CyFrame’s Main Inventory Benefits
Inventory maintenance is an integral part of all of the operational components of the CyFrame system. From purchasing and sales, through production and QA, to shipping and invoicing, inventory transactions are recorded in a timely and efficient manner.>
Real-time Inventory Status
By continuously updating inventory, CyFrame is able to provide up-to-the-minute information regarding stock quantities and location. This information is made available through strategically placed lookups and reports which greatly improves users’ ability to answer questions and make decisions.
Through the use of barcoded labels and hand-held scanners, CyFrame is able to provide time-saving interfaces to record inventory transactions. This not only saves time but also greatly increases the reliability and accuracy of the recorded transactions.
Automated Purchasing Dashboard
The CyFrame Purchasing Dashboard provides a powerful and intuitive interface for quickly evaluating purchasing requirements across multiple warehouses and for generating purchase orders. It provides suggested order quantities and priorities based on real-time, up-to-the-minute inventory status in a visually intuitive manner.
