SmartVan offers real time inventory usage by user or job, ability to assign products to job numbers, multi supplier stock, auto re-ordering through the Sourcerer platform and via Smartie tag utilisation and asset tracking.
Van stock management utilising NFC technology
NFC stands for Near Field Communication. It’s how smart phones can interact with something in close proximity to provide a wireless connection between your device and another. This allows two-way communication, between the devices to enable them to send and receive information.
How SmartVan inventory management works
This enterprise wide fleet materials management platform has been specifically designed to meet all of your indirect material inventory management needs.
The users' PIN number determines that individual's user rights as SmartVan App reconfigures itself each time a new PIN is entered.
The user simply taps the phone against the NFC tagged product bin – this creates the pick list of items and allows the user to enter quantities required. This technology now extends to include barcodes.
Job codes used
When job codes are used – SmartVan will prevent items being issued unless a job code has been selected.
When the list is complete the user ends the transaction by tapping 'Confirm Items Issued’.
Unrestricted access functionality
The super-user has the ability to issue, return and restock items and also manage tags and perform maintenance functions.
Restricted access functionality
A restricted access user will only be able to perform a limited number of these functions – for example, on-screen icons are disabled.
