5 Helpful Benefits of a QR Inventory System

When you’re first implementing inventory control, it can be difficult to decide what kind of system you want to use. One option available is a QR inventory management system. QR codes are a type of barcode most commonly used with mobile devices.

Here’s what you can expect from a QR code-based inventory system.

Track Your Inventory and Assets in Real Time

If you have many moving parts in your inventory, you need to know what’s on the floor now. Information from yesterday or even an hour ago can create confusion among team members. If your records show that you have multiples of a specific item but actually only have one, this can create several problems for your company. Customers will stop trusting your ability to deliver and might take their business elsewhere.

 

“A QR inventory will cut down on time spent on data entry and review the accuracy of the records in question.”

 

Use QR Inventory to Instantly Access Asset Information

Some inventory systems require a large amount of data entry to change or pull up asset records. QR codes make this process instantaneous. This type of information transfer will also reduce the number of errors in your inventory records, so you can be sure what you’re looking at is accurate. This will give you the information you need to make informed decisions during quarterly reviews.

Speed Up Your Inventory Process

Maintaining an accurate inventory can take up dozens of man hours every week. A QR inventory will cut down on time spent on data entry and review the accuracy of the records in question. Your team can then use this time for other administrative tasks, like fulfilling customer orders or reviewing budget requirements.

Utilize Cloud Technology Through QR Codes

QR codes make it easy for you to connect to and store information in the cloud. Databases stored in the cloud are easily accessible to all your team members and aren’t restricted to one specific location. This can be incredibly helpful if your inventory requires your employees to spend a great deal of time on the floor. Cloud-based inventory systems eliminate the need to go back to an office to update records and simplify updating records in real time.

Attach Photos and GPS Location

QR codes also enable you to add other information, like inventory photos or GPS location. These features aren’t available in spreadsheets or manual data entry. Photos make it easy for your team members to identify equipment or tools in a hurry while having a precise location through GPS to eliminate any confusion.

Asset Panda’s platform simplifies using QR codes to track your company’s inventory. Our cloud-based software supports the devices you and your employees are already using, allowing you to access inventory records on the floor. Easily customizable fields provide plenty of space for you to attach photos and any other information your employees need to know about each of your assets.

One of our clients uses Asset Panda to enable employees to request new equipment when other tools in their factory environment stop working. QR codes help them implement new protocols over several different departments in the company.
