An important key to your continued success is to effectively manage your most valuable asset, your business inventory. ASA’s Mobile Inventory Manager (MIM) module with barcode technology can take your business to the next level by providing you with the tools necessary to automate and streamline manual processes, improve inventory accuracy, make your employees more productive, enhance security and reduce shrinkage.

Even ‘typical’ shrinkage carries a considerable cost. It can take 4 to 5 sales to overcome the loss of just one tire. Multiply this by numerous incidents and the impact becomes significant to your bottom line.

Mobile Inventory Manager (MIM) incorporates a small handheld device that includes integrated barcode scanner in a rugged case to handle harsh warehouse conditions. The MIM scanning device allows you to quickly take physical inventory, process inventory receipts and transfers in TireMaster Enterprise (TME) in real-time. And with the ability to easily scan barcodes for accurate physical inventory counts in real-time, reconcile adjustments and post to inventory, MIM will help you to shave hours and even days off of the task of taking physical inventory. This streamlined process will allow you to incorporate inventory management best practices, such as cycle counts, to maintain a tight control on your inventory.
