Cycle Count

Follow

Cycle counting is an alternative stock counting method performed by counting a small portion of the warehouse’s inventory every month, week, day, etc. Once these partial counts have covered the entire inventory, the cycle count process starts over. Its primary purpose is to solve for the warehouse’s inventory accuracy in order to prevent potential losses.

Offline Support

Cycle count can be processed offline in case of poor or no internet connectivity. The project needs to be created initially online. Once the runners are joined they can perform the scanning offline. Once the scanning is completed, whenever the internet is available the scanned details will be synced back and the committer can perform the action once all the runners sync their data.

To start a counting process with the i360 app follow the below steps:

Creating Projects
