ByBox expands Thinventory offering
ByBox has today (8 June) launched Thinventory Mobile – a smartphone app which enables engineers to confirm collections and returns – and also announced updates to its Thinventory Lite technology, making parts of the service free to businesses as part of the core offering. A key part of the Thinventory Mobile offering, Verify, enables engineers to scan collections and returns to a Smart Box from their smartphone. Engineers can enter the condition of the return part, which is configurable by company, and can order return labels to be delivered directly to their nearest Smart Box.
The technology reduces the time spent on the phone ordering and tracking parts and equipment, thereby increasing the time spent carrying out important jobs rather than admin. Stock loss is also reduced as engineers have the ability to log returns and collections in real-time.
Following the launch of Thinventory Lite last year, ByBox is now making a key part of the service, Despatcher+, available to all businesses free of charge.
Despatcher+ enables engineers to capture SKUs at the point of dispatch, which both improves real-time supply chain visibility and enables businesses to maintain their existing Warehouse Management System (WMS).
When used together, Thinventory Mobile and Thinventory Lite enable engineers and management teams to make informed decisions about where stock needs to be based on individual requirements.
Stuart Miller, CEO and co-founder of ByBox, commented: “Thinventory Mobile represents the next stage of revolution in logistics, putting visibility and control firmly in the hands of businesses.”
