Project Details

To manage their warehouse inventory, the client relied heavily on ad hoc emailed updates and lacked a standardized process or system. Client requests, inventory issues, and release forms were handled via email communication, which often resulted in lost information or wasted time.

InfoWorks was engaged to create a strategy around the problem the department was having and to reshape the solution to be more effective for the client.

We held a visioning sessions to understand what the needs of the client were and how they mapped to the corporate strategy.  From these sessions, our team built a system that enabled the warehouse workers to release any inventory online (i.e., current, past, future), as well as sign releases electronically via Adobe Sign. Throughout the project, InfoWorks consultants served as liaisons between the business and development teams to continue the product transformation and build features with client input.

The implementation of this system reduced the workload for warehouse team members, allowing them to leverage the online system with minimal errors, provided transparency into the asset development process and improved corporate communications, and increased the success of the clients’ team by educating them on the new process and ensuring they could navigate new interface.
