5 Reasons You Need Container Tracking Software
As the manager of a company, you know that it’s time consuming to manually track your containers. More importantly, it is easy to make mistakes.
 
That’s why it is important for you to use a container tracking software to automate tracking your assets. This will give you the opportunity to focus your time on more important matters. Here are five benefits of RTI tracking software to your business.
 
TRUSTED DATA
 
When using spreadsheets to track returnables, you can end up with corrupted data. It is easy to make mistakes when you have many formulas.
 
Even the smallest mistake can make a dramatic difference in your data. In turn, this could lead to unfortunate consequences.
 
Finding and correcting these mistakes takes far too much of your valuable time. But with container tracking software, you won’t have to worry about flawed data.
 
The software sets up proper procedures and protocols to edit asset data. Also, it prevents users from making changes by mistake.
 
Plus, it makes it easy to allow only certain people to access key information. As a result, this eliminates the possibility of an employee altering data.
 
 
REAL-TIME TRACKING
 
Because paper records become outdated, it’s possible for containers to be double-booked. Additionally, spreadsheets do not leave an audit trail.
 
That makes it harder to preserve the true container count and keep the data in sync. As a result, inaccurate data is likely to effect efficiency and time-management.
 
But software can track assets using bar codes or RFID, increasing efficiency. This means that your employees can check equipment in and out. At the same time, keeping asset records current.

CENTRAL-MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
 
Spreadsheets or physical records are easy to lose, misplace, or misfile. Unlike spreadsheets, tracking software keeps all related information in one place.
 
From one platform, you can know the location, status and condition of your containers. Then, you can access schedule maintenance checks and sign equipment in and out of service. Also, you can view vendor history to easily order new items.
WORK AS A TEAM
 
Spreadsheets are either shared completely with employees or not shared at all. There is no mid-way. But with a container tracking system, you control which users can access the information.
 
Plus, many users can use the software at one time. Thus, software makes it easy for teams to work together to track containers and other assets. And it allows employees to keep this information up-to-date.
 
Also, you may include relevant support documents to keep other team members informed.
 
ADVANTAGES OF FLEXIBILITY
 
Last, container tracking software is far more adaptable than regular spreadsheets. For instance, it can integrate with other software, such as an ERP, for a single system of record.
 
Also, the right software includes data collection options that work with your specific workflows. This lets you gain real-time information through bar codes, RFID or a combination of the two.
