Inventory Management Solutions for Public Works and Utilities
Inventory management can be costly and time-consuming. Successful warehouse management is key to tracking inventory and optimizing your entire supply chain, from initial requisitions to asset installations. Efficient inventory management helps keep your costs down, minimizes job delays due to material availability and ensures reorders happen on-schedule.

Independence Missouri Power and Light uses Storeroom as part of a holistic approach to managing the utility’s workflows from warehouse inventory to work orders to GIS.
Physical inventory audits often require warehouse operations to stop until the audit is complete. By configuring cycle counts in Storeroom, you can create scheduled reminders to audit materials incrementally throughout the year. From private sector warehouses to large municipal governments, Storeroom simplifies the logistics of inventory audits.
The City of Grand Rapids, MI, is the second largest city in Michigan. When they implemented Storeroom to manage the inventory for their Traffic & Safety Department and sign shop, they were able to fine-tune workflows and maximize audit efficiency.

The City of St. George, UT, has implemented the barcode scanning technology of Storeroom to create an integrated process to scan materials directly onto work orders. By optimizing inventory management, the city was able to eliminate manual data entry and boost productivity.
The City of Weatherford, TX, saw significant cost savings in just a short period of time. They transitioned from an in-house legacy system that did not integrate work orders with their warehouse to an integrated platform using Storeroom. When they upgraded to Cityworks Storeroom, their field crews, GIS, and warehouse had a fully open line of communication. After just one full year, their annual inventory variance was the best it had been in eight years.
“Prior to the Storeroom implementation, our inventory audit saw a variance of negative $66,706—or 0.02 percent. In the first fiscal year after the implementation, the warehouse inventory audit saw a variance of positive $3067—or 0.00089 percent.”
