Minimize disruptions to your business by streamlining the physical count process

Outstanding customer service and optimum manufacturing productivity require accurate, up-to-date inventory information. GLOVIA G2 Physical Inventory provides this information through an automated process that minimizes disruptions to business operations during the physical count process.

Flexible Cycle Counting

With Physical Inventory, you can take comprehensive, enterprise-wide physical inventory counts or count a fewer number of items with greater frequency. The system dynamically highlights items for cycle counts based on user-specific criteria. By counting items more frequently, you improve inventory accuracy and avoid costly errors in material planning and scheduling.

You may also completely eliminate the need for the annual physical inventory. The system incorporates full capabilities for physical inventory variance reconciliation, results and impact reporting, and perpetual or your entire enterprise.

Closed-Loop Process

Physical Inventory provides a full-structured, closed loop process for counting, reconciling and updating inventories. Flexible freeze options allow GLOVIA G2 to perform inventory counts without disrupting business operations. While, exceptions reports warn of potential error conditions whenever counts conflict with existing data.
