BT Inventory Trace

Optimise inventory and minimise costs.

BT Inventory Trace is an inventory management solution. It provides the ability to count, manage and track your inventory as it flows through your organisation. Designed specifically for enterprises that manufacture, produce and/or transport goods, BT Inventory Trace uses RFID and/or barcode technologies to track items moving through your organisation.

BT Inventory Trace turns captured data into actionable business intelligence to give you an accurate understanding of your inventory, helping you to reduce buffer stock, identify misplaced goods, relocate stock and comply with regulatory standards or service level agreements.

BT Inventory Trace will integrate with your existing enterprise systems, such as SAP and Oracle. It conforms to industry standards and can be deployed across open networks.
