The cost of product inventory is the largest cost for retailers and having the correct amount of inventory on-hand and the right mix is essential to improve revenues and margins as well as customer satisfaction. Mobile computers enable retailers to keep accurate inventory levels through cycle counts as well as complete physical inventories. The information gained from these inventory activities can be combined with sales data to improve ordering and inventory stock levels.
Inventory information collected via mobile computers can also be analyzed to determine the best-selling sizes or colors of particular items so you can ensure that you have the products your customers want. Effective data capture technologies like bar code scanners and RFID readers deliver improved visibility wherever it is needed, from the backroom to the sales floor.
