Lake Forest, CA (PRWEB) January 22, 2014
MarginPoint, a leading provider of cloud-based indirect material management solutions, today announced the availability of MarginPoint Mobile Storeroom for Smartphones, a new mobile application that enables companies to control their mobile indirect material inventories anytime and anywhere using an iPhone or Android smartphone. This new app enables companies with significant mobile inventory to effectively manage and track material usage across their entire network of mobile inventory locations as well as provides greater flexibility to companies that want to leverage their existing base of smartphone devices to access the MarginPoint mobile storeroom solution.
The Mobile Storeroom for Smartphones app allows users to quickly and efficiently record inventory usage in real-time as material is issued from a mobile storeroom location. The application utilizes the smartphone’s on-board camera functions as a barcode scanner to further streamline transaction processing. The ability to instantly update inventory as transactions occur enables companies to quickly see where, when, why and what materials are used in order to ensure that the right material is deployed to the right location to meet the organization’s operational needs.
“This new mobile app puts significant new indirect materials management capabilities at the fingertips of a much larger segment of the mobile workforce that, by and large, already uses and relies on their smartphones in day-to-day activities,” says David Kim, vice president of product management for MarginPoint. “This enables companies that rely on significant amounts of field-based inventory data to support their operations and deploy the MarginPoint Mobile Storeroom solution much more rapidly and cost-effectively, delivering a prompt ROI.”
