Reduce Human Error
Utilizing inventory scanning technology greatly reduces the possibility of making a mistake in your count. Imagine how much the slip of a finger – 50 vs 500 – could cause you in entering your inventory! A mistyped number could mean that you’ve got way less than you planned for – as in, you don’t have enough of an item to properly produce for your menu. Or, perhaps you didn’t type the right number, and now you have more than enough product – which can cause a problem with perishable items.
If you’re using an inventory scanning device, as soon as the delivery arrives to your site, you can bring the device directly to the delivery location. There, you can confirm receipt of items and update your inventory in real-time. If you become busy with another task, you won’t be bombarded with the task of updating the inventory later in the day, or worse, risk forgetting to update the inventory at all. It will all be “in the cloud” – giving you one less thing to worry about.
