Embrace Today’s Technology for Effective Inventory Management in 2015

March 2, 2015

Recent reports in the media have been recalling the technology advances predicted in the movie “Back to the Future II,” where Marty McFly and Doc Brown take their flying Delorean-car time machine to the future – specifically to the year 2015. (The movie was made in 1989.) The movie’s writers were interviewed by an NBC reporter for the Today Show, and the reporter told the writers, “I have to say, you were dead on with a lot of stuff…” – and they were!

(AFI), that’s something we’re committed to doing for our customers, as well: Making their lives easier by using the latest technology available for supply chain management to keep the process smooth and easy.

Simply put, AFI is embracing the technology available to us today to help our customers do their jobs. We offer vendor-managed inventory (VMI) systems and customer-managed inventory (CMI) systems that improve and streamline the supply chain process. These VMI and CMI systems also provide our customers with many benefits, including:

  • Overall cost savings
  • Reduced administrative costs
  • Streamlined purchasing process
  • Reduction of stock shortages (which ultimately leads to increased sales)
  • Increased accuracy – with fewer order mistakes and less returned dead inventory.

To ensure that we provide our customers with the best VMI or CMI solutions for their inventory needs, we offer the latest technology available in the industry today: the Assembly Virtual Inventory System (A.V.I.S.) and the Assembly FOB (A-FOB) for accurate inventory management. Here’s how these systems work:

A.V.I.S is cloud-based inventory management software that provides our customers with real-time visibility into remote storeroom inventories. When needed, it automates replenishment. There are many advantages to using this type of system, but overall, A.V.I.S. guarantees that inventory is in stock at exactly the right time — when needed and not before. Customers using A.V.I.S. are realizing up to a 90% reduction in procurement costs through automation, with decreases in shrinkage and overall inventory costs.

Assembly FOB (A-FOB) is an easy-to-use CMI program developed specifically and designed to meet customers’ needs in managing their inventory. With the A-FOB unit, you scan bin items and upload the files to us at AFI. It’s a low-cost solution that simplifies the inventory management process and puts the latest inventory management technology and control in your hands.

The technology of 2015 is here! Today’s technology offers so many advantages to make our lives easier, including making our lives at work in business and industry easier, too. We’d be happy to tell you more about how A.V.I.S. and A-FOB can help your business embrace the latest inventory management technology available today. Reach out to us at any time by calling 800.488.4777.
