Streamlining SAP Inventory Management with PreBilt

SAP IM Multi Bin Management

We are excited to be working with a new customer to deploy our innovative mobile solution for the SAP supply chain, PreBilt™, facilitating full visibility, traceability, and auditability of stock across its supply chain. 

Developing and manufacturing innovative display technology for a wide range of applications, the customer is currently using SAP Inventory Management (IM). Relying on paper-based and manual processes, it was facing some issues surrounding the accuracy of stock quantities and locations. Following the results of an external audit, the customer was looking for a supplier which could provide a mobility solution to streamline inventory counting, deliver improved stock visibility and enable the ability to easily move stock between locations in SAP IM. 

Following discussions the company had with Barcode-IT, we were introduced as a longstanding partner in the SAP supply chain space to assist. With the customer not needing all the additional functionality that comes with SAP Warehouse Management (WM), we recommended that PreBilt, including IM Multi Bin Management capability, would be the most effective solution to fulfil its requirements. 

Our expert product team will now be rolling PreBilt out to the customer’s main plant in the UK, as well as its satellite storage facilities, digitising stock movements and physical inventory counting, all with one intuitive solution.  

The inclusion of IM Multi Bin Management will offer the customer even greater control of its stock. By enabling bins to be defined as storage locations, we can ensure that the business has full stock visibility, with real-time updates of movements in and out of the storage locations. Furthermore, utilising live data from SAP, we will be working with the internal team to configure our analytics capability to display key metrics that they would like available in PreBilt, for access to real-time insights any time and allowing managers to make informed decisions and efficiently reallocate tasks and resource where needed. 

With its intuitive interface designed for ease of use, learning how to use PreBilt is quick and simple for users, with knowledge transfer sessions with the internal team further ensuring that every user is comfortable with all aspects of the solution deployed. The customer will also benefit from our support service, ensuring PreBilt continues to operate effectively following go-live. 

Commenting on our newest win, our head of sales, Paul Fraser, said: “It is brilliant to be working with a new customer and bringing the benefits of PreBilt to even more users.” 

“It is testament to not only our fantastic reputation in the SAP supply chain sphere but also the strength of PreBilt, that we were brought on board to implement an innovative solution that can deliver the customer requirements within its current SAP IM system, without the need for a full upgrade to SAP WM.” 

PreBilt is a configurable mobile solution that can digitise end-to-end supply chain processes and eliminate the need for manual tasks or outdated RF (Radio Frequency) technology. It offers numerous business and operational benefits including improved stock accuracy and productivity, as well as reduced staff training time, stock take time, and carbon footprint.
