where they came from.
