TMW Systems has introduced the TMW Parts Room app, designed to help fleet maintenance and service center personnel perform a variety of parts inventory management processes quickly and easily using an Android or iOS device.
The Parts Room was introduced at the Technology & Maintenance Council’s Annual Meeting and Transportation Technology Exhibition in Nashville, Tenn., and it is available for users of the company’s TMT Fleet Maintenance and TMT Service Center solutions.
“Fleets and service center operations are challenged to reduce parts inventory and labor costs while improving service levels – and they can do both with the help of a modern shop management solution,” said Caroline Lyle, vice president, marketing, TMW. “TMW Parts Room streamlines the physical inventory process, which enables users to save time and improve accuracy and control in this cost-intensive area.”
With the Parts Room app, the parts manager or other employees can use their Android or iOS device to perform a complete physical inventory for the parts room, or narrow the list by bin, part number range or part type. Several filters are available to further streamline the process, including the ability to scan only uncounted parts or parts that show a quantity variance. Users also can scan the part number for lookup in conjunction with an inventory adjustment.
Functionality for administrative users of the Parts Room app includes reviewing open inventories, closing completed inventories and performing a quick adjustment for a single part.
