Managing inventory is an ongoing process for school nutrition professionals – and it’s not exactly one that we look forward to. But, as discussed in a previous post, physical inventory counts are absolutely necessary to ensure that your operations run smoothly.
If you’re tired of spending a lot of time and effort with the old inventory management method – printing out count sheets, using the legendary ‘inventory clipboard’, etc. – maybe your district should consider implementing inventory scanning technology.
Although inventory management may seem daunting, it doesn’t have to be. Consider implementing inventory scanning technology into your school nutrition program to make your job a lot simpler!
