Challenge Of Managing Inventory

Before Kurt found HandiFox he was using a previous supplier in San Diego although he cannot recall the name of the product. This product wasn’t the right fit for Kurt and his company, as it didn’t include payment options, invoice options and the ability to connect every member of his team. Though Kurt does have a store location a majority of his business relies on the trucks being able to deliver products once a sale is made. This places a high importance on the communication between the store, salesmen and truck drivers on what inventory is in stock.

It wasn’t long before Kurt realized that his company needed a more comprehensive way of managing his inventory. It was vital that his store workers, truck drives and salesmen were all on the same page when it came to inventory. When looking into different forms of inventory management Kurt Casas came across HandiFox’s mobile inventory management software.

Kurt considers one of the most vital proponents of HandiFox’s software to be that it enables him to guarantee same day delivery to auto shops. This is because anyone in his system is able to look into HandiFox’s inventory manager option to figure out which truck has which products and can send those trucks to the appropriate buyer at any given time. “HandiFox has made our whole system paperless, allows us to invoice customers and capture the signature all on the spot, it is easy to use”, says Kurt. Some of the other features Kurt finds invaluable is that it works well on android phones making it mobile and quicker as well as it’s integrated system connecting all aspects of his business.
