At a given moment a warehouse houses between hundreds to thousands of SKUs, which can lead to chaos in the form of diminished inventory integrity and hence inefficient order fulfilment, if not managed in an organized manner. This gives rise to the need for stocking optimization, in order to identify the right product at the right time.
Warehouse inventory stocking requires strategic planning, with thorough detailing, and entails a variety of factors. Hence storage and movement in a warehouse can be highly complex, and requires a simple and consistent logical numbering system in order to allow the workforce to create a map of sorts, for easy inventory access when necessary.
The eXchange uses a fool proof simple yet logical system to easily locate inventory, by tagging the bins (racks/shelves) and bays (alleyways). As a bin bay system together with the meta information of each product, creates higher warehouse efficiency, and ensures order fulfilment, as from the moment an order alert pops up, the exact bin-bay whereabouts of the SKU are made available through the system.
