The potential benefits of parts inventory management software

Let’s take a look at a few common parts inventory mistakes in this episode of On the Road.

It’s already enough of a headache to have to send a truck in for maintenance—pulling a truck from its route for an extended period of time is, of course, not a good recipe for making money with that truck. But if the shop doesn’t have the right part when the truck gets there? That headache gets upgraded to a migraine.

If your fleet runs its own shop, it’s important to stay on top of your inventory levels—tracking how much of each part you have, how frequently they are typically used and when it’s time to order new parts. Many shops now are finding that the easiest way to do this is by investing in parts inventory management software, eliminating human error and paper tracking from the equation.

Why is that? Let’s take a look at a few common parts inventory mistakes in this episode of On the Road.
