The PPG Industries Coatings Plant, in Delaware, OH, was looking to improve their inventory management of products purchased from a vendor who also happened to be a Link Software client. The existing client’s inventory system, based around unique barcodes, was used as a foundation for the program in Delaware.
- Specially written software for Unitech barcode scanners allows plant workers to seamlessly scan inventory with minimal user interaction.
- Supports physical counts of all on hand inventory, incoming product as it is delivered and outgoing inventory as it moves to the plant floor for production use.
- Front-end web application that lets PPG Industries staff view inventory totals for each vendor SKU currently at the facility.
- Automated email reports for a variety of scans and summaries. Each email includes an attached spreadsheet with all data for internal use throughout the company.
