Save up to 90% of the effort compared to manual inventory

Does your inventory create a lot of work every time you run it?

  • Do you carry out the inventory mainly by manual counting?
  • Would you like to shorten the time required for an inventory run?
  • Do you have a large warehouse with storage areas that are sometimes difficult to access?
  • Do you want to create more transparency about stock levels and would like to carry out more frequent stocktaking?
