Mobile Inventory Count - Enter the Number of Packages per Item

Updated 1 month ago by NIr Malchy

General

  • Use this method in a large distribution warehouse or facility.
  • This is a quick way to do a hand count to see if the number of packages of an item is accurate.
  • Select an item, count all of the packages, and enter the total number of packages for the item.
  • The purpose of this count is to find discrepancies, inform you, and start a count of the actual packages if you need.
  • You can perform this count on the web app without a scanner. See more here:
  • Use the Android Mobile App to scan.
  • Use the Flourish Web App to submit, review, complete, and cancel inventory counts.
  • You can perform only one Inventory count at a time.
