eTurns TrackStock is a mobile inventory replenishment app designed for distributors who want to digitize and automate inventory replenishment in their customers’ stockrooms and on their service trucks. Sadly, most distributors are still using a manual process or a first-generation mobile app for replenishment and these processes are prone to error, take too much time, cause stockouts and overages, and waste tons of money and time on procurement.
eTurns TrackStock’s web and phone apps use scanners and sensors to optimize inventory levels and automate the customer resupply process, thereby lowering procurement and carrying costs. But most importantly, eTurns TrackStock helps distributors put a moat around their customers and increase same-customer revenues by up to 30 percent. This is because our app is 10 times faster at replenishment than ecommerce sites like Amazon Marketplace and it prevents customers from price shopping because replenishment is automatic.
eTurns can be used for vendor-managed inventory, customer-managed inventory, or consignment. Customers or reps can use our phone app to scan items they want to order, or, to track consumption and trigger replenishment. Our RFID and weight sensors track use and trigger replenishment with little or no human involvement.
