Miles Technologies, Inc. Helps Manage Field Repair for Telecommunications CompanyProblem

Customer has over 100 warehouses and 200 field repair technicians. Each technician is given a list of materials and parts, and manually enters items to be removed from inventory.

After an Internal audit, it was determined that the inventory system was not effective. It became obvious that they needed a better way to track items. The customer contacted Miles to see if there was a better solution.
