Real-time inventory management for stock availability and automated replenishment using IoT for supply chain optimization.
A leading energy utility company with large warehouses for storing and distributing tools and supplies to multiple service centers for the day-to-day maintenance and operations of energy transmission and distribution was tracking and managing its inventory and stock levels using manual methods. They are required to manage more than 1000 SKUs across the supply chain, with millions of inventory to track. The manual methods have significantly reduced productivity and slowed service operations, directly impacting the CapEx & OpEx.
The need for constant stock availability will cause depletion at various times of the year as the demand fluctuates.
Inventory costs have the most significant operating expenses for companies as they are fixed costs that do not vary with sales volume or transaction value.
Accuracy is the key to streamlining business operations. Accurate records of all the inventory supplies and stock availability effectively streamline the service operations.
The cost of lost inventory, replacing the missing inventory, and restoring the supply chain has a significant impact on both CapEx & OpEx.
