As smartphones and tablets continue to revolutionize our daily lives, more and more businesses have begun using the mobile platform to further improve the productivity and efficiency of their operations. For companies who are seeking an experienced and specialized mobile solutions provider, Nano Equipment may just be the answer.

Nano Equipment’s winning entry is Stock Take App for Retail, an enterprise mobility solution that automates a laborious process in the retail industry’s supply chain. Cosmetics giant L’Oreal has adopted the solution for its operations in Singapore. It also plans to use the app at its outlets around the world.

With the app, shop assistants do stock-taking by scanning items on the shelves using a mobile device, instead of entering figures into spreadsheets. The process slashes the time taken in the tedious process of stock-taking retail goods by half. The data collected is sent in real-time wirelessly to the company’s business system. A supervisor can see the data in real-time to check on the stock take in each location. Discrepancies can be detected as soon as each session is completed. The supervisor can be alerted to discrepancies in the count of individual products down to a specific shelf in a store. A re-count can be ordered, if necessary.

Nano Equipment has developed a suite of enterprise mobility solutions designed to increase productivity and enhance efficiency through innovative use of mobile devices integrated with enterprise business systems. It has rolled out solutions for customers recently in various sectors including retails, logistics, travel and building and construction.
