The first annual Digital Inventory Report, by RFgen, reveals mixed results relating to inventory automation, inventory management challenges, cloud migration and the future state of the industry.
Jerry Touslee, VP of marketing at RFgen, says, “Our first-ever Digital Inventory Report highlights an excellent variety of data from inventory management professionals at enterprise companies in North America across a wide variety of industries. This report is a beneficial tool for any professional or company with a need to track inventory both inside and outside of the warehouse. It provides real insight and key indicators to help guide decision making and investments regarding inventory management technology.”
RFgen findings include:
- Lack of trained staff is the most significant challenge for implementing digital inventory technologies
- Half of the industry is already in or planning to move to the cloud
- Nearly 9 of 10 respondents expressed concerns over IT security
- Respondents are considering future expansion of their mobile supply chain management
