In this white paper we compare the capabilities of item-locator based systems, such as Warehouse Management Systems and Inventory Tracking Systems with container-tracking systems like BellHawk.
The paper starts out by examining some case studies where item locator systems have failed to accurately track inventory and then proceeeds to explain the differences between item-locator and container tracking systems. The paper then lists 10 situations where only container tracking and not item locator systems will meet the needs of manufacturers and industrial distributors.
Finally, the paper concludes that item locator system are simpler to deploy and use but if you need to separately track containers of material or fall into one of these ten special categories, then it is essential to use container based tracking.
