Effective inventory and stores management in maintenance are crucial for ensuring operational efficiency, cost-effectiveness, equipment reliability, and safety. By optimising inventory levels and organising storage effectively, organisations can significantly improve their maintenance operations.

However, inventory and stores management is not without its challenges, and can often mean lots of administration including paper stock levels that are never quite right. Maintaining inventory tracking and accuracy as well as balancing inventory levels whilst ensuring accurate demand forecasting, dealing with spoilage, optimising storage space and controlling costs, can be extremely demanding on Stores and Inventory Managers.

With all this in mind, SSG Insight decided to develop a responsive web application to enable Stores Management on the go, in addition to the existing Inventory Management functionality within Agility CMMS. This brand-new app ensures accuracy and speed, and has received an overwhelmingly positive response from Agility CMMS customers involved in the BETA testing phase.
