Avnet has released a free POURS app compatible with iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. With mobile technology advancements, POURS has streamlined our customer's inventory management enabling them to monitor activity and take action on provisions without logging into the POURS website from their PC.
Avnet’s innovative, web-based Point-of-Use Replenishment System (POURS) is a turnkey solution for customers who wish to use bar code scanning as a trigger for efficient replenishment.
This highly automated and proven solution works perfectly with Avnet’s complementary solutions, including JIT/Kanban, Consignment, and VMI. The seamless integration of these solutions provides you with the crucial speed and simplicity you need to streamline your fulfilment process for material replenishment.
If your company is using a pull-based Kanban approach, you’ll find that POURS will really come into its own. It delivers significant benefits with a simplified, automated solution combining both bar-coding and EDI technologies that not only drives results but gives you a quick ROI too.
For further information about POURS or for those customers who have a POURS installation and Log-in and would like to view their supply chain now, you can access our Avnet POURS Global site.
