ByBox launches Thinventory Lite
ByBox has announced that it is set to launch its latest technology development, Thinventory Lite, which will enable businesses to increase the efficiency of their supply chain without the need to change their current warehouse management system (WMS). Thinventory Lite, which is a streamlined adaptation of the ByBox proprietary technology Thinventory Enterprise, enables engineers to capture SKUs at point of dispatch, which will improve supply chain visibility significantly.
According to ByBox: “With the SKU codes captured, all items can be traced live online with 100% visibility of their movement, from picking, packing and distribution to locker, through to returns and repairs; whilst simultaneously allowing businesses to maintain their existing WMS. Thinventory Lite also allows businesses to operate with less inventory and reduced stock loss, thereby improving efficiency.”
ByBox will also be launching Thinventory Insights, which enables engineers to confirm collections and returns through an intuitive smartphone app. Engineers can enter the state of the part (e.g. good, bad or unknown) and prepare returns in advance before putting them in a locker for collection.
According to ByBox, this offers the advantage of consolidating orders into one collection as engineers can organise multiple collections or dispatches in one go, rather than multiple times over a day.
The Thinventory Insights smartphone app will be launched initially on Android, followed soon after by IOS and Windows.
