Whether at the job site or on the production floor, you rely on up-to-date information and top-of-the-line resources to stay competitive. Construction businesses need to have the right tools for the job. Don’t let outdated filing systems or mismanaged assets bring your business to a standstill.
Keep your machines humming and crews running with inventory control software. It will help you in the following areas of your business.STEER YOUR SUPPLIES
With easy barcode printing and scanning, all of the materials and goods that you work with on a daily basis can be immediately tracked, meaning that there will be no more time wasted on repetitive audits or stockouts.

Scanning items’ barcodes is a safer strategy that helps you improve your accuracy. You can track your supplies in real time with the aid of good barcode scanner.ASSET AID
Keep your tools of the trade in play, from big loaders and bulldozers to bags of hammers and small nails. Track your assets in one location or several locations, transfer them from site to site for specific construction jobs, and even monitor production reports to see how things are going. You can do that with transfer orders or by fulfilling sales orders that come in from your customers.WORK ORDERS
Small, medium, or larger than life, trackable work orders accurately reflect inventory, worker assignment, stage completion, estimated cost, and projected completion dates. You can create work orders that can be completed in a single stage or you can even combine two or more work orders into a manufacture order. That is for multistage manufacturing jobs that require you to complete jobs in the right order. They can be regular manufacturing jobs, repair jobs, replacement jobs, and more.SHIP AND RECEIVE
