Clear Spider’s COVID Solution
The COVID pandemic brings with it unprecedented and unique challenges for industries all over the world, and it is particularly stressful for supply chain operations. Clear Spider is what you need to tackle inventory management and supply chain issues in these times.
Challenge: Safe Working Environment
Supply chain operations are complex enough as it is. Add on the numerous physical interactions required to move goods from one place to another, and the manual input of transactions into legacy software and hardware systems, and it’s a recipe for a COVID disaster.
Solution: Use Touchless Technology
The best way to improve the health and safety of your supply chain operations is by reducing physical interactions to reduce the spread of COVID. Clear Spider’s SNAP2 product is a no-touch solution that makes inventory and order management effortless. By implementing SNAP2, you gain greater operational efficiency while reducing the number of physical interactions required to run your organization successfully.
Challenge: Cycle Count at Client Sites
With stay-at-home policies, shelter-in-place orders and lockdowns, many supplier organizations scaled back or suspended client site visits to conduct cycle counts and take new product orders. Reduced client site visits means less visibility into client needs and lower sales volume overall.
Solution: Customer Managed Inventory
The best way to gain insight into your client’s inventory needs is with a customer managed inventory management (CMI) system. Clear Spider’s CMI solution offers remote capabilities for your clients to manage their own inventory, so you no longer need to visit their locations to do cycle counts and take product orders. Your clients will automatically order products from you directly through the Clear Spider CMI system whenever they need to replenish their inventory.
Challenge: Business is in Recovery Mode
Many organizations are still recovering from COVID impacts to their business and industry. This may mean reduced growth opportunities in the short term, while bringing up questions of when would be the right time to improve upon existing inventory management solutions.
Solution: Build Back Better
Organizations are taking advantage of this time to implement smarter and better inventory management solutions. Take the time to find, implement, and configure the right solutions for your operations. You may have had more to do since the COVID outbreak. Or less. Either way, setting up the right inventory management solution now means you can meet increasing demand for your product and services now and in the future.
