How Eliminating Inventory Errors in Macola Saves Money

pig centeredControlling your inventory successfully means more money in the bank. One of the first places to start is looking for inventory errors that could be eliminated.

Errors can often happen when inventory is moved without being recorded. Common places this occurs include:

  • Material is pulled from stock but transfers don’t get completed in Macola.
  • Items are received at the dock and written down on paper but transactions don’t get completed in Macola.
  • Cycle Counting reports incorrect counts or missed counts because of transpositions.
  • Shipping department tries to ship something that hasn’t been reported yet in Macola. If inventory doesn’t exist, it can’t be shipped.

When inventory information is wrong people become frustrated, don’t trust the information in the system, and have to search for the correct information. People’s time and effort cost money. If Purchasing buys too much product, your money is tied up with the wrong items. If Purchasing buys too little product, you might miss a customer delivery and that really costs you money. Or you have to stop a productions line – ouch! All because inventory information is inaccurate.
