Better track and act on your data
When data is stuck in legacy systems or scattered across different spreadsheets, it is impossible to act on and utilize that data. In the supply chain world, that can cause a host of issues when trying to make informed decisions about logistics, inventory, sourcing and procurement, and purchasing patterns.
Uniting and activating data is vital to being ready for constant change. Kent Hultstrand, Director of Business Operations at Packerland Broadband, automated tracking, reporting, and trend analysis for all of their parts, from warehouses to trucks. Now, all of this critical data lives in one central hub. Further, technicians in the field always have the parts they need to do their jobs, and the ordering process is much more streamlined.
“We also have better visibility into parts usage and can recognize expenses when parts are used versus when they leave the warehouse,” Kent added.
Collecting data is great, but without being able to centralize and analyze it, the data loses value. Ensuring your data is actionable makes a major difference when trying to make informed decisions on inventory and purchasing patterns.
