How many mistakes and how much time are you currently encountering with your manual Inventory transaction processing system today?
I’m talking from receipt of materials to shipping the finished part(s) to the customer. EstesGroup consulting will show your manufacturing/distribution facility the real value of using an online Inventory transaction (Data Collection/Handheld) system.
What does stock-to stock supply between warehouses or bins (back-to-forward stock) in a fully directed, managed and transactional environment mean to your supply chain and distribution process? Why is the Automatic, Manual and Managed distribution replenishment functionality in the Epicor Supply Chain Management system important to use?
