With a fully integrated inventory management system, physical inventory cycle counting can be a thing of the past. Some companies still go through the necessary and arduous process of manual inventory. This route costs companies manpower and loss (or delay) of income, due to the possible stopping of operations at a facility.
A total inventory management software system, like our own TopShelf, utilizes automated cycle counting to provide an ongoing measure of inventory accuracy and procedure execution. Cycle counting entails counting a small amount of inventory each and every day, with the intent of cycling through the entire inventory on a rotating basis. The resultant inventory accuracy will lead to higher confidence in future inventory valuation. Simply put, better information leads to better decisions.
