In June 2008 Apple released its iPhone 3G to significant fanfare. The iPhone 3G was Apple’s second release, succeeding the original iPhone that had been initially offered on the market one year earlier. Long lines with some particularly enthused individuals camping overnight for this latest and greatest innovation occurred at stores all over the country. The iPhone 3G certainly had significant technological upgrades over its predecessor but the iPhone 3G might best be remembered for the phrase “there’s an app for that” becoming a pop culture phenomenon.

Apple was awarded the trademark for that catchphrase a short while after the release of the iPhone 3G and one look at Apple’s website for the features of the iPhone shows that slogan still in a prominent promotional position (try saying that three times fast). According to this article that looked at a few iPhone trends it took 31 months after the App Store to open for there to be 10 billion downloads where as it took 67 months after the iTunes store opened for there to be 10 billion downloads of songs. On July 7, 2011 Apple released a press release to announce that there are over 425,000 applications to be downloaded and that there have been 15 billion downloads of applications. There literally is an app for that, even inventory management solutions.
Scout Incorporated’s topShelf warehouse management system has had an application available to download for quite some time now. Hundreds of customers are able to use their iPhone (or other smartphones) from anywhere in the world to view a real time visibility of their company’s inventory, scan barcodes, perform cycle counts of their inventory, and recently some companies that deliver their products are able to sign a proof of delivery right on their iPhone. Technology is always evolving, and undoubtedly there will be more features in the future that topShelf’s mobile application will be able to perform.
As unbelievable as it may seem, there are still even today some companies that do not enjoy any of these benefits because these companies still perform inventory manually. It is often the case that these companies do not realize how affordable and efficient an automated system would make their company. Don’t wait any longer, start realizing these benefits that hundreds of customers all over the world currently enjoy! Make the change today.
