Service Truck Inventory Management

Service Truck Inventory Management

Get real-time visibility into inventory stored in trucks, storerooms & warehouses so you can manage, replenish and transfer items effectively

eTurns Service Truck Inventory Management is cloud-based software that provides contractors with real-time visibility into service truck inventories as well as parts and labor usage by job. Then it automates inventory management.

  • Manage field service truck inventory with iPhones/Androids/tablets and the eTurns TrackStock Truck App.
  • Helps contractors make sure they have the right parts in the right quantities on their trucks
  • Creates work orders with photos and signature capture for immediate customer approval

"eTurns has live capture of parts usage, unlike our ERP. With eTurns on our 75 service trucks, we decreased line items on each truck from 315 to 170 and the amount of inventory on each truck from $20k to $14k. eTurns helped me streamline procurement so that my inventory levels went from $1.6M to $875K, for a one-time savings of $725,000. Plus, we are saving over $130,000 a year in reduced carrying costs." We reduced our 8 people in procurement to 3 and redeployed those people to dispatch and customer service."

-- Carlos, Sr. Director of Operations, Service America

Here’s how it works:

A contractor...

  1. scans out parts and record hours spent by creating an online workorder,
  2. shows the online workorder to the customer for approval,
  3. presses “sync” which sends the work order to the eTurns cloud and then to the customer for accurate billing with no data double entry. The tech gets an email confirmation.

Optimize Service Truck Inventory

eTurns automatically updates truck inventory and triggers replenishment when quantities fall below a minimum. Orders are sent to distributors to resupply the parts. The contractor benefits from optimized inventories and maximized service levels as well as the elimination of stockouts and shrinkage. eTurns also lets contractors trend usage of parts and capture payment through a credit card reader. In summary, eTurns helps contractors take costs out of service truck inventory management and use techs more productively.

Reduce shrinkage on service trucks

eTurns TrackStock allows service truck technicians to capture actual parts and labor usage on a job for accurate customer billing. Periodic cycle counts monitor correct inventory levels which highlight discrepancies.
