pCount is both an Android and iOS Inventory Audit application developed by AppsUnify for a client that provides software and solutions to auto parts suppliers, distributors, and retailers. pCount allows warehouse personnel to physically count and record actual inventory quantities on specific warehouse items, located in assigned aisles, bays, and rows in very large warehouse facilities. The app simplifies and expedites the process of conducting annual physical counts as part of a more encompassing inventory auditing and valuation process.
As physical inventory gets out of sync with book inventory, the fulfillment process becomes more and more problematic. Meaning, more and more orders are logged as backorders, resulting in loss revenue, and ultimate customer attrition. These situations are alleviated by bringing physical and book inventory into alignment, but the physical count process generally results in business disruption as categories of inventory and warehouse zones are flagged on hold. This complexity can be effectively controlled by simplifying the count process, and providing the tools warehouse personnel require to expedite the count. pCount was designed, and developed with this objective, and presently enables significant savings for some of the largest suppliers and retailers of auto parts in North America.
This app functions on all commonly used versions of the Android operating system including 4.2 Jellybean all the way up to 6.0 Marshmallow, and is effective in form factors from 5 inch phones to 11 inch tablets. The app is compatible with all major network carriers including Verizon Wireless, AT&T Mobility, and T-Mobile. This enables physical count to be performed in local warehouses through Wi Fi networks, or in remotely dispersed locations over the major carriers. On the Apple platforms the app runs on iOS 8 to iOS 10, on iPhones with form factors ranging from 4.5 to 6 inches, and iPads ranging in sizes 7 to 10 inches. In addition, as the App is upgraded, extreme measures are taken to ensure that it is fully backwards compatible with older generations, thereby minimizing the investments clients must undertake as newer releases become generally available.
