The Benefits of Custom Mobile App Development for Inventory Control

In many industries inventory control is more than just taking count of products and supplies. For some industries inventory control management is a matter of conforming to industry regulations and keeping the company in compliance with codes and safety protocol.

Custom mobile app development has assisted a number of businesses that span a broad range of industries to manage and organize their business more effectively, and to increase profitability, while complying with regulatory procedure. This has been proven in the healthcare industry with HIPAA compliant custom web app design and in field services with hazardous material inventory control applications.

In a business with an employee changeover such as environmental services where technicians are picking up and leaving chemicals for the next that are used in bodies of water and spraying for mosquitoes in neighborhoods, an inventory control app is not only beneficial for documenting what chemicals were taken and returned but necessary to ensure the safety of the company’s team and community.

Technology has come far in recent decades and we can take an idea for a custom mobile app and have it designed and implemented for businesses that benefit from the usability and portability of being able to schedule, manage, sell and communicate from a smartphone or tablet.

SD3 has designed and developed apps for just this type of application including:

  • Application screens
  • Database tables
  • The custom web service messages necessary to communicate with the central server.
  • Server-side web services and SQL Server or Oracle database interaction in support of the mobile app.
  • And more…

In the case of environmental services, custom mobile app design can be developed to display the job schedule database, and to report a summary of the chemicals that were required and used in that workday. Using the chemical summary screen the supervisor or manager would work with the team at the warehouse to load the truck with the required amount of chemicals. At the end of the day all of the jobs, and chemicals used, can be summarized on a screen and used during the check-in process. This tracks where every chemical is used, how much of it was required, and determines what should be taken out on a similar job in the future. An app for environmental services can reduce spends, increase efficiency and provide the exact data that is necessary to be able to report numbers and facts in the case of an emergency.

SD3 designs, develops and deploys custom mobile apps for a number of industries and applications. Contact SD3 to see how we can make custom mobile app development work for your business.
