r2c Online, the industry leading fleet and workshop management platform, has launched Stock, a brand-new digital stock management tool.
The Stock module is available as an add-on to the connected r2c Online platform and is designed to help workshops manage their parts stock more efficiently. r2c Online Managing Director, Nick Walls, explained: “Simply put, the Stock module is about smarter stock control and parts allocation. Our core workshop product already optimises efficiency during the repair and maintenance process, so the natural progression was to add stock management to this.”
Using the new stock management tool, users upload their parts listing to the cloud-based platform, creating a digital inventory. All stock movements are then recorded and updated via the system. Parts can also be allocated directly to jobs. The result is full visibility of a real-time stock inventory, allowing users to make more informed purchasing decisions on current and future parts requirements.
The new solution was unveiled at a launch event which took place at Sheffield United’s football ground, Bramall Lane, on 16th January 2020. The event was attended by over 50 transport professionals and existing r2c Online customers.
Chris Carr, Managing Director at Cars2Trucks and one of the guests attending the event, commented: “As our business has grown, we’ve recognised the need for an ‘all-in-one’ package for our workshop management. We liked the feel and simplicity of the r2c system but knew it could offer much more than what we were using it for. This launch has been the ideal time for us to investigate further and we’re very impressed by what we’ve seen – so much so we’ve decided to upgrade to the full r2c package including the new Stock Management module.”
Nick Walls concluded, “Stock removes the need for guesswork or laborious inventory checks. Users have a clear and fully auditable digital record of their parts stock, with automatically adjusted stock records and alerts. We’re really excited to introduce the new module to future customers, as well as the 1200 workshops already using r2c Online throughout the UK.”
