Glovia Services Inc . has added an inventory management module to its on-demand enterprise software suite.
The new solution—GSInnovate Inventory Edition—integrates seamlessly and complements current ERP and manufacturing systems and applications, according to Jim Errington, director of sales support for Glovia Services.
Errington describes the solution as “flexible, affordable and accessible through a Web browser. He also says it requires no additional software, hardware or IT staff and can be implemented quickly and easily, without disrupting business operations.
"Today, manufacturers are still challenged and continue to struggle to gain inventory visibility and control from their existing systems," says Errington. "We saw the need for a pluggable, inventory software solution that allows manufacturers to track goods in real time while accurately managing and forecasting inventory levels across the enterprise—beyond the four walls—and report a single, accurate view of that up-to-date information to everyone who needs it, anytime and anywhere."
According Errington, Glovia’s experience in manufacturing and expertise in inventory software led to the realization that many manufacturers still rely on outdated inventory control methods such as manual spreadsheets and limited point solutions. These isolated approaches only contribute further to the non-integrated "islands of information" that can lead to costly missteps and errors in judgment.
GSInnovate Inventory Edition has deep inventory management, analysis and tracking functionalities including:








"We want to enable manufacturers with the right inventory software tools to meet today's real-world competitive challenges," adds Randy Ehler, president and CEO of Glovia Services. "GSInnovate Inventory Edition helps eliminate islands of information and provides manufacturers with a global, integrated view of all materials and inventories across multiple locations, which can significantly impact and improve the decision-making process, reduce costs, improve customer service, and simplify inventory count processes, resulting in a quick ROI by complementing and not disrupting their existing technology."
Glovia executives also stress the low-cost of implementation and ownership resulting from on-demand model under which GSInnovate Inventory Edition is sold. User companies don’t need at technical staff to maintain the software, they point out, and since it is priced per-user, customers are not required to make any long-term commitments.
