Since we launched Crafty, we dreamt of a world where our clients could run manage their stock rooms the same way that sophisticated supply chains manage their warehouse inventory levels. As commanded by Hall & Oates, we're makin' our dreams come true!
Having worked with Fortune 500 companies in solving their inventory problems, our co-founder team decided to build our own inventory management software for office managers, as opposed to buying an off-the-shelf software.
The objective of our inventory management software is:
- Automate the ordering process for sub-locations within a client's office
- Hold tighter inventory levels in our client's stock rooms (to reduce waste!)
- Give our Procurement Team direct line of sight to inventory levels so that we can keep your favorite products in-stock more regularly
Our Inventory Center effectively virtualizes the different stocking locations within your space so that we can track the consumption of individual products in different locations throughout your space and across your various buildings and cities. This means our tech can track your consumption levels based on floor, kitchen or storage space.
When on-site, our Field Operations team inputs your inventory levels into our Crafty Operator App, and our inventory logic (pictured below) does the rest!
For clients who were placing their own orders before working with Crafty, they've saved hours of time each day by empowering Crafty's Inventory Management technology.
Holding Tight Inventory Levels
Because our inventory logic reacts to the ebbs and flows of consumption within each sub-location of your office, we are quick to refill and avoid over-ordering.
Let's say one kitchen sees a ton of spills in one day. When we take inventory, our software will order more paper towels directly to that storage location on the next delivery. If there are no spills for a while in that location, our software won't order more paper towels to that location. It's that simple :)
Often, when we walk into prospective new client offices, we open cabinets and find excessive inventory levels of single products (e.g., two-years worth of green tea?!). That's your budget wasting away in that cabinet!
Line of Sight to Your Inventory Levels
Because your Inventory Center (i.e., the software that your Account Manager uses to manage your office's inventory levels) communicates directly with our warehouse, our system is able to allocate warehouse inventory for your next order the second your order is placed.
