Cloud Benefits for Inventory Management

In a coordinated effort to prove the power of cloud solutions to a single view of your inventory, eCommerce system integrator arvato Systems partnered with RAIN RFID leader Impinj to demonstrate the ease in harnessing hybris's YaaS platform to keep your most important asset in view.

A single accurate view of inventory is a significant victory for product-based industries.  

The results of not having products in stock when and where consumers are looking for them can be significant revenue and loyalty loss. Inventory management has historically been an important aspect of business and its challenges grow as the size of the business grows. Omni-commerce and related trends that consumers expect and demand make mastering inventory management even more critical and more complex than ever before. In recent years RAIN RFID software has made many advances but these traditional on-premise installations can require a heavy overhead in setup and maintenance costs.

"Every 3% accuracy improvement drives 1% revenue increase."

Brian Krzanich, CEO at Intel talking about Levi's

The demo of Inventory Services at SAP Sapphire showcases the benefits of cloud services for inventory management. Assets are tracked in real-time in a simple UI that is accessible for salespersons, retail managers, warehouses, eCommerce sites and high-level decision makers. The interactive presentation demonstrates the real-time updates and item tracking via a sleek and simple UI. 

arvato Systems’ activities on YaaS began in January 2015 with the exclusive collaboration with hybris labs on the in-store task management system TKT, which is part of hybris labs’ Changing Room Omni-Commerce solution.  arvato Systems Microservices were developed in close collaboration with the hybris YaaS development team to complement the hybris Core and Commerce offerings.
