The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: Dow), Motorola Solutions Inc. (NYSE: MSI) and Intellitrack recently teamed up with The Diaper Alliance—a Midland, MI-based organization, that helps families properly diaper the more than 1,500 children that live with families in poverty in Midland County.

The Diaper Alliance, founded in 2010, manages and distributes more than 17,000 diapers per month to local agencies like Salvation Army and Head Start, that allocate the diapers to families in need.  The organization has rapidly expanded and recently extended service into the surrounding Great Lakes Bay Region.

“These companies donated time and effort to The Diaper Alliance to help simplify shipping and receiving,” said Debi Keyes, Executive Director. “Because of their efforts to support us, we have continued to grow as an organization and help several families in the area.”

Dow’s AutoID Expertise Center deployed an inventory tracking application known as StratusISRP. This software from Intellitrack is web-based and gives them easy access to and efficient management of their data.  The StratusISRP handles the entire inventory, shipping, receiving, and picking needs for the Diaper Alliance team and all of it is done on Motorola handheld devices—all of which were donated to the organization.

The Dow team configured the application, installed the equipment, provided training and designed the label.  In addition, Dow has been engaged with The Diaper Alliance in moving locations and setting up their current operating facility.

When diapers are donated, they come in difference sizes, package quantities and from multiple suppliers. Dow and Motorola enabled the use of handheld devices to scan products and add quantity and vendors to make the overall process more efficient.

“We are very proud to play a role in helping to improve the quality of life for local families,” said Craig Casto, Global Expertise Center leader for Dow.

IntelliTrack is proud to announce the release of its new Stratus Vendor Managed Inventory software. StratusVMI is the latest product in IntelliTrack’s new “next-generation” line of STRATUS web-based cloud interface software. The product is also a new module added to the IntelliTrack software offering.

Vendor managed inventory is a process where the vendor generates stocking orders  for their remote sites or a customer based on current dynamic inventory levels that they continuously monitor electronically. The parties (vendor, remote site or customer) have determined inventory levels, replenishment rates and costs. This automated process improves sales and inventory while maintaining inventories and eliminating stock-out situations.

StratusVMI joins the rest of IntelliTrack’s new STRATUS line of software products available in cloud format. The cloud format provides users with a faster and more cost-effective way to gather, access, and retrieve their data storage – all through shared configurable resources.

StratusVMI allows companies to manage their customer inventory and provide a better, more efficiently managed inventory control. StratusVMI gives companies a flexible, easy-to-use, and configurable inventory management solution to fit their needs and the needs of their customers.  Providing companies with a robust way to manage customer inventory, StratusVMI tracks real-time customer usage, allowing account managers to accurately access their account inventory levels. Managing reorder points and accessing export reorder data for restock order creation is easy with StratusVMI.

 “It has been over a decade since we originally designed the concept of remote inventory software” said Ron Pawlowski, COO of IntelliTrack.  “Now with the cloud computing availability, VMI is a very viable process to implement in many remote or branch warehouses.”

 IntelliTrack invites you to contact them today and learn how StratusVMI will streamline your inventory management needs.

IntelliTrack announced its bold move to support and add the Android Operating System (OS) into its mobile computing platform. Freed from the usual proprietary OS restrictions, Android OS can support applications that are simple, intuitive, and designed to meet the specific needs of the small to medium sized business served by IntelliTrack. Over the last 18 years, the company has served businesses well through proprietary OS and languages such as UPG, MS-DOS, Pocket PC, Windows Mobile and Windows CE. But, as soon as Android OS evolved into an enterprise product, IntelliTrack incorporated it into a state of the art computing client for its scanning and tracking inventory applications.

“We’ve been on the leading edge of OS and industrial computer support,” said Ron Pawlowski, “and the Android OS client support release is another example of IntelliTrack maintaining its leadership role in data collection software.”

The beauty of this new operating system is its versatility. Android OS client supports both the onsite standard storage of data and IntelliTrack’s STRATUS line of inventory tracking. It can be used on both industrial and consumer mobile computers. And, the application is completely custom designed.

This is only possible because major manufacturers of industrial mobile PCs enhanced the functionalities of their devices in ways that support this OS. This meant refocusing from a consumer product to an enterprise OS in order to offer these solutions.

  • Built in multi user log accessed with ID and password.
  • Enhanced security features for both OS and device. The best in enterprise authentication, the Android OS features state of the art data encryption protocol, remote lock and wipe in case of loss or theft, and authorized only access to the applications.
  • Enterprise peripherals supported by device ports and OS.
  • One version of the application for various operating systems. This simplifies application management and significantly reduces time and cost for IT support.
  • Automated updates for device management. Centralized remote control manages the Android devices ensuring regular updates are done without disrupting operations.
  • Integrated bar code scanning  function. The camera inside the Android device is capable of scanning any 1D or 2D bar code.

These are such important steps forward in operating system technology that IntelliTrack is absolutely confident in offering the stable and very popular  Android OS as another example of their continuing commitment to excellence.

IntelliTrack, Inc. released an Android based inventory solution for businesses. As a leading provider of affordable, user-friendly inventory management software, IntelliTrack presents its latest Android mobile computer client. This software collects data with various prompts and forms using handheld computers and smartphones with integrated scanners.

The good news from IntelliTrack is that a regular smartphone can now function as that as a data collection tool.

 “Now our clients do not have to purchase expensive handheld computers for occasional data collection. With an Android client, a smartphone can become a data collection terminal” said Ron Pawlowski, COO of IntelliTrack.

Every organization knows the challenges of keeping an up to date inventory of supplies, equipment, and other assets. Yet, inventory is crucial for effective client service, replenishing consumables, and insurance and tax purposes. Even the smallest business or nonprofit is accountable for keeping track of its assets. This software from IntelliTrack is the answer.

Collecting data with smart phones saves money, saves time and provides completely accurate records. This innovation eliminates frustrating manual entries on an old system that no one quite trusts. It takes the pressure off the employees who maintain inventory lists as an add-on to their real jobs.

The added benefit is that businesses have a choice for data storage. This new client operates with standard software offering or with the Stratus applications in a cloud format. Even offsite, the data can be consolidated, analyzed and reported. And, of course, there is instant access from the home office.

This new client software is a logical addition to IntelliTrack’s collection of innovative barcode and RFID technology. The company prides itself for being able to collect, track and manage anything that can be tagged or barcoded. They are particularly helpful for small and medium sized businesses where everyone is multitasking.

This new client software offers just that extra confidence to employees who are not comfortable handling industrial scanners that are specific to managing inventory. Even though this software performs the same job, it is through now accomplished via a familiar smartphone. This is especially important if inventory control is not the primary responsibility of any one staff. It eliminates the dread of making mistakes that show up at reconciliation time.

IntelliTrack can always be counted on to adapt the latest technology to the needs of its clients. This new software for inventory management is another stellar example of that commitment.
